Friends, Well-Wishers Light Candles for Slain USC Safety Officer

lawrence692LOS ANGELES (KTLA) – As the massive manhunt for ex-LAPD officer and triple-murder suspect Christopher Dorner continues, USC remembered one of his alleged victims.

Police believe that Dorner killed USC safety officer Keith Lawrence execution-style, along with Lawrence’s fiancee Monica Quan, in a parking lot at their Irvine condo complex on Sunday (Feb. 3).

Quan is the daughter of retired LAPD captain Randy Quan, who represented Dorner in the appeal process connected to Dorner’s firing from the LAPD and termination in 2009.

Police believe the couple’s killing by Dorner was an outgrowth of Dorner’s anger over being fired, part of his vendatta against Randy Quan and other LAPD officers and their families. .

In remembrance of Lawrence, a small memorial and candlelight vigil was held for him on the USC campus.

Along with notes of remembrance to Lawrence, friends and well-wishers lit candles in his honor.
