Investigators have reportedly found Christopher Dorner’s wallet beside charred human remains at the forest cabin where he made a last stand, giving California police some peace of mind as they prepared to bury their dead.
Scientists examined the remains on Wednesday to confirm they belonged to the fugitive who waged a bloody vendetta against law enforcement officers and their families.
The Los Angeles police department stood down from high alert and withdrew protection from most, though not all, of the officers believed to have been on Dorner’s hit list. He is believed to have killed four people and wounded three.
Christopher Jordan Dorner was on the run for six days, and stands accused of four murders during that same period period. His most recent victim, an unidentified San Bernardino Sheriff’s deputy, died after exchanging gunfire with Dorner at the Big Bear cabin on Tuesday. The deputy’s partner remains in the hospital at this time, but is expected to make a full recovery.
