A San Diego man who abducted a young girl and allegedly murdered her mother and brother may actually be the child’s biological father.

The family of James DiMaggio, the suspect in Hannah Anderson’s abduction, is asking investigators to conduct a paternity test, adding a twist to a case which authorities say is “winding down.”

DiMaggio, who was killed in the shootout leading to Hannah’s rescue, left $112,000 in life-insurance money to the children’s grandmother. Hannah’s abduction last month triggered a statewide Amber Alert, which led authorities to discover DiMaggio and Hannah camping in the remote Idaho wilderness. The bodies of Hannah’s mother, Christina Anderson, and 8-year old brother Ethan were discovered in DiMaggio’s San Diego home shortly after the abduction.
