  • SAN DIEGO -- A spokesman for the family of a California man who abducted a 16-year-old girl and killed her mother and young brother says a member of the family is the beneficiary of his life insurance.

    Andrew Spanswick said Monday that James Lee DiMaggio left $112,000 to Hannah Anderson's paternal grandmother. Spanswick says he doesn't know why but believes it is for Hannah's benefit.

    Spanswick says DiMaggio, who was killed in a shootout with FBI agents, named Bernice Anderson as his beneficiary in 2011 instead of his sister.

    The policy was provided by The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, where DiMaggio worked as a telecommunications technician.

    DiMaggio died Aug. 10  in the Idaho wilderness. Hannah was rescued.
