Now the cops try to determine if burned body is Dorner
After having danced around the flaming cabin chanting burn, baby, burn, the remains had better be Dorner. The last thing the police need is a "Little Bohemia Lodge" up there in Big Bear.
Investigators will begin on Wednesday to determine whether charred human remains found in a burned-out cabin here are those of Christopher J. Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer sought in the region’s largest manhunt, who is believed to have been inside the cabin as it burned down around him after the authorities pinned him down inside.And if they got the right man, they closed it the way they wanted to from the beginning.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office said that identification of the remains “will be attempted through forensic means” — although investigators say there is little doubt they belong to Mr. Dorner.
As the authorities continued efforts to identify the remains found in the charred cabin, Lt. Andrew Neiman of the Los Angeles Police Department said Wednesday that the police were focusing on their homicide investigation, sifting through “over a thousand” clues, and noting that the police “don’t just stop a murder case because we think the suspect is no longer with us.”
“We have a case to close,” Lieutenant Neiman said in a briefing with reporters.
