Aunt's observations of Hannah's abductor

  • Amber Alert suspect James DiMaggio was shot and killed during Hannah Anderson's rescue attempt in Idaho wilderness
  • DiMaggio had kidnapped Hannah, 16; she's been reunited with her father in California

The bodies of Hannah Anderson’s mother, Christina Anderson, 44, and her brother Ethan, 8, were found in suspected Amber Alert abductor James DiMaggio’s burned house east of San Diego earlier this month.

Jennifer Willis, Hannah Anderson's great aunt, appeared on HLN’s Dr. Drew On Call Monday night. She says she was so close to Anderson's mom that she considered her a twin.

In this clip, Willis talks about DiMaggio's questionable interactions with Anderson and her friends.

Dr. Drew On Call airs Monday through Thursday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
