SAN DIEGO - Police and federal agents in Southern California widened their manhunt on Wednesday for a computer technician who is suspected in the slaying of a longtime friend, the disappearance of her two children and the arson fire of his own home.

The fugitive, James Lee DiMaggio, 40, had been a close family friend of Christina Anderson for two decades and was "like an uncle" to her children, said Lieutenant Glenn Giannantonio, the homicide detective overseeing the case for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators have no evidence of a precipitating incident or circumstances that might have led to the crimes DiMaggio is suspected of committing, the detective said on Wednesday.
