LAPD: Dorner reward to be decided by 3 judges
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Police Department says three former judges will decide whether anyone can lay claim to the $1 million reward for leading law enforcement officers to Christopher Dorner.
The department announced the process Friday for submitting a claim to the money. It said the judges will also determine how the reward should be distributed, if at all.
Dorner killed four people during a rampage to avenge his firing from the LAPD. The killings sparked a manhunt that ended when he was chased into a mountain cabin, where he shot himself.
Dueling claims have been submitted by people asserting they should receive the reward, which was culled by about 30 public and private entities.
Some who contributed to the pot have withdrawn their pledge because Dorner wasn’t captured or convicted.
