As fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner remains on the loose in Southern California, additional details about his case continue to emerge.
It was recently revealed that after Dorner allegedly killed Moncia Quan last week, he called her father, former Los Angeles police Capt. Randall Quan, in order to taunt him about his daughter’s death. According to The Daily Mail, Dorner wrote in online postings that he blames Mr. Quan for his 2009 firing from the Los Angeles Police Department. Mr. Quan unsuccessfully represented Dorner at review board hearings prior to his dismissal from the LAPD.
According to reports, a man claiming to be Dorner called Mr. Quan and told him he “should have done a better job of protecting his daughter.” Among other strange postings on Dorner’s Facebook page, he created notes where he promised to murder the families of many of his former police office colleagues and to kill anyone who tried to stop him.
“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own... so I am terminating yours,” he wrote.
On Sunday the LAPD publicly pushed for Dorner to turn himself in and also offered a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said the $1 million bounty is likely be the largest reward ever offered in southern California. According to Beck, raising the reward money was “remarkably easy” because of the threat Dorner poses to law enforcement officers and their families in the region. Much of the cash was raised by police unions, local businesses, community groups and local government across southern California.
“We will not tolerate this reign of terror that has robbed us of our security,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said during a press conference held on Sunday. In an interesting twist, a practice that has been utilized in the “War on Terror” abroad, the use of drones, has been mentioned as a possible remedy to this domestic problem.
When asked whether drones would be used in the hunt for Dorner, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz said the department would be “using all the tools at our disposal.” It is believed thermal imaging cameras on the drones could prove crucial in the search.
