Legal Loophole Could Hold Up $1Million Chris Dorner Reward
A legal loophole could prevent good Samaritans, instrumental in ending the manhunt for a fugitive ex-cop accused of killing four people, from claiming more than $1 million in reward money because Christopher Dorner died and was not captured.
Last weekend, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pledged $1 million, sourced from private individuals, companies and unions, "for information that will lead to Mr. Dorner's capture."
The L.A. City Council followed up with its own promise of a $100,000 reward, for information "leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of Christopher Dorner."
But Dorner, accused of killing four people and threatening the lives of several dozen more, was never captured, apprehended or convicted. Instead, he died following a standoff with police near Big Bear, Calif., when the cabin in which he was barricaded burned down with him inside.
The mayor's office has not yet determined if the reward could still be paid out given Dorner died.
OBVIOUSLY these individuals should get the reward money.

4. This was obvious from the begining.
The reward didn't say it would be paid if he was killed specifically because they were planning on killing him on the spot and didn't want to pay it. There were a lot of people on the internet pointing it out the minute the reward was offered.
