James DiMaggio — the man accused of kidnapping San Diego County teenager Hannah Anderson after killing her mother and brother — died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head, chest and extremities, an Idaho coroner confirmed Tuesday.

DiMaggio, 40, died after he was shot six times, Valley County coroner Nathan Hess said.

Hess said the final autopsy report was not complete because the toxicology results had not come back — he said he expected them “any day” — but said the cause of death would not change.

“Even if the toxicology came back positive, it’s not going to change the fact that the cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds,” he said.

The manner of death was listed as homicide, Hess said.
