Dorner Manhunt: City Officials Remember the Victims of Dorner’s Killing Spree

While authorities believe alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner did not survive a cabin blaze Tuesday, Glendora city officials honor Dorner’s victims.

As authorities believe the deadly rampage of alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner has ended in a burnt out cabin near Big Bear, Glendora city council members asked the public to remember the victims killed in Dorner’s violent spree.

Tuesday’s City Council meeting closed in memory of the four people Dorner is accused of killing – civilians Monica Quan and her fiance Keith Lawrence, Riverside officer Michael Crain and an unidentified San Bernardino deputy killed in Tuesday’s shootout.

Councilmember Karen Davis urged the public to remember “the risk and sacrifice by all those in uniform on a daily basis.”

Mayor Pro Tem Joe Santoro thanked the “many officers in our region who have searched diligently for this killer.”

I think the duties that they have put forth has been amazing and to know that we have people out there who every single day, 24 hours a day, protect people… I don’t think we can express enough gratitude to them for their work,” Santoro said.

There are reports charred remains were found in the cabin where gunfire was exchanged between authorities and a man suspected to be Dorner Tuesday, although a positive ID on the remains has not yet been made.

The nation was riveted as Dorner, 33, managed to elude police for several days despite a massive dragnet that stretched from Los Angeles County to Northern Mexico to Arizona.  

, were placed on high alert after a long rambling online manifesto which rages against the LAPD and virtually every individual in uniform, ultimately vowing to take revenge for his termination from the LAPD in 2009, was made public.

The first of Dorner’s alleged victims were 28-year-old Quan, a Cal State Fullerton assistant women’s basketball, and her fiance Lawrence, 27. Both were killed in the parking structure of their Irvine condominium complex Feb. 3. Quan was the daughter of Randy Quan, an attorney who represented Dorner in his failed appeal of his dismissal to the Board of Rights.

Dorner is also believed to have killed Riverside Officer Michael Crain when he ambushed Crain and another officer as they were stopped at a Riverside traffic light Feb. 7. The other officer survived the attack.

Law enforcement agencies scoured the Big Bear area looking for Dorner after his burned out truck was found in the forest, but initial searches yielded nothing. Growing desperate, a $1 million reward was offered for information leading to Dorner’s arrest. Hundreds of tips all over the Southland poured in, but no credible leads were established.

Finally, on Tuesday at around noon, authorities were hot on the trail of a man believed to be Dorner who fired shots at deputies in a remote area near Big Bear. Two San Bernardino deputies were wounded in the gunfire, while one perished from his injuries at a Loma Linda medical center.

The cabin Dorner is believed to have barricaded himself in Tuesday went up in flames during the standoff. Authorities believe the charred remains found in the cabin is Dorner.

That is too bad the poice that were killed weren't even LAPD the ones that started all this. They were the corrupt ones who should have been shot at. I'm sorry but that is the way I feel. Dorner never did hurt any civilians he was after the ones who wronged him..

Marcheta, I can't believe you would say such a thing! Are you saying that you wish it was someone from LAPD that was killed? NO LIFE -- civilian or law enforcement should have been taken...period. What a horrible thing for you to say! You don't even know all the details and you are already saying the LAPD "started this and they are the corrupt ones". Shame on you! You also say he didn't hurt any "civilians". Quan and Lawrence were civilians who were just getting ready to begin their life as husband and wife. Are you saying they deserve to die because Quan's father was the lawyer representing Dorner? I still can't believe someone like you would say something so terrible. I'm sure you'll reconsider if and when you ever need law enforcement's help in an emergency. Again, shame on you for saying such ignorant and hurtful things. God bless our law enforcement for all they do in keeping the rest of us safe.

You are totally nuts, Marcheta. That psychopath gunned down an unarmed woman and her fiancee who had nothing to do with his being fired. Nothing. He then ambushed and killed a Riverside PD for no good reason. Then he kills a SBPD cop in Big Bear. None of these people were responsible for his problems. He didn't care, he just wanted to kill. You must be one of those "compassionate" Liberals that I keep hearing about.

People like you should be taken out and left on an island with scum like Dorner, I'm sure you'd be happy. Dorner murdered two innocent civilians so either you can't read, are wasted or too stupid to post. Take your pick.
