The Irvine Police Department have released the photo that you see above of fugitive ex-LAPD cop Christopher Dorner.

The department says that the photo comes from surveillance video that was taken on January 28 at an Orange County hotel. It is the most recently released picture of Dorner. Except for the fact he's not smiling, he doesn't seem to have changed much in appearance from the other pictures we've seen of him in his Navy and LAPD uniforms. The Irvine Police Department is investigating the deaths of Keith Lawrence and his fiancée Monica Quan, the daughter of an LAPD captain.

There have been "sightings" of Dorner everywhere over the last two days, but none of them have panned out. A businessman in San Diego, an elderly latina newspaper deliverywoman, a security guard in El Monte and a policeman in Ontario have all been mistaken for Dorner.

In the meantime, the SWAT team hasn't been able to find Dorner in a massive snowstorm blanketing the region.
