As the Christopher Dorner saga winds down, #TeamDorner truthers have taken to social media to push their conspiracy theories about the circumstances surrounding the alleged cop killer’s supposed death on Tuesday.
A body believed to be that of Dorner, the 33-year-old ex-LAPD officer whose purported killing spree terrorized the Southern California area for more than a week, was found in a charred cabin in Big Bear onTuesday. The body had not been positively identified, but authorities said they assumed it was Dorner, who is suspected of four killings during a revenge-fueled spree that was predicted in his online manifesto.
San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said in a press conference on Tuesday that the manhunt for Dorner was called off after the fire that followed the running gun battles resulting in Dorner being cornered in the cabin.
Dorner reportedly retreated into the mountainside cabin Tuesday in the middle of one fierce gunfight with police in which a sheriff’s deputy was killed. During another shootout, the house caught fire and police reportedly heard a single gunshot as the flames spread.

These #TeamDorner truthers are ranting now about the discrepancies, and possible conspiracies, involving the way Dorner was brought down.
Here are the latest debates and conspiracy theories in the Christopher Dorner case:
The truthers have jumped on conflicting media reports about Dorner’s wallet. There are three different stories being told.
The Log, a San Diego boating and fishing publication, reported that Dorner’s wallet and ID were discovered near San Diego International Airport on Feb. 7.
Fox News’ report is conflicting. Its story, attributed to the Los Angeles Times, says Dorner’s wallet was at the San Ysidro Point of Entry at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Investigators say Dorner attempted to steal a boat in San Diego and drive it to Mexico. Dorner’s wallet, including his identification cards, was also found at the San Ysidro Point of Entry near the U.S.-Mexico border, the Los Angeles Times reported.”
Finally, the Huffington Post cited The Associated Press when it reported that the wallet containing Dorner’s driver’s license was recovered from the charred rubble of the Big Bear cabin.
Redditors aren’t buying the Huffington Post’s claims. The license would have melted if it were in the cabin fire, they say. And why would someone taking every precaution not to get caught be carrying any identifying information?
How exactly the cabin fire started is a main #TeamDorner hanging point. They claim police intentionally started the fire and purposely let Dorner burn alive.
