That's the the hikers -- in in Idaho would have never known to people they saw along the trail where -- and DiMaggio.
I want to emphasize -- during the law enforcement interviews with -- It became very clear to us very clear that she is a victim in every sense of the word in this horrific crime.
From the time of her abduction and boulevard -- recovery.

She was under extreme extreme duress.
It was also during the interview with -- After her recovery up in Idaho that she was first told about the deaths of her mother and her little brother.

And -- Thank you -- -- On behalf of the FBI family.
Let me just say that we offer our condolences and our deepest sympathies to the Anderson family for the tragedy they have endured and suffered this last week.
We also -- the sheriff and mr.
-- statements that they need the time to grieve and to get back to a somewhat normal lifestyle without most of the interruptions that we are now presented to them.
And I would also like to say that.
The FBI very much appreciates the law enforcement partnerships that we have throughout the country not just here in San Diego.
But it's the partnerships that we enjoy here with the San Diego sheriff's department.
That allow us to bring all our resources to bear whenever state local and regional resources -- enough.
We're very proud of the relationship that we have here we're very happy that we are able to bring this to the Indian that we did thank you.
Let me just dead that the the FBI's.
Uses are normal procedure -- -- a shooting investigation up in Idaho.
And so there won't be any real details coming out of exactly what happened in the confrontation.
And I'm sure when their investigation is complete that will be those results will be released.
I want -- -- also what rob said about the type of relationships in the type of investigative work.
That was done here it's it's something that you rarely see I think on this level where you have federal and that's not just the FBI but the US Marshals Service.
Customs and Border Protection.
The Idaho state police the California Highway Patrol.
The sheriff's department in in in valley county in Ada county.
In Idaho and then the fugitive task force specifically here in San Diego County that left no stone in -- In trying to find -- and hand and bring them back so without a whole letter take up.
No we're not gonna discuss that.
Out of respect for for him -- privacy and her need.
To heal and and get through this tragedy.
She's and is back in San Diego she's with -- members and and she's.
-- doing as well it can be expected after the terrible ordeal she's been through.
No -- not not gonna discuss any motive or any of the specifics.
We're still the investigation is still ongoing.
And we have people interview crime scene as a result to examine.
And evidence to be reviewed that we recovered in the car up and Idaho and from the crime scene -- -- there.
I'm not gonna go any details about that you.
-- she was.
I can't make a clear she was a victim in this case she was not a willing participant and she was under extreme duress from the time she left boulevard for the time she was.
Recovered it -- -- Idaho.
No I mean that the -- report from the four hikers on horseback.
In Idaho was the key event.
Their tickets in that area letters to the discovery of the vehicle.
And then the subsequent discovery of them -- by -- more it.
As reported by the two.
Two couples that that saw along the trail they had backpacks they had supplies they took in with them although the -- The people from Idaho thought they were.
Not really prepared for the wilderness they were in up there in and I don't.
It's a -- to look at the of the size the complex.
There -- several buildings up there and she was unaware of what happened what that her mother and her brother had been that killed.
-- The FBI interview were in.
Forensic interviewer in Idaho.
Did the interview with her and and explain tour and revealed to her about her mother and brother's death.
I'm not gonna go any type of details on that but she was under duress the whole time.
The AMBER Alert had not been.
Put out in Idaho until after the before campers up there came across them on the came across them on the on the trail.
Subsequent that I think that would have been Thursday -- see amber was AMBER Alert was finally was released in Idaho we'd done -- in California Oregon and Washington.
Up into British Columbia.
But not in two Idaho.
We're still in the process of putting that.
All that investigative material together.
No I don't have the results of the crime scene investigation Idaho.
This being done probably still as we speak.
So what I do know from the interview -- he did -- rifle -- fired at least one shot.
Beyond that that would come out in the FBI's shooting team investigation they're doing up there.
If she was in the in the close proximity to.
The measure when he was shot and killed.
I don't know.
At the time -- proximity time.
Police one shot was fired possibly a second and he was shot and killed shortly thereafter.
As far as we know that that.
To my -- DiMaggio.
Fired his weapon first.
I don't know.
I don't know.
Guess that was his -- I don't know.
We're not ready to release the results of that.
I don't have that information sorry.
We've we've had that have reported to us what.
-- -- -- -- -- -- As the four hikers -- -- drove off.
I don't know -- I'm not sure we know what she meant by that if she was asked that specifically I have -- Heard those results.
I've not gonna discuss any details of her abduction be on the fact that she was under extreme -- That's right.
He was familiar that area of the country had been up there and -- So you know in and -- out.
I didn't say I was I didn't say it was planned I think that will come out as we do.
We don't think this was spur of the moment thing that I did not have prepared to going to.
-- this has been reported extensively in the media.
She was not a stranger to his house a lot of people would go over there so for her to go to -- residence was not -- usual.
It was after she arrived there that.
Some of these horrific crash took place.
Some not a matter of hours from the time they thought they -- the the -- from some aerial surveillance tell FBI teams were inserted into the area and and -- made there.
Way towards the camp site.
-- Not prepared to talk about that yet it's very.
Her mother I can't we can't tell you that.
Not that -- where.
Okay -- okay.
At work we're doing a lot of investigation remains to be done a lot of people interview.
Comparing what we learn interviews with the results of crime scene investigations and searches of of cars up in the I don't lawyers so -- a long way to go yet on this it determine exactly a timeline what happened why it happened as best we can't.
But that we might never know somebody's -- I think that's important to realize now.
When you get a complete the irrational act like we've seen here with two murders in the kidnapping.
Sometimes you're not going to be able to come up with a rational explanation of what happened.
Well I think everybody should gratified that we've we've obviously got handed back alive were said for the loss.
-- Cristina and and Ethan it's a tragedy.
But as far as.
As head of being recovered that's that was a good day for law enforcement.
All over the country so and I thank -- the media for all your help in in that helping us look here.
For that I will.
I I don't know.
I -- No idea.
I I think there will be ways that you know winning -- new technology there are always ways to improve it.
I think it it worked one of the things I've I'm aware of for my own alert that I got on my iPhone.
Is that the alert pops up and then after -- -- it.
It's gone so you can't just go back in like you would a text message and look at it again.
To determine what that -- never was if you see the car and I think those are some of the things are working on.
Two to make your retrieval when you in -- here your rightful -- your Smartphone.
-- that you think you see something you can refresh your memory of of what you saw.
For that thank you very much for being appreciated.
