SAN DIEGO (AP) - Kidnapping survivor Hannah Anderson will describe her ordeal on NBC's "Today" show, including how her family's friend-turned-captor handcuffed her and made her play a game of Russian roulette.
In an interview airing Thursday, the San Diego-area teen says James Lee DiMaggio used zip ties to bind her feet and then told her he was going to take her to Idaho to help him settle there before releasing her.
She says he forced her to play Russian roulette on his couch before forcing her into his car. He then rigged his home to burn. The remains of her mother and brother were found inside later.
The 16-year-old says DiMaggio told her they were alive.
FBI agents fatally shot DiMaggio and rescued Anderson in Idaho on Aug. 10 after a weeklong manhunt.
