Another search warrant has been released in the Hannah Anderson case, this time revealing that investigators seized incendiary items that could have been used to spark the blaze that destroyed suspect Jim DiMaggio's Boulevard home.
The items taken from the residence by San Diego sheriffs detectives include an “incendiary device,” “arson wire,” a workbench that contained “arson-related items,” other wires and connectors, a projectile, a rocket engine package and two containers for model rockets, according to CBS8.com.
Investigators also collected Winchester rifle rounds, two empty boxes of .22 bullets, cut shotgun shells, boxes for handcuffs and two used condoms.
Authorities found the bodies of Lakeside resident Christina Anderson, 44, and a boy, on DiMaggio's property Aug. 4, and a day later issued an Amber Alert seeking the dead woman's missing children, Hannah, 16, and Ethan, 8.
Though they suspected the dead child was Ethan, initially they searched for him until his remains could be positively identified using DNA.
The identification process was completed Aug. 9, the same day DiMaggio's missing Nissan Versa was spotted outside Cascade, Idaho, north of Boise. Hannah was rescued in a nearby wilderness area a day later, and DiMaggio was killed by an FBI agent after U.S. marshals spotted their campsite during an aerial search.
Detectives, according to CBS8, also found a handwritten note in the rubble of DiMaggio's home, but sheriff's officials said the contents will not be revealed.
Investigators strongly suspected arson destroyed the property because the fires in a garage, where Christina Anderson was found, and in DiMaggio's cabin, where Ethan was found, were separate.
The discovery of a crowbar near the woman's body was revealed in a warrant released Wednesday, but in the latest document unsealed by the court Detective Troy Dugal connects the tool directly to her death.
“It currently appears that the crowbar could be an instrumental weapon used in the homicide," he stated, according to the report.
