Sheriff’s Official: Dorner Died Of Gunshot Wound To Head

Source: CBS Los Angeles

Capt. Kevin Lacy of the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner said a 6-hour autopsy conducted by the Riverside County Coroner’s Division showed that Dorner died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

“During the autopsy yesterday, the doctor who conducted the process, concluded that the cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head,” Lacy said, adding that officials are not yet ready to comment on the manner of his death.

“We will tell you that while we’re still compiling the information and putting our reports together, the information that we have right now seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner’s life was self-inflicted,” Lacy said.

1. That fits the circumstantial evidence from that evening.

As reported on scanners, as reported here on DU and live reportage.

A single shot. Then no more. The fire started about that same time.

15. Your assertion doesn't change the fact that he took on the entire 10,000 member police force.

 

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, he also knew that additinal police agencies would be involved and he took them on as well.

Your statement that the "LAPD wasn't involved in his death" doesn't make sense unless you only mean that the LAPD wasn't on the scene at the time of his death. Obviously, it continued to be involved with running him down and letting it be known through their actions that they had no intention of trying to capture him alive and ensuring his safety if he surrendered to police authorities.

So instead of being cooked alive, he chose to shoot himself. It is obviously irrational to say that a person who openly takes on entire police department and all the police agencies in the area is a coward.

16. "Instead of being cooked alive." FALSE. He shot himself instead of surrendering

and submitting himself to the authority of the cops he hated so much. He had the option of leaving the cabin.

The LAPD did not prevent him for surrendering peacefully. Only Chris Dorner did that.

He was real brave shooting that unarmed young woman. Real brave hiding like a rat.

When it came time to face the consequences of his action and turn himself in to face trial, he punked out instead.

17. If only the two pickup-driving women, and the pickup-driving surfer, had submitted to the cops,

 

maybe their pickups wouldn't have been shot up, and their lives put at risk, by trigger-happy cops.

18. Those cops are to blame for what they did and didn't do.

Chris Dorner is responsible for everything he did (killing five people including himself) and what he did not do--he did not take responsibility for what he did and turn himself in to face the legal process. He had a week to do walk into any church, any media outlet, any McDonalds and put his hands on his head and say "tell the police I'm here. Someone get this on film. I'm unarmed."



He wasn't brave enough to wind up in a court room with the families of those he butchered without his guns.

29. Plain and simple, you said "LAPD wasn't involved in his death" which is obviously not true.

 

The LAPD was involved with the chase since the beginning. It did not publicly invite him to turn himself in while guaranting that the LAPD would not immediately try to kill him.

The LAPD was in on the chase.

When there is a fox hunt, the lead dogs are not the only ones involved in the hunt.

If you believe that anyone has interpreted your words in a way that you did not intend, all you have to do is look at the sequence of posts. The post at #9 called him a coward. At #11, I used a 10,000 number to show that he took on overwhelming odds. At #13, you changed the subject by saying "LAPD wasn't involved in his death." At #15, I responded by writing, in part, "Your assertion doesn't change the fact that he took on the entire 10,000 member police force."

Nobody misinterpreted your words.

What a brave guy to take out innocent people and to threaten to take out more.

That sealed his fate more than his manifesto.

30. He didn't "take on" anybody. Unless you count an unarmed college student and her fiancee, who were

sitting in car in a parking garage. He ambushed them, and murdered them.

Then he ambushed two cops sitting at a stoplight in Riverside.

That's not "taking on" anyone--or perhaps you could point to the brave act which you think personifies the outrageous claim:

He took on the entire 10,000 member LA police department. He knew that he would die.

and air passages. I hope this proves that he was not burned alive, not that some will refuse to believe the report.

5. Rampant Corruption

Unfortunately, the LA Police department is so incredibly corrupt, there isn't any way to believe them, or a coroner under their influence. We'll never know what the real story was about because they've buried everything under a code of silence. In short, I don't trust a thing they say.

10. Except if there wasn't anything in it to hide.


I don't know. Why would things look any better or worse about the LAPD if he burned to death instead? What would they have to hide here? That they took him into custody, shot him in the head, then dumped him back in the cabin and burned it down to make it look like, what?

Everybody already knew Dorner would be killed, that he had about a ten percent chance of making it to trial. He would either fight to death, or police would kill him in custody for being a cop killer and a first rate dick. And he would do the former because he knew the latter would likely happen. So, giving out a cover story about the cabin would do what for them?

The LAPD already looks pretty bad already. People don't go through the effort to cover up things when the outcome doesn't make a difference.

7. Not emotionally involved either way.... it's just plain sad

 

No matter which side of the debate you take... it is just plain sad... sad that people were killed, sad that the USA has devolved to this.

Any one who has ever applied for a job at LAPD know how strenuous the application process is. It is no easy task.

Dorner was a Captain in the Naval Reserve... again.. no easy task.

Dorner was (or could be viewed) as the "Cream of the crop" of police recruits.

To see how this process went wrong.. has to ring a wake-up alarm.. somewhere in the process?

We need to look at what we are doing on the world stage. We need to review how police are treating tax-payer Citizens. We need to question what our Military is doing in 135 Countries around the globe.

It's far passed the time.. to take care of America first.

14. Mr. Dorner seemed ambivalent about escaping, but he was never willing to be taken alive.

So I think in the end he kind of got what he wanted, a big dramatic showdown in which he was overwhelmed by superior force on 24x7 TV.

23. Seems unlikely.

We have the manifesto and what we can discern of his activities between then and his demise.

However, if he simply wanted to escape, he had many chances to go for it and did not. And he left a number witnesses alive behind him, in fact that's how he got nailed. He did not want to be apprehended, but he was not planning to go away or to end his vendetta either. He seemed to go back and forth, first he'd shoot somebody and then go wait to be chased, but they never found him when he was hiding, only when he went after them or was running. And he had to know once he hid in that house it was all over.

28. Yes we do. He wanted to be remembered. Too bad the press released his name.

 

this is why NO killer or assasssin or terrorist should be named.

Fame makes people do things, no matter if its good or bad.

Look at the wipearse that asssasssinated John Lennon.
Some people now put the two names together, as if they were equals.

It's why we celebrate Dr. King's BIRTHDAY and not the day he died.

They want fame.

Not releasing their name means cults don't start with people idolizing them.

Dorner was a corrupt cop turned vigilante terrorist.

The world would be better off not having facebook fanclubs for him.

Same with any of the people in the past who did horrible things with guns and other non-life affirming equiptment.
