DORNER IS DEAD: Confirmed ID of Charred Remains Made in Autopsy

Authorities believe Christopher Dorner is accountable for four killings in the space of ten days, from Irvine to Riverside and the San Bernardino Mountains.

Charred human remains found in a burned out cabin in Seven Oaks east of Angelus Oaks have been positively identified as the remains of quadruple-murder suspect and rogue ex-LAPD cop Christopher Dorner, the San Bernardino County sheriff's department announced Thursday afternoon.

During an autopsy, positive identification was made through a dental examination, sheriff's officials said in a statement.

Authorities believe Dorner is accountable for four killings in the space of ten days: a former LAPD captain's daughter and her fiancé in Irvine on Feb. 3, Riverside police Officer Michael Crain on Feb. 7, and San Bernardino County sheriff's Detective Jeremiah MacKay on Feb. 12.

If you have never had, or been in a house fire you would not understand the stuff that survives. On top of my dresser when my home burned to the ground were three books, a jewelry box and some glass brick brack. Dresser gone, clothes inside gone, jewelry box gone, some of the stuff in box melted, glass shatter but the three books were only burned on edges.

@ desert dummy I was pregnant in bed and almost lost my child and I collected NOTHING as I was renting and too young/dumb to know about renters insurance. The fire started in duplex next door.
