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.
The maid should get all the money.
There was NEVER an intended payout. I believe their orders were..."Kill on sight".
Nobody gets any reward, and that was how they had it planned.
The reward was offered for info leading to arrest and conviction, and they knew that they were not going to allow him to live and blab out the facts in court.
It certainly looks like they never wanted him alive
It was obvious from the very beginning.
That’s easy, me.
It is a subspecies of Contract Law.
The answer is in there somewhere.
She'll get all the reward money that's paid out ;-)
Please see Post 4
It was your idea to use the “burners”?
Dorner was not arrested or convicted, so they are not going to pay the reward.
Give it to the guy who said,
“Burn the M******-F***er Down!”
He’s a hero among the shiny-boot Freepers.
The lady whom the shooter tied up. She managed to make the call that brought the full force of LE to bear.
You are johnny-on-the-spot right...there was never any plan or intention for Dorner to do a “perp walk”.
There were no “maids”.
It was a couple who went in to do some re-modeling on the cabin and surprised Dorner...
That's a good idea but maybe better would be to the families of those this maggot killed.
The guy that shot the Waco Tear Gas Canister, that’s who. He must have used the same type of ‘hot’ canister that the FBI, or the US Military Advisors, or the ATF, or the IRS or the CIA, or the DEA, or whoever fired them off at Waco - I never really did hear any agency take credit for that fine, fine act that resulted in the deaths of dozens and dozens of men, women and children. Contratulations whoever you were, you should be right proud of your fine self /s
At least they could use some of it to rebuild the guys cabin they torched.
