Charred corpse believed killer ex-policeman in USA

New York, February 13 - The charred remains of a body were found in the burnt ruins of a southern California cabin, where an ex-policeman on a fatal rampage entered his last showdown with police, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday, citing a local sheriff. Thirty-three-year-old Chris Dorner had a $1 million bounty on his head for several murders, and has been the target of a massive manhunt since he began taking revenge February 3 for what he saw as an unjust dismissal from the Los Angeles police force in 2009. Dorner declared ''war'' against the police and launched a series of attacks left four people dead, including two police officers, and four wounded. On Tuesday, Dorner was surrounded by hundreds of police officers after barricading himself in a cabin in the mountain community of Big Bear, near Los Angeles. When Dorner began to fire shots from the cabin, police fired back and lobbed teargas inside. A single shot was heard in the cabin before it burst into flames. The San Bernadino sheriff told the L.A. Times that the corpse would undergo scientific analysis to verify whether it is indeed Dorner.
