Dorner Reward Loophole - Many people are fighting for their share of the Christopher Dorner reward money; however, due to a loophole they may be left with nothing. The ex-Los Angeles police officer allegedly murdered four people in a killing spree across Southern California.

The Associated Press previously reported that Los Angeles officials were offering a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Dorner. But the most-wanted man in America was likely killed in a cabin fire on Tuesday after engaging in a firefight with San Bernadino County Sheriff’s deputies in the Big Bear resort area, east of L.A.

Since then Dorner has been positively identified as the victim to the cabin fire.

“The charred human remains located in the burned out cabin in Seven Oaks have been positively identified to be that of Christopher Dorner,” the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office said in a written statement. “During the autopsy, positive identification was made through dental examination.”

According to authorities over 1,000 tips were received during the manhunt for Dorner who declared war on his fellow law enforcement members.

“We did not intentionally burn down that cabin to get Mr. Dorner out,” San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon told reporters Wednesday evening, although he noted that pyrotechnic canisters known as “burners” were fired into the cabin during a tear-gas assault in an effort to flush out Dorner.
