Sheriff's Office: Remains Found In California Cabin

Posted: Updated:

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - A sheriff's spokeswoman says charred human remains have been found in the burned-out cabin where a fugitive former Los Angeles police officer was believed to be.
    
San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller says the remains were found late Tuesday after a shootout that killed one sheriff's deputy and injured another. Authorities believe Christopher Dorner barricaded himself inside the cabin and a fire later ensued.
    
Investigators will attempt to determine if the remains are Dorner's through forensic tests.
    
Thousands of officers had been on the hunt for the former Navy reservist since police said he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.
    
Police had been searching the snow-covered woods near Big Bear Lake, a resort town about 80 miles east of Los Angeles, after Dorner's truck was found late last week.
