Christina Anderson, 44, died of blunt force to the head, according to the San Diego Medical Examiner’s Office, reports the Associated Press. 

Joe DiMaggio, 40, is suspected of killing Anderson and her 8-year-old son at their California home before kidnapping her 16-year-old daughter, Hannah. A nearly week-long hunt ensued for DiMaggio and his captive, ending in DiMaggio’s death and the girl’s rescue.

The house was lit on fire. A crowbar was found near Christina Anderson’s body, a search warrant released last week revealed, according to San Diego 6 News. The cause of her son’s death has not been disclosed.
