Body in burned cabin identified as Christopher Dorner's2/15/2013
Officials say burned remains found in a California mountain cabin have been positively identified as fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner. Dental records were used to make the match, and the cause of death has not been announced. The search for Dorner began last week after authorities said he had launched a deadly revenge campaign against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing, warning that he would bring "warfare" to LAPD officers and their families. The manhunt brought police to Big Bear Lake, 80 miles east of Los Angeles. After chasing him down to a cabin, police and Dorner engaged in a firefight in which one San Bernadino County Sheriff's deputy was killed and another injured. Following the shootout, the cabin was engulfed in flames. The source of the fire has been an issue of controversy, as police lobbed tear gas into the building shortly before the fire broke out.
