Body In California Cabin Is Positively Identified As Ex-Cop Christopher Dorner

The San Bernardino sheriff said today that the charred body found in a cabin at the Big Bear mountain resort was that of alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner, the AP reports.

USA Today adds that the sheriff said the remains were positively identified using dental records.

Dorner, who was fired from the Los Angeles Police Department in 2009, had threatened many current police officers in an online manifesto. He's suspected of killing four people — two of them police officers — during a crime spree that led to a massive multi-state manhunt.
