FBI agents tracked down and killed a man suspected of kidnapping a teenage girl in California and fleeing with her into the Idaho wilderness.
After officials spotted a campsite in the remote Idaho backwoods from the air, an FBI tactical team went in on the ground, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore told a press conference.
James Lee DiMaggio, 40, was shot and killed by an FBI agent, Gore said. "Obviously, we would have liked Mr. DiMaggio to surrender and face justice in a court of law, but that's not going to be the case."
The hostage, identified as Hannah Anderson, 16, appeared to be in "pretty good shape" and would be evaluated at a hospital, Gore said.
DiMaggio allegedly killed Hannah's mother, Christina Anderson, and her eight-year-old brother Ethan. Their bodies were found on Aug. 4 in the suspect's burning home in Boulevard, a small town east of San Diego in southern California.
Law enforcement officials in several states conducted a manhunt and were finally tipped off when a horseback rider called Thursday to report having spotted a man and a girl at a remote location in central Idaho.
