LOS ANGELES - A couple tied up by rogue former police officer Christopher Dorner at a Southern California mountain condominium are seeking the $1.2 million reward offered for his capture.
The Los Angeles Daily News reported Karen and Jim Reynolds contend their information alone led to the murder suspect being cornered last month near Big Bear. They dispute another claim filed by Rick Heltebrake, a Boy Scout camp ranger who was carjacked by Dorner shortly before the final confrontation.
Dorner was hunted for nearly a week before apparently killing himself in a burning cabin after a shootout with law enforcement officers.
Shortly before the confrontation, the couple found Dorner in their condo. He stole their SUV but Karen Reynolds managed to call 911.
Authorities haven't decided who gets the reward.
