While she tries to put on a brave face in school, Hannah Anderson says that when she thinks about her abduction and her struggles to cope with the murders of her mother and brother, "I break down at night."
The San Diego-area high-school junior, 16, continues to avoid all print interviews, but over the past few days has answered dozens of questions on her ask.fm page, where she also shared photos of her homecoming dance and happier times with her mom and brother.
Asked why she didn't run away from abductor James DiMaggio while on the 1,000-mile trip from San Diego to Idaho – the query also presumed that Anderson wasn't handcuffed – Anderson replied: "How do you know he never had me handcuffed? Because there you are wrong. Don't assume things you don't know. Just stop."
