Efforts are continuing today to identify charred human remains found in a burned-down cabin in Big Bear. They are widely believed to be those of fired LAPD officer Chris Dorner, who has now been charged with murdering of four people since February 3rd. 

Investigations are also continuing into how he eluded police on a 6-day manhunt, and hid out in a cabin only feet away from the searchers' command post.

Joining us now to talk about where that investigation goes from here, is John Asbury, he's the crime reporter for the Press-Enterprise newspaper in Riverside County.  

Correction: An earlier version of this page stated the Press-Enterprise was in San Bernardino County. It's actually located in Riverside County, but reporter John Asbury covers San Bernardino County.
