So if you're ruling out the report that a rouge meteorite started the fire, should I assume you agree with my earlier report that Dorner was all tuckered out from the days events and was smoking while laying in bed. Unfortunately he quickly went off to dreamland holding a lit cigarette which tragically set the mattress ablaze and spread throughout the cabin like a wildfire.
Autopsy results on former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner show he died from a single gunshot wound to the head that was likely self-inflicted, authorities said Friday.

Don't forget the boat that he tried to hijack and was unable to operate!
A San Diego yacht owner whose boat was nearly hijacked last week by an intruder police believe was fugitive Christopher Dorner said Tuesday he hopes authorities finish him off in Big Bear.
“I hope they finish him up today. We don’t want the expense of a trial,” said the 81-year-old yachtsman, who did not want his name published because he is a crime victim. He was alone on his boat about 10 p.m. Feb. 6 when a large black man came aboard, tied him up, and said he wanted to go to Mexico, authorities have said. The intruder tried to steer the 42-foot cabin cruiser away from its dock at Southwestern Yacht Club near Point Loma, but a line became entangled in the propeller and he gave up, authorities said.
He left the yacht and the owner made enough noise to attract the attention of people on nearby boats.
“It’s past, it’s over,” the yacht owner said of his encounter with Dorner. “He smashed things and took my cellphone. He wasn’t very friendly when he was here, especially when he tied me up. So, good riddance.”
Fishermen at Driscoll Wharf told NBC 7 exclusively that Dorner was on the pier near Nimitz and Harbor Island Drive on Feb. 5 trying to charm his way into a boat ride to Mexico. “He kept saying he wanted to go fishing off Mexico. I said ‘Mexico? That’s kinda weird. You could go fishing on the bay,’” said Jeremy Smith, a local commercial fisherman.
Smith and others at the dock said Dorner was willing to pay $200 to $400 for someone to take him out to sea. He told the fishermen he was going to be deployed to Afghanistan and just wanted to go fishing in Mexico first. But at this pier, far away from popular fishing charters, most people were making repairs on their boats, not ready to go to sea.Smith offered to show him around a luxury yacht that was for sale docked at the pier. But he asked him to remove the military style boots Dorner was wearing to keep the white carpeting clean. Dorner declined.
After spending an hour at the pier, the fishermen said Dorner left, but returned with fish tacos for Smith, hoping that would convince the fisherman to help him find a charter.
The witnesses reported Dorner was very friendly, always with a smile on his face, calling himself "Mike." The man who called himself "Mike" told Smith a story about a friend who was having problems with the police and said his friend had been fired. "I think he was talking about himself, now that I think about it," added Smith.
Dorner eventually left peacefully without his ride to Mexico, the group of fisherman said.
Smith said Dorner returned to the wharf on Feb. 6 but still couldn't find anyone to take him to Mexican waters.
That same day, a man fitting Dorner’s description tried to steal a boat from a San Diego marina, according to officials. An 81-year-old man on the boat was tied up but uninjured. The would-be boat thief was unable to steal the boat and fled.
Later that night, police issued Dorner's description, and the fishermen said they notified authorities of their encounter.

Also, have you heard any interviews of his buddies in the Navy? I haven't. They are keeping very quiet about Dorner's training and records.

Investigators found an arsenal of assault rifles, small handguns, a Kevlar helmet and grenades during the manhunt, Herbert said during the news conference.
Grenades? Where would he get these? Oddly, none of the gear displayed looks in any way scorched by the flames.
"All the artillery shells, tear gas canisters and bullets from the intense shootout between police and Dorner have been collected by authorities and were gone before the road was reopened."

A lying medical examiner might sound a little far fetched but here in Chicago you only have to look at the case of Kathleen Savio (Drew Peterson's ex-wife).
A few days before her divorce was to be final, she was found dead in a dry bath tub.
The wonderful conclusion was she hit her head, drowned and then bath tub somehow drained.
It was just one of those coincidences that her ex-cop husband was able to get 100% of the assets.
The initial medical examiner ruled this an accident. Foul play wasn't even a consideration.
Would another medical examiner be willing to "view" certain details for their cop friends?
I hope the mother is able to get a second autopsy.
It was a house of horrors.
Body parts in plastic bags tossed on a cooler floor.
Corpse-carrying forklifts driven by untrained workers crashing into shelves holding the dead.
Autopsy instruments smeared with bodily fluids strewn haphazardly.
Dead bodies stacked unceremoniously in coolers.
But worst of all: A potential breeding ground for a communicable disease nightmare.
