An African-AmericanLAPD officer who is still on the force has reached out to ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner, confirming some of Dorner’saccusations of racism, and guiding Dorner on how best to turn himself in without being harmed.
Records provide new details on the alleged actions of Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, who is suspected of killing three people, including a police officer, and has eluded authorities since the night of Feb. 6 when he was publicly named as the suspect in the slaying of an Irvine couple.
Dorner may have been helped by an associate identified only as “JY” in the charging document that was filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles after the former police officer was suspected of fleeing from authorities.
Police say that Dorner has killed three people and injured others in a campaign to take revenge on those he blamed for his dismissal from the LAPD four years ago. Investigators are scrutinizing a conspiracy-laden manifesto published on what they believe was Dorner’s Facebook page. The screed threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against police officers and their families, saying that Dorner has no choice but to kill to reclaim his damaged reputation.
Elected officials and law enforcement authorities on Sunday are expected to offer a $1-million reward for information leading to the arrest and capture of fugitive ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner.
A massive manhunt for Dorner began last week after the 33-year-old former Los Angeles police officer and Navy veteran allegedly began a deadly campaign that has left three people dead and two others injured. Dorner is believed to be upset over his firing from the department in 2009.
Beck said he was reopening the investigation “not to appease a murderer” but to assure the public his department is fair and transparent. He said he wanted to protect an “increasingly positive relationship with the community” that the LAPD has developed over the last few years.
