TORRANCE (CBSLA.com) — Federal court records filed Monday indicate that the former LAPD police officer accused of killing three people may have tried to flee to Mexico with the help of a friend.
The documents, which include an arrest affidavit, were filed with the US District Court Monday.
“There is probable cause to believe that Dorner has moved and traveled in interstate and foreign commerce from California to Mexico with the intent to avoid prosecution,” an investigator with the U.S. Marshals said in the documents.
The records detail the 33-year-old’s alleged movements following the murders of Monica Quan and her fiancé, Keith Lawrence on Feb. 3 and Riverside Police Officer Michael Crain on Feb. 7.
Dorner is wanted as a suspect in all three crimes.
Officials say Dorner may have tried to flee to Mexico with the help of an associate, identified only as JY, who lives in the Big Bear area, KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.
