On Feb. 7, 2013, police attempted to locate murder suspect Christopher Dorner by following tracks in the snow leading from his burning truck left in Big Bear, Calif. on the side of Bear Mountain.
The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Dept. said in a news conference Thursday the tracks did not lead to Dorner, a former LAPD officer and Navy Reservist.
Several law enforcement agencies continue to search near Big Bear Lake for Dorner using a team of dogs. They are also going door to door, according to ABC News.
San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon told reporters, “He could be anywhere, at this point, and that’s why we’re searching door to door.”
Dorner is accused of murdering women’s college basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiancé Keith Lawrence on Feb. 3 as they sat in Lawrence’s white Kia in the parking lot of their Irvine condo complex.
He is also suspected of killing a police officer in Riverside on Feb. 7 when he encountered a police cruiser after fleeing from LAPD officers in Corona.
Prior to the killings, Dorner posted a manifesto online that threatened at least 12 people and their families. In it, he appears to blame Monica Quan’s father—retired LAPD Capt. Randy Quan—for his termination from the LAPD.
After retiring from the force, Randy Quan became an attorney and represented Dorner before a police tribunal after he was accused of making false statements about his field-training officer. Dorner had filed a complaint saying she had kicked a mentally ill suspect during an arrest. The board ruled against him and Dorner was terminated after three years on the force.
Dorner’s manifesto reads in part, “I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty.”
Dorner is described by the LAPD as black, 6-feet tall, and about 270 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
