A charred body has been found in the burned cabin where a fugitive ex-cop is believed to have been in a standoff with sheriff's deputies, a law enforcement official has said.
The body was found at about 6.30pm local time on Tuesday, the official said.
Authorities said earlier they believed the man in the cabin was Christopher Dorner. He had been on the run since they say he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.
Officials will be looking for identifying marks such as tattoos before confirming the identity.
Police say Dorner killed four people, including a deputy on Tuesday.
