Sister Of Fugitive Killed In Idaho In 2013 Seeks $20 Million From FBI

San Deigo Sheriff's Department

The sister of a man killed in the Idaho wilderness after he was suspected of kidnapping a teen girl and killing her mother and brother in California has filed a claim seeking $20 million from the FBI.

Lora DiMaggio Robinson's lawyer, C. Keith Greer, says James DiMaggio never got a chance for a fair trial before he was shot by FBI agents two years ago.

Greer says he filed a claim with the FBI on Thursday and plans on filing a lawsuit in Idaho's federal court next week.

DiMaggio was killed in 2013 after authorities said he abducted 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and killed her relatives in Boulevard, California.

The teen's disappearance triggered a massive search spanning much of the western U.S. and parts of Canada and Mexico.
