Interviews reveal inconsistencies in Hannah Anderson case
CBS8 ^ | October 10, 2013 | Phil Blauer

Posted on 10/11/2013 7:00:12 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

In an interview on the Today Show, Hannah Anderson described when she first learned that family friend James DiMaggio had an evil plan for her. But the teen's interview also revealed apparent inconsistencies in her story....

"The point where I realized that something was wrong is when we go to his house and my mom's car wasn't there," she said.

However, in this video reviewed by News 8, Christina Anderson's Chevy Blazer is at the Boulevard home, parked next to the main house .....

"He drugged me and I was out, then I woke up in Idaho," Hannah said during the interview. "So I don't remember anything between there".....

But in a previous interview on Dateline NBC, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said both Hannah and DiMaggio were "awake" when they were captured on surveillance video as they passed through a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Pine Valley at midnight.....

Finally, just minutes before agents moved in and shot DiMaggio to death in the Idaho wilderness, Hannah said he was trying to create a signal, which seems to contrary for someone who had just spent seven days running from the law.

"He was trying to start a fire to signal for help. Then all of a sudden the fire wasn't working. So, I told him, I said well I read in a book that if you fire a gun in the air three times that means S-O-S. So, he went to fire it once and I was watching him. And, then he fired it the second time but he like lowered it. Then a bunch of guns went off and I looked and he fell on the ground," Hannah said.

In her interview, Hannah Anderson never explained who DiMaggio was trying to signal, or why.

So then if he has kidnapped her and is running from the law why would he want a signal fire to bring in the authorities???

And if LE has been watching him all this time, then how come they shot a person trying to start a signal fire and firing a three shot SOS that they should be familiar with???

Sheriff Gore, would you like to address those questions???

” Then all of a sudden the fire wasn’t working.”

Probably went on strike.

Just think — if he had just waited two months there would have been no Amber Alert.

It is very possible for him to have given her a drug that sedated or anesthetized her without causing her eyes to close. When I have anesthetized animals, I put ointment in their eyes to prevent injury since the eyes remain open.

I think that’s entirely possible but I’m trying to imagine her taking Ambien in San Diego and then waking up 3 days later in Idaho. Would that have been with or without bathroom breaks???

I wouldn’t put much stock in this girl’s testimony. She gives off that compulsive liar vibe, big time.

Yeah, and if you are going to drug someone to kidnap them, you generally don’t prop them up in the front seat where everyone can see them, especially when you are driving through checkpoints.

At least, I imagine. Not talking from personal experience :)

My understanding is that at the checkpoint there would have been atleast a half dozen armed bp agents there and they would have walked around to her side and asked for her identification —

Nah, most of the time they just glance at the occupants and then, assuming they don't look like illegal immigrants, wave them through.

That said, this girl's story has seemed hinky from the get-go. She may not have known what he did, but I don't think she went unwillingly.

Yeah, that’s what I would assume also. Maybe if she was a small child one could get away with saying “Oh, my daughter is sleeping, please don’t wake her”, but I don’t think that would fly with a teenage passenger.

“She may not have known what he did, but I don’t think she went unwillingly.”

That should be simple enough to determine, if the cops cared to do so. She says she was drugged... so do a drug test. Check if there are any ligature marks from being tied up.

Here is the previous article from this guy and what he said about the BP Checkpoint:

“News 8 wanted to know why Hannah didn’t try to escape or alert one of the armed, federal agents that she had just been kidnapped. But the Border Patrol and the Sheriff’s department have refused to talk about what happened. They won’t even confirm whether the checkpoint was staffed, opened or closed when DiMaggio’s vehicle passed through.”

yep

she gives off a creepy little “I’m wearing short shorts drinking Starbucks and yukking it up at my Mom’s funeral” vibe

and posting mushy stuff to her dead brother just like Casey Anthony did to her murdered child

I get the feeling the cops really don’t want to know, and just want to call this case closed

I love all of the headlines today like this one:

Kidnap survivor Hannah Anderson was forced to play Russian roulette

Did anyone bother to ask why a guy would put a loaded gun in the hands of someone he just kidnapped who just might use it on him???

BP checkpoints usually don’t ask for id. They usually just ask your citizenship. If you say “U.S.” they wave you through.

I have heard that when the Feds brought a surveillance helicopter close to their camp he immediately grabbed the girl and held a gun to her. This happened more than once so HRT was inserted some distance away and moved into the camp on foot. As soon as he was confronted he acted like he was going to hurt the girl, and he got shot.

The signal fire, SOS story is a delusion. Who knows what kind of wacky things were going through this guy's mind. He killed two people, drove 1000 miles to a wilderness area, and takes his cat.

The media is okay with speculation as news in THIS “trufer” case but anything with the president, global warming scam, etc. is “moonbat territory”.

Obviously Hannah didn't get the memo that that was supposed to be the official story.

Why would she make up this signal fire story since the official story makes her look better as a damselle in distress.

it would explain her fingerprints on the gun, if a gun can be linked to murdering her family

got to wonder who she played “Russian roulette” with after all

That’s a good point — as a matter of fact a great point.

Her fingerprints may be all over that gun, and she knows it, and the sheriff knows it, and this Russian Roulette story may be her way of trying to get out in front of it and explain those fingerprints away.

It’s funny how that Ambien didn’t wipe away the memory of her playing Russian Roulette or her brother upstairs in the house trying to yell — whatever that sounds like — or her being hungry on the trip and them not stopping or that stop at that gas station where she is alone inside with the attendant.

It must have been that new sleep medication — Convenient Ambien.

I thought she was the one who was trying to start the fire. Either way, a "signal" fire makes no sense.

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said both Hannah and DiMaggio were "awake" when they were captured on surveillance video as they passed through a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Pine Valley at midnight.

That means the other guy who wouldn't say if the checkpoint was even opened just wasn't talking. One would think the BP would have at least stopped a 40 year old guy and a teenage girl passing through at 10 pm. The BP would also have seen her zip tied and her tear stained terrified face. The BP would have been even more suspicious if a teen girl was zonked out. Uh, huh. Yep, sort of blows her story.

Yes, great point about the fingerprints on the gun. 1) bad guys don't give loaded guns to their victims and 2) kinda hard to play Russian Roulette handcuffed.

I'd like to know what kids at her school think. She caught a lot of flak from them when she was texting and tweeting on a new phone within hours of her rescue. She was smiling and living it up at the funeral fundraisers. And two months later, her story is still changing. Come on, Hannah, keep talking.

Oh, yeah, and what about her mom’s car not being there when it was? If she can’t tell the truth about a simple thing like that, then you know she’s an habitual liar who has been lying so long she doesn’t know what the truth is.

And where do you find time to play Russian Roulette when you are trying to rig the house with incendiaries and packing for a trip to the wilderness???

And what’s she complaining about having to carry a 50 pound bag in the wilderness — I see third graders coming home from school with bags about that heavy and they don’t complain.

In her next interview someone will ask her more about the signal fire — I can’t wait for her to elaborate on that.

Sorry, I keep getting interrupted on my end.

Something else, what about the cat? He'd already killed the dog so why would he care one wit about the cat? He wouldn't. OTOH, she would. She would know the cat would burn up in the house so she put it in the carrier and took it with them on their little lovers' adventure. She claims he wouldn't let her eat but flip flops to him wanting her to eat. But who fed the cat? Who cleaned up after it? Seriously? Carting a cat to the wilderness? The horseback riders who saw them thought they were camping around the area and didn't mention a cat. That means, they were already settled into camp and the cat was at camp. So, why risk going out on the trail that day? Why risk her trying to escape or bumping into people and her crying out for help? Yeah, no doubt, she was running this game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2W9NkhoRRxg

Again, she's all happy, happy. This time while in NYC doing the Today Show. She's got her friends and they're posing for pics and going to dingbat Miley Cyrus' concert. Either the Today Show footed the bill for them all or she's going through her DiMaggio inheritance. Excuse me, but most people would still be very troubled, grieving and staying close to home especially as it was right at her brother's 9th birthday. They wouldn't immediately be out partying. How many boyfriends has she gone through the past two months? The latest of her many manicures and pedicures is a tribute to her mother and brother. (Note to my family - please don't embarrass me and my parenting skills by nail polishing my name onto your toes and call it a tribute and certainly don't show it all over fb and national tv)

The cat was his.

The Anderson’s also had a cat but they left that one at their house.

The horse riders saw the cat and told them that it would attract bears and coyotes.

How did she know that she was hungry and that he wouldn’t let her eat if she slept all the way from his house to Idaho — it must have been that new kind of slow release nutritional Ambien.

Bad girl Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana is bad girl Hannah Idaho’s idol.

Book coming out November 2 about this by Chelsea Hoffman — whoever she is.

Then what was her grandmother talking about getting Hannah’s cat back? Some reports say it was his cat, other say it is hers. If it was his, then who in their right minds would want that freaks’ cat? Either way, you’re nuts to to go in a kidnapping spree and hiking through the wilderness with a cat. What bad guy lets his victim soak her pretty little manicured toes in the river while playing with the cat? Bring on the bears! There are three cats - hers are Puss Puss and Oliver and his is Princess. Some articles say the cat is gray and she has lots of fb pictures of a gray cat so who knows which is which. Unless the cat was in a carrier at the time of the “rescue”, he’d have been long gone at DiMaggio’s first shot, much less after the volley from the LE (you know, that shower of shots when she was next to him giving survival tips or, no, wait, when she was far enough away from him for the LE to target him or, no, wait when he grabbed at her arm or, no, wait...).

That book is already out of date. Everytime she opens her mouth, out comes a whole new chapter.

Found this comment after the article:

“2013 Nisan Versa has a factory installed VTRS (Vehicle Tracking Recovery System ) that can not be disabled without removing the motor. Dealer, Lender protection. That’s how they located the car. Then they sent in the Horseman one is an Ex Sheriff the other a Back Country Guide to scope out the situation and location. Why they insist it is because of the public, the Amber Alert, and the Media that she is alive today I have no idea....”

So I checked it out and sure enough his vehicle had VTRS:

http://www.nissanusa.com/buildyournissan/accessory-images/2012/VSD/XGC20NIC101C0/A153/Versa-Sedan/1.6-SV/Vehicle-Tracking-and-Recovery-System/Exterior

which means that the commenter just may be right. With VTRS that vehicle would have been readily located and tracked without an Amber Alert.

Hannah fills in the blanks in this interview with Savannah on 10/10/13 and raises a whole lot of questions in the process:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKjAq279XCQ

Got to house but didn’t see mom’s car even though mom was tied up in garage and car was found right outside the garage after the fire.

Given Ambien and slept all the way to Idaho although she is alert at Border Patrol checkpoint at midnight.

Dimaggio was starting a signal fire and fired 3 SOS shots before being shot to death by FBI.
