Donor doubts over $1M reward in ex-cop Dorner case

LOS ANGELES (AP) - As several people vied for the $1 million offered in the hunt for rogue ex-Los Angeles cop Christopher Dorner, at least one donor that pledged money toward the award is expressing misgivings about the payout.

Ron Cottingham, president of the Peace Officers Research Association of California, tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/Yqt1HR) his union has placed its pledge on hold pending additional information.

Cottingham says other donors have told him the reward doesn't fit their criteria.

At issue is whether the award initially publicized as being for Dorner's capture and conviction should go to anyone after the manhunt ended with Dorner's apparent suicide in a burning cabin after a weeklong rampage that left four others dead.

Both the mayor and LAPD have said they want to see the reward paid.
