Charred remains in burned home confirmed as Dorner’s

Dorner

LOS ANGELES (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.

The department said Dorner’s remains were identified through dental records during an autopsy.

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.
