Medical examiners have confirmed that the charred body found in a cabin near Big Bear Lake, California, is that of Christopher Dorner, the rogue ex-cop wanted in a string of killings around the Los Angeles area, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department announced Thursday.
Identification was made through dental records, sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller said. The cause of death wasn't immediately released.
Police say they tracked Dorner to a cabin south of Big Bear Lake, California, on Tuesday, leading to a shootout that killed one deputy. A SWAT team eventually stormed the cabin Tuesday evening, leading to a fire in which authorities now say Dorner died.
Authorities say Dorner launched a guerrilla war against the Los Angeles Police Department over what he considered his unfair dismissal in 2009. Police say they believe Dorner killed four people – including two law enforcement officers – since February 3.
This is over. Done, finis! Nothing more.
Years ago I visited Los Angeles. Buena Park, Hollywood, Newport Beach and others and never seen anything like this. I don't get it.
White. Correct? OMG I'M PSYCHIC!!!
And a lot of crooked LA cops and LA political bigshots can rest easy again, knowing that "Dead men tell no tales".
PD said they used incendiary smoke grenades...
LOOK UP THE WORD: "INCENDIARY"
This story is a hoax.
Im still wondering how several days ago the LAPD stated they had found his wallet and license at a marina near some boats and now they say they found it in a burned out cabin in the mountains. Did it just fly there? Were they lying the 1st time? Were they lying the 2nd time??
How easy is it to get a a duplicate or even fake ID? If the dude had all the supplies they said he had...he certainly had a bunch of ID'S! Think so?
They said they found his badge and ID, try facts,
OR have they been lying all along? Too many things just arent adding up.
To EVERYONE happy valentines day.
Who got the Million Dollar Reward???
Cruz you know the cops didn't find him all by themselves.
Nobody does. He wasn't convicted.
Great way to save a million.
Make sure you don't take him alive.
Burn the place down.
Now its pyrotechnic tear gas. Nice spin, they stopped using the word incendiary.
Pyrotechnic sounds like Disney land...lol
Read about obamaha mind control torture which is done in america and pople are labled scizopherinic
Fat murderer jumped out of the frying pan into the fire.
Y'all wanted to spend your tax dollars feeding that cow for 50 years? I'll bet he ate about 20 Big Macs each day.
Cop killer didn't even have the guts to face a trial so he shot himself. What a wuss.
I think Dorner did the right thing trying to kill the LAPD who framed him
The scary part is every crime LAPD is accusing Dorner of doing, LAPD and other large city PD do on a regular basis. We have the highest incarcenation rate in the world. Law Enfocement and prison has become a big money business at the expense of the poorest, weakest, and the most vulnerable members of our society. There are plenty of honest cops out there, but by keeping silent and allowing corruption and brutality to hide behind their bagdges, all cops are accomplice according to how they define and procescute accomplices for the rest of us.
