Autopsy: Fugitive Ex-Cop Dorner Died of Single Gunshot to the Head

dornergun692SAN BERNARDINO — Autopsy results on former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner show he died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Cpt. Kevin Lacy, with the San Bernardino County Coroner’ office says authorities have not yet ruled on Dorner’s manner of death.

But based on the information they have collected so far, it appears Dorner took his own life.

“While we’re still compiling the information and putting our reports together, the information that we have right now seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner’s life was self-inflicted,” Lacy said.

Dorner’s charred remains were identified during the autopsy through dental records.
