The husband and wife who say they surprised Christopher Dorner in their home, hours before he was killed in a dramatic standoff, described their terror as he bound their hands and feet. Jim and Karen Reynolds say they came to the home just before noon on Tuesday to find the fugitive had been staying in an upstairs room.
Mrs Reynolds said that Dorner seemed 'calm and methodical' when he approached them, but her first instinct when she saw him was to run away - and Dorner chased after her.
She tried to run up the stairs but was quickly caught by Dorner, who dragged her away.
Mr Reynolds said that after first trying to keep them calm, Dorner tied up their hands and feet with zip ties before stuffing washcloths in their mouths.
He then covered their faces with pillowcases and wrapped electrical cords around their heads.
'I really thought it could be the end,' she told reporters on Wednesday night.
The Reynolds said that despite early reports, it was them - and not their housekeepers - who had encountered Dorner in the home.
They said that he tried to keep them calm and told them repeatedly that he was not going to kill them. Mr Reynolds, who has been married to Karen for 36 years, added: 'He said he just wanted to clear his name.'
Mrs Reynolds added: 'He said he needed transportation out of big bear. He continued to say to us quite frequently he would not kill us and just asked us to do what he asked.
'He knelt down beside me and said "you're going to be quiet, right?"'

Oh good grief. I knew I should have given up the Internet for Lent. 30 days without idiots would have been nice.
The real heroes are the seven LAPD cops who pumped the lead into the back of the newspaper delivery ladies' truck without first identifying their target or giving a warning and the Torrance cop who rammed the side of the surfer's truck, then pumped three rounds into the windshield after he'd just been pulled over, checked and released.
This is the brave lot you should be cheering.
Truth? Where's the proof that A) this phone call was actually made and B) that Dorner was the one who made it?
Now the folks from the “Wicker Man” festival are offering him big bucks because it’s really hard to find a big celebrity crowd pleaser with experience to do a repeat performance.
Read his manifesto.
He said he was going to go after the families of the officers he had a disagreement with.
And he did.
The lady he shot was the daughter of one of the officers he had a problem with.
His manifesto is rather revealing.
Made him combustively angry apparently!
“Stupid” = “Quadruple Killer?”
OK, Dorner was stupid, stupid, stupid and stupid.
An M-14 is not a semi-automatic weapon. Is has full auto capacity. If it was in fact a “battle rifle” the article is inaccurate on that point. However, it was not referred to as a assault rifle which a M-14 is.
I read his manifesto.
Quite a bit of mind sominex in there.
But rather revealing.
When it was Dorner vs LAPD it was badguy on badguy violence.
LAPD showed they were incapable of finding, containing, or stopping him.
Heck, he’d probably still be alive if he had stayed in LA proper.
Yes, Dorner was stupid, not everyone else unless they do, say or write something stupid.
The Brits have been known to evacuate a whole city block because somebody found a live round...of 22LR.
Now they're not laughing. They're whining.
Fair enough. Darks was just pointing out that murdering four people (one of whom was not a cop) is a pretty stupid way to “clear your name.” It’s a bit of a Duh.
He was 6’2” and weighted 270 pounds. I think PEDs may have been part of his daily routine. Didn’t anyone in LAPD take notice of
And there are people insisting that stating truthfully that there are people whining over Dorner are conflating things.
No, there really are people whining over Dorner.
I was tempted to post a thread “Before you cry in your beer over Dorner, consider what the law says about the authorization of deadly force and when it is authorized.”
It is authorized for use when someone is fleeing a rape, murder etc.
Also authorized when someone is shooting at you but let’s not get real picky.
