California murder suspect James DiMaggio may have dumped his car in a remote area of Idaho, CNN reports. Sheriff's deputies say they found a vehicle in Cascade, Idaho, matching a car linked to DiMaggio—presumably the blue Nissan Versa authorities warned about yesterday. No word on what's inside the car, though, or whether it was rigged with explosives as authorities had feared. San Diego authorities searching DiMaggio's burned-out house, where two bodies were found, seem to fear the worst.

"We have a heightened concern that's based on the evidence we have been collecting at the scene all week long," said San Diego Sheriff's Department Capt. Duncan Fraser. "We think that he's capable of anything at this point." Fraser added that the kidnapping of Hannah Anderson, 16, was a "very well-planned event." (More James DiMaggio stories.)
