Remains Found In LA Ex-Cop Manhunt, ID Pending [VIDEO]

LAPD Revenge Killings

The charred remains of a body have been found inside a cabin where police say they believe an ex-LAPD officer turned murder suspect barricaded himself. The AP is reporting that Christopher Dorner’s driver’s license was found in the burned cabin, but the body has yet to be identified.

FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal reports from Los Angeles:

Audio clip:

A man matching Christopher Dorner’s description stole a car in the San Bernardino Mountains. He crashed that car, and then carjacked a man’s truck. Law enforcement followed him as he fled into a cabin, after which he exchanged gunfire with deputies. One officer was hurt, another killed. Officers pumped tear gas inside, but the cabin burst into flames.

(Bachman) “The victims of the car theft said that the suspect that stole their car looked like him and his actions after stealing the vehicle lead us to believe even stronger that it was him.”

That’s sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman. Now the forensic work begins to positively identify the body.
