BIG BEAR — An LAPD source confirmed to KTLA that a body found inside a burned out cabin in Big Bear is believed to be that of accused cop-killer Christopher Dorner.
Authorities are in the process of removing his body from the cabin.
The fugitive former officer had been holed up in the cabin for several hours on Tuesday afternoon.
At one point, police broke windows, pumped in tear gas and blasted a loud speaker urging Dorner to surrender.
When they got no response, police deployed a vehicle to rip down the walls of the cabin “one by one, like peeling an onion,” a law enforcement official said.
By the time they got to the last wall, authorities heard a single gunshot, the source said.
