” A cabin where a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer was believed to have barricaded himself burned to the ground Tuesday night and Los Angeles police believe Christopher Dorner is dead, according to media reports.
A charred body was recovered from the ruins, and KTLA television reported that Los Angeles police said they believed it was that of Dorner.
A source in Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s office told NBC News that the police department had confirmed to the mayor that the body was Dorner’s.
Dorner had been on the run since they say he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.”
