Mayor's office: Full Dorner reward won't be paid

The Associated PressJuly 16, 2014 

— The Los Angeles mayor's office says not all of the $1 million reward offered for the capture of fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner will be paid out because some donors canceled their pledges when their terms were not met.

The Orange County Register reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1t4s2aZ ) that money from donors including the city of Riverside and the Los Angeles Police Protective League was pledged under the condition that Dorner be arrested and convicted. Instead, Dorner killed himself.

Vicki Curry, spokeswoman for Eric Garcetti, says the mayor pressed all donors this year for their money. City officials say a total of $866,000 was paid out.

Authorities say Dorner killed four people and engaged police in a standoff before killing himself in a burning cabin in the San Bernardino mountains last year.
