How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Sister of Kidnapping, Murder Suspect Files Claim Against FBI for Killing Brother

The sister of a man killed in the Idaho wilderness after authorities said he abducted a 16-year-old girl and killer her relatives is suing the FBI for $20 million, saying her brother never got a fair trial, the Associated Press reports. 

The attorney of Lori DiMaggio Robinson filed a claim with the FBI Thursday and plans to soon file suit.

“We need a lot more information,” attorney C. Keith Gree said. “We need to know why the officers felt like they were being targeted and to find out if they truly were in harm’s way.”

James DiMaggio, 40, was killed in August 2013 after triggering a massive manhunt.

He was shot six times after the FBI said he fired rifle shots as a rescue attempt was underway.

“The FBI agents’ unprivileged use of force therefore constitutes an assault and battery against DiMaggio, leading to DiMaggio’s wrongful death under Idaho law,” attorneys stated in the claim. “None of the agents present sought to intervene to prevent the excessive force, though able.”
