LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The presumed death of former LA police officer and suspected quadruple killer Christopher Dorner has left questions over the $1 million reward in his case.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's spokesman Peter Sanders said Wednesday it's too early in the investigation to determine whether anyone would deserve the award.
LAPD Officer Alex Martinez says it's unlikely anyone can claim it because the reward referred to Dorner's capture and conviction.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said it was the biggest such reward ever offered in Southern California.
Candidates would likely include two cleaning women who said they came upon Dorner at the cabin where he'd been hiding, and Rick Heltebrake, whose says Dorner stole his truck as he fled before the final firefight and cabin blaze that led to Dorner's presumed death.
