LA County Approves $100K In Dorner Reward Money

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County has approved $100,000 in rewards for people who helped authorities track down fired Los Angeles policeman Christopher Dorner near the end of his killing rampage.

The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to pay $80,000 to Karen and Jim Reynolds, who contacted authorities after Dorner tied them up in their Big Bear cabin and stole their car.

Another $20,000 will go to Daniel McGowan, who reported seeing Dorner’s burning pickup on a ski hill.

Various agencies had offered a total of $1 million in rewards.

Dorner killed four people during a weeklong rampage last February before he was surrounded. After a shootout, he killed himself in a burning cabin near Big Bear.
