IRVINE (CBSLA.com) — Officials revealed Thursday that a police uniform with Christopher Dorner’s name tag was dumped near the Mexican border after a couple was killed in Irvine.
CBS2 and KCAL9’s Michele Gile has details you will only see on CBS2.
Gile also reported people connected to the case are speculating Dorner might have been wearing the uniform while he allegedly killed Monica Quan and her fiance Keith Lawrence.
Gile asked Irvine police to comment. They replied, “All aspects of this case are being actively investigated.”
A Dorner search warrant and affidavit says two days after the Quan/Lawrence killings police in National City, near the Mexican border, recovered “police uniforms, police duty gear, high capacity magazines for 9mm ammunition, and a badge for Officer Dorner.”
Gile’s report showed surveillance video of Dorner allegedly dumping the magazine clips and a military belt into a large dumpster.
According to the warrant, evidence recovered from the Irvine crime scene indicates “the couple was shot multiple times by rounds from a 9mm pistol and the suspect was using a high capacity magazine to fire that many rounds.”
Several days before the siege in Big Bear, heavily-armed guards served a search warrant at Christopher Dorner’s mother’s house in La Palma. They planned to seize “firearms, magazines, holsters, ammunition, suppressors as well as plans, maps, diaries, journals that might provide details of any planning involved in the preparation of … the crime.”
