Tip from former LAPD mentor led to Dorner manhunt


The training officer whose dispute with former Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner led to his firing says it was her "long shot" tip that led police to suspect Dorner of killing an Irvine couple, setting off the deadly manhunt that would end with Dorner's suicide.

   Dorner was fired in 2009 for making false allegations against Sgt. Teresa Evans.

   Evans told the Los Angeles Times Thursday (http://lat.ms/X05dHQ ) that police near San Diego called her Feb. 4, to say they had found some of Dorner's belongings, and his notebook included Evans' name. It was the day after the daughter of an ex-LAPD captain and her fiance were found dead.

   Evans recalled that the ex-captain had once represented Dorner and called Irvine police with a hunch he might be involved. Dorner would soon be named the suspect.
