Former LAPD Officer Suspected in Death of Irvine Couple
Irvine Police are giving out very few, yet disturbing details about the death of a young couple in Irvine. Police say they suspect Christopher Jordan Dorner, a fired LAPD officer of killing Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence in Irvine before heading out on a deadly crime spree. Dorner, was fired for allegations that he falsified information regarding his field training officer (FTO). Dorner had made allegations that the FTO kicked a suspect several times prior to arresting him. At a hearing, which included other members of the LAPD, Dorner was found to have falsified the allegation.
Dorner has left behind what police are calling a “manifesto” detailing his intent to kill members of the board that fired him from the LAPD. Monica Quan, the women who was killed in Irvine is the daughter of former LAPD Captain Quan, who was a member of the board that revoked Dorner’s status as a member of the LAPD.
Authorities believe Dorner next headed out toward Riverside County where another member of the board lived. Dorner is believed to have shot three officers in Riverside County, killing one.
Police throughout the state are on high alert for Dorner. He is believed to be armed and very dangerous. Anyone with information should contact their local police agency.
