LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) If Christopher Dorner is dead, who will get the $1.1 million reward that was being offered for his arrest? Officials say its complicated.
Randy Paige, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, says the language used was a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
There will be no arrest. And no conviction. So does Los Angeles have to pay up? And if so, to whom?
LA Councilman Dennis Zine is one of three council members who called on the city to offer $100,000. (The additional money came from other municipalities, organizations and private donations.)
Says Zine, Is it the arrest and conviction? Is it the ability to locate the individual who is wanted? Theres a lot of factors. Its going to be up to the legal experts to make that determination.
He believes it is unclear if the terms of the reward have been met.
We may have a lot of people file a claim. I made a 911 call, I thought he was in the mountains, whatever. So thats all going to be a process. Its not going to happen overnight but were obligated to follow the rule and the rule is if that follows what the boundaries are then that reward will be paid.
Who will decipher if arrest and conviction is followed to the letter? Says Zine, Thats going to be up to the legal experts to make that determination.
Richard Heltebrake, the man whose vehicle was allegedly carjacked by Dorner before he got into a shootout with San Bernardino deputies, told CBS2 and KCAL9 reporter Stacey Butler that he was absolutely going to pursue the $1 million.
Some of it will go toward urban renewal for the burned out cabin.
It should be distributed in trust to the children of those he killed.
There never was a MAID. The couple were the homeowners. On the other hand, the wife probably is a maid.
Thank you. It was gettig on my last ragged nerve thay no one was getting the story right.
Give it to the owner of the “M******-F***er” cabin the jack-booted thugs burned down.
Amendment VI, much like Amendment II... completely optional at the discretion of The State.
