AP source: Body found in rubble of burned cabin

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press a charred body has been found in the burned cabin where a fugitive ex-cop is believed to have been in a standoff with sheriff's deputies.

The official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing says the body was found at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Christopher Dorner has been on the run since they say he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.

Officials will be looking for identifying marks such as tattoos before confirming the identity.

Police say Dorner killed four people, including a deputy on Tuesday.
