1. MANHUNT

    Police: Remains May Be Dorner’s

    Fired Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer Christopher Dorner is seen in an undated photo displayed at a press conference by Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck (not in photo) regarding the manhunt for Dorner, at LADP headquarters in Los Angeles February 7, 2013. Los Angeles police launched a full-scale manhunt for Dorner, a dismissed officer believed to have killed three people including another cop. Christopher Jordan Dorner had posted a chilling online warning about "terminating" the life of a collegue he blamed for his dismissal, and threatening other police and their families.

    San Bernardino, California, police said early Wednesday that they are working to confirm the identity of the remains found in the burned-out cabin where fugitive Richard Dorner was believed to be holed up. Dorner, a former Los Angeles cop, had terrorized Southern California for the past week since he went missing after killing an engaged couple and a police officer. On Tuesday, two maids in the Big Bear area stumbled across a man resembling Dorner, and he then allegedly tied them up, took a car from the residence, and attempted to flee. Police recognized him, leading to a shootout and resulting in the death of one officer and wounding of another. The fugitive stayed in the cabin, and it went up in flames as officers surrounded it.
