Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The mother of Christopher Dorner has broken her silence (not that we blame her for not saying anything).Nancy Dorner, whose son Christopher Dorner is believed to have perished in a cabin fire after a shootout with police, expressed sympathy for her son's victims. She released a statement to Fox 11 News on behalf of her family saying that they do not condone his actions:

"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we express our deepest sympathies and condolences to anyone that suffered losses or injuries resulting from Christopher's actions. We do not condone Christopher's actions. The family has no further comments and ask that our privacy be respected during this difficult time."

She also told Fox that she thought there could be validity to the claims that Dorner made in his manifesto and thought that they were worth examining. She said she wished her son had called up a news station to share his claims instead of committing horrific acts of murder and terrorizing Southern California, Fox reports.There was a bizarre report from yesterday that Nancy Dorner was spotted eating chips, drinking wine and acting nonchalantly at a bar while watching the standoff.
