LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) The Los Angeles Police Department Tuesday said three parties will split the $1 million reward offered during the manhunt for rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner.
In a document posted online, the department said a three-judge panel decided 80 percent of the money will go to Jim and Karen Reynolds, the couple who managed to call 911 after they were tied up by Dorner at their Big Bear condo.
Fifteen percent of the reward will go to ski resort employee Daniel McGowan, who found Dorners burned-out pickup truck on the side of a remote Big Bear Lake road, and 5 percent will go to R. Lee McDaniel, a tow truck driver who spotted Dorner at an am/pm in Corona Feb. 7.
Nine others who applied for the reward were denied, including Rick Heltebrake, the camp ranger carjacked by Dorner after the fugitive fled the Reynolds cabin.
The panel said Heltebrakes information came after officers were already engaged with Dorner.
Dorner killed four people, including two cops, during a vengeful rampage before he committed suicide Feb. 12 in a standoff with officers.
After California taxes, it’ll be like 9 bucks.
I guess we don’t have all the details, but the guy who saw the TRUCK got 15% and the guy who saw DORNER got 5%?
I guess they had a change of hear because they weren’t gonna pay!
I’m astonished that they are making any payout. I figured they’d screw ‘em on the technicality that the information did not lead to his arrest and conviction.
...and ninety percent will go to the lawyers who argued the case.
Who pays for the truck that the police turned into swiss cheese with bullets when they mistook two woman for Dorner?
