Murder of Cal State Coach

Follow-up: Murder of Cal State Fullerton Coach


547273_t607The double murder of Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence Sunday night is believed to be the work of a former LAPD officer.  Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, was dismissed from his position as a police officer in 2008 for allegedly making false statements about his training officer.

A massive manhunt is underway in Riverside, California for Dorner.  He is suspected of the shooting of 3 police officers early Thursday morning.  Two were shot in their patrol car.  One was able to radio for help.  Both were taken to a hospital, and, sadly, one of them did not survive.  The third officer suffered a graze wound in Corona.

Dorner had related to fellow policemen that his life’s ambition was to be a police officer since he participated in the Explorer Program.

Authorities say that Dorner wrote an online manifesto threatening to harm police officials and their families.  In the online postings, Dorner specifically named retired L.A. police captain Randy Quan, the father of Monica Quan.

Dorner commented online that now that his life’s ambition had been taken away from him he was severely depressed, and filled with rage against those who forced him from his job.

Dorner complained that Quan and others did not fairly represent him at the review hearing.

“Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over. Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family.

“There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep,” he wrote, referring to Quan and several others.

“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours,” he added.  Quan apparently served as Dorner’s representative, according to the manifesto.

“He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name,” Dorner wrote of Quan. “He works for the department, period.”

In the document, he threatens violence against other police officers.

“The violence of action will be high…. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty,” Dorner wrote.

In his manifesto, Dorner seemed to allude to the double murder in Irvine.

He says he he knows people who know him “are in disbelief” about media reports that he’s suspected of “such horrendous murders.”

“Unfortunately,” he said, “this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.”

Dorner had registered a complaint against his training officer for kicking a suspect.  The review board found his accusations false, and terminated him.

Dorner is a Navy reservist.  After his graduation from the academy in 2006, he left for a 13 month military deployment in November.

“This is my last resort,” he wrote. “The LAPD has suppressed the truth and it has now led to deadly consequences.”
