CHARRED REMAINS–In this aerial photo, law enforcement authorities investigate the charred remains of a cabin Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013, where quadruple-murder suspect Christopher Dorner is believed to have died after barricading himself inside during a Tuesday stand-off with police in the Angeles Oaks area of Big Bear, Calif.
