The search for Christopher Dorner is officially over.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department has released a statement that confirms the ex-LAPD officer was shot and killed by police on Tuesday during a standoff in Big Bear, CA. It reads:

“The charred human remains located in the burned out cabin in Seven Oaks have been positively identified to be that of Christopher Dorner.”


Authorities had been after Dorner for days after he allegedly murdered three people earlier in the month and also posted messages on Facebook that threatened the lives of other police officers and their families.

Dorner’s corpse was identified through his dental records.
