“Everyone has different rules. I don’t anticipate city of L.A. doing the same.”
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck reconfirming today that the City of L.A. will uphold its pledge to pay $1 million in reward money it initially offered for the arrest of ex-cop turned fugitive Christopher Dorner.
“Well be able to dispatch whatever reward remains. I am convinced and so is the mayor,” Chief Beck says.
That will account for $1 million of the reward money, but the rest has yet to be determined.
The controversy stems over the fine print, with many of the donors stipulating an “arrest and conviction of Dorner.”
The Dorner manhunt ended with the ex-cop killing himself in a cabin near Big Bear.
Still the question of who gets the remaining reward money remains.
Will it be the couple who Dorner tied up and who alerted authorities of his presence?
Or will it be the man who had his car hijacked by Dorner, and who’s tip ultimately led to deputies corning him in the cabin.
Chief Beck says LAPD has been meeting with the Mayor’s office to determine who is eligible and who will get the reward money.
A decision is expected to be made by late April.
