BOISE, ID - An Idaho coroner says a kidnapping suspect that lead police on a manhunt all over the Pacific Northwest died after being hit by six gunshots.

The Valley County Coroner said James Lee DiMaggio was killed by gunshots fired by FBI agents during a rescue operation in the wilderness back in August. 

The coroner confirmed Tuesday that the multiple gunshot wounds to DiMaggio's head, chest and extremities were the cause of death of the 40-year-old California man.

DiMaggio died August 10 after his campsite was spotted in the vast Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

He became the focus of a massive manhunt for allegedly abducting 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and killing her brother Ethan and her mother Christina at DiMaggio's home about 65 miles east of San Diego. Hannah Anderson was rescued.

The final autopsy is pending a toxicology report. The death has also been classified as a homicide.
