As we suspected previously, Christopher Dorner is dead.
CNN confirmed that the former cop and sailor was killed today during the showdown outside of Big Bear.
The body of the alleged murderer has now been removed from the charred remnants of the cabin he hid out in this afternoon after a shootout which killed one deputy and seriously injured one more.
At this point, we don't know whether Dorner was killed in the fire, or by police, or maybe even by a self-inflicted gunshot.
While there is much to learn about how this horrible situation unfolded, we are thrilled the madness and violence is finally over.
Our thoughts and well-wishes continue to extend by every single person affected by this horrible series of tragedies.
