The charred body of former LAPD officer Christopher J. Dorner was found inside the burned-out cabin in Big Bear Lake where police officers had been caught in a deadly shootout, reported The New York Times.

The cabin, believed to be harboring Dorner, was set ablaze after police shot pyrotechnic teargas, commonly referred to as burners, to flush Dorner out, reported BBC News.

Dorner began his alleged rampage Feb. 3 when he killed the daughter of a former police captain, and her fiance, reported ABC News.

Dorner had not been spotted since Tuesday; authorities believe he had been hiding out in an unoccupied cabin steps away from where they had set up a command center, reported The New York Times.
