Police have said the week-long manhunt for fugitive Christopher Dorner will not be declared over until the charred body found in a burned cabin is confirmed as the ex-LAPD officer, the Los Angeles Times has reported.
LA Police Chief Charlie Beck though reflected on a "bittersweet night" after a sheriff's deputy was killed in yesterday's gun battle in the Californian mountains, suggesting police are confident the remains will prove to be Dorner.
Police said the San Bernardino County deputy was the fourth person to have been killed by the former cop.
