The discovery of a man who police believe to be Christopher Dorner began when two maids ran into him Tuesday morning as they arrived to clean a vacant cabin in the Big Bear area near where the fugitive ex-cop’s car was set ablaze last week.

The two maids entered a cabin in the 1200 block of Club View Drive, close to Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Resort, and surprised a man who they said resembled the fugitive, a law enforcement official said. The man tied up the maids, and then took off in a purple Nissan parked near the cabin, authorities said.

One of the maids was eventually able to break free and called 911 at 12:20 p.m., officials said

They don’t burn if you plant them after the fire is out...

This abbreviated article says nothing about Dorner with an assault rife pointed at the driver of the light colored pickup truck. He had a Dalmatian dog too.

A leather wallet is surprisingly fire resistant.

Fireproof DL’s all the rage in Cali!

Not only that but it was mighty convenient for someone to hear a single gunshot before the fire.

I think there is a “loophole” and nobody’s getting the million. Just like a liberal state—promis crap and then can’t deliver.

Some other reports said that he held 2 people (man and wife/woman) hostage. Then, he left in their vehicle. The man managed to free himself and call 911, which altered LEO’s that the perp was in that area.

[Not sure of the timeline for the above was. We have to cut-and-paste details from various sources during these kinds of events, so ‘details’ at any time may not be accurate.]

You're not going to let facts interfere with a good story are you?

That was my thought as well (and still is).

I have an old CA DL, from 1999, and unless they’ve changed them pretty radically over the intervening decade and a half, I really don’t think it would survive a major fire.

If so, I want to know what kind of material they’re making CA DL’s from! That’s impressive stuff!

The reward was for arrest and conviction. He will never be convicted.

On February 7th 2013, Christopher Dorner’s wallet and badge were recovered near San Diego International Airport and turned over to the police.

BADGE?! He was formally fired in 2009. Do they allow you to keep your badge after you’re canned from the LAPD?

OK, maybe it was a replica badge. You can find those online.

Well, they say they found the body in the basement, so that area may have been somewhat protected from the brunt of the fire.

I knew someone would catch that — and it had to be U.

BTW it’s appropriate because they still have not declared him Dead.

So he still is Live 4 now — but that remains to be seen, or should I say, those remains need to be seen.

I didn’t “fall for it”. I thought CNN must have run the wrong headline for a minute or something when I saw the screen capture.
