Manhunt continues for former LA officer
LOS ANGELES—The manhunt continues for a former Los Angeles officer who went on a murderous rampage last week.
The mayor of LA is asking 33-year-old Christopher Dorner to turn himself in.
Mayor Antonio Vaillaraigosa said, “Turn yourself in. Turn yourself in because we will find you. You have disgraced the public safety, the police profession. Turn yourself in.”
Dorner’s burned out truck was found near Big Bear Lake Resort in California.
Police continue to search the area for him but snow is making it difficult.
Dorner is suspected in the shooting deaths of a police officer, a university security officer and his fiancé, who is the daughter of a retired Los Angeles police captain.
The captain was named in Dorner’s online manifesto, declaring war on people he believes to be responsible for his dismissal from the police department in 2008.
The mayor says they are doing everything they can to capture Dorner.
Mayor Antonio Vaillaraigosa said, “He’s obviously very skilled. He is sick and deranged as we can see by the cold-blooded nature of these killings.”
Saturday, SWAT teams used armored vehicles and snow cats to follow tracks away from Dorner’s truck.
Unfortunately, those tracks turned out be from cross-country skiers.
