Autopsy: Renegade ex-cop Dorner died from single gunshot to head

Autopsy results on Christopher Dorner, the renegade former Los Angeles cop who authorities said killed four people and wounded three others, show he died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Capt. Kevin Lacy, the San Bernardino County, California, coroner, said that authorities have not yet ruled on Dorner's manner of death.

However, information collected so far seems to suggest he took his own life.

"While we're still compiling the information and putting our reports together, the information that we have right now seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner's life was self-inflicted," Lacy told reporters.

    Guess now he won't get his unemployment compensation check, will he?

    I still say an outside agency should be doing any and all investigation on this case!

      chrissy: Exactly! WHO in their right mind thinks that "we will investigate ourselves", is going to accomplish anything?
