The hunt for the fugitive ex-L.A. cop has ended, according to new reports out Tuesday night. The evening has been filled with updates and developments, and CNN shared the latest news on Feb. 12. Christopher Dorner's body has apparently been found in the Big Bear cabin that burned to the ground in San Bernardino National Forest.
Monday evening, reports indicated that Christopher Dorner was barricaded in a burning Big Bear cabin after he had shot at deputies earlier in the day. One deputy was injured while the other was killed. Dorner was holding police at bay, but then the cabin was engulfed in flames. Now police indicate that the fugitive ex-L.A. cop is dead and his body has been recovered.
The nation has been watching the manhunt for Christopher Dorner since he has been on the run. In addition to the deputy shootings Monday, Dorner is tied to the slayings of a former police captain's daughter and her fiance, and an ambush on police as he tried to flee to Mexico. Dorner's bizarre Facebook rant and determined efforts to evade capture captivated the country for days. Now it seems the hunt is over, but there will never be solid answers as to why these killings occurred or what drove Dorner's bizarre meltdown.
KSBW notes that Christopher Dorner never emerged from the Big Bear cabin as it burned. A single shot was heard coming from inside the cabin before the fire spread. The fugitive ex-L.A. cop left a path of heartbreak and destruction in his wake, but the saga has now ended.
