Suspect’s license found in burned cabin



BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — A California driver’s license naming Christopher Dorner was found in the burned cabin with the body believed to be Dorner.
The suspected revenge-seeking ex-cop was holed up in a vacation cabin.
It was there that Dorner apparently took refuge last Thursday, four days after beginning a deadly rampage that would claim four lives.
The search ended Tuesday when a man believed to be Dorner bolted from hiding, stole two cars, barricaded himself in a vacant cabin and mounted a last stand in a furious shootout in which he killed one sheriff’s deputy and wounded another before the building erupted in flames.
He never emerged from the ruins and hours later a charred body was found in the basement of the burned cabin along with a wallet and personal items, including the driver’s license with this name. an official said this morning.
Authorities believe the remains are those of the former Los Angeles police officer, but they have not been formally identified.
“We have reason to believe that it is him,” San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman said.
Dorner, 33, had said in a lengthy rant police believe he posted on Facebook that he expected to die in one final, violent confrontation with police.
