Dorner truly dead, M.E. confirms rogue ex- cop’s remains

Christopher Dorner

(CNN) — Medical examiners have positively identified the body of the renegade former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner, the man authorities say killed four people and wounded three others in a vendetta against his old comrades.

That announcement from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department came two days after a shootout, standoff and fire at a cabin in the mountains east of Los Angeles. Dorner’s remains were identified through dental records during an autopsy, the department said.

The charred remains of a man believed to be Dorner were found in the burned-out cabin late Tuesday. The cause of death was not released with the identification.
