A spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County sheriff-coroner said Thursday that the remains found in a burned-out cabin in Big Bear, Calif., are indeed those of fugitive Christopher Dorner. The body was identified through Dorner’s dental records.

If anything is unbelievable to us, it’s the very existence of a cult of Dorner supporters. Many in #TeamDorner have been suggesting that Dorner might have escaped and left another body as a decoy. Sadly, anyone who can find a way to justify the murders of which Dorner is suspected isn’t about to buy the word of the police.

Others concede that Dorner is dead, but say that his “message” lives on.

Not everyone is broken up by the news. The #TeamDeadDorner hashtag began making the rounds yesterday.
