I think the guy might be dead already, by suicide.

His vehicle broke an axle, which was definitely not part of his escape plan.

He's on foot in snow country.

How can he not leave trackable footprints at 300 pounds?

He has to find shelter, and soon, or freeze to death.

There can only be a couple winter trails back down to the warmer valleys, so those are easily blocked off.

All the nearby homes have been searched.

Unless he managed to hijack another car, or hitched a ride with a sympathetic person, he's stuck outside in the snow.

Not necessarily. He may have bought a different vehicle, curbside, and towed it out to where he abandoned the truck. Axles can be broken, which would at least delay the time for the police to take it to forensics. A broken axle would also give him time to get away, because they would think he’s on foot, when he could clear across the country.

Also, with a simple change of clothes such as a plaid shirt and baseball cap, and he would be fairly unrecognizable to 90% of the population.

He’s shown himself to be highly intelligent, and with his naval training and police background, he can lay low for years on end, especially with some proper planning, like buying some rural property and stocking up on necessary supplies.

He can literally, for a number of years, keep himself isolated and choose his other targets at will. Also, assuming he’s still in the Los Angeles area, as a former cop, he would also know a number of unused and empty buildings to hide in.

Cops know how to break into houses. They have to be able to break in to find people who are sick/dying/can’t pick up the phone. I have seen them do it, they can break into a window without damaging it within a couple of minutes, usually under 90 seconds.

For sure Dorner knows: the area,
how to tell if a home is occupied;
how to break into a home.

And probably, Dorner knows how to tell if a house has a basement, and how to live in such basement unnoticed.

Yea, I initially thought the ditched vehicle was a decoy but now with the news that it had a broken axle, he might still be up there

And here's another thought, it's unlikely it broke on the highway so where was he "off roading"?

He’s an ice cube somewhere within 15 miles of where the truck was found, is my expectation.

They’ll find him in the Spring thaw dead in a ditch with bugs up his nose.
