2 Maids Sparked Events Ending Manhunt For Ex-Cop

Posted: Updated:

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - A string of events that ended with the death of the man believed to be a wanted ex-Los Angeles police officer started when he encountered a mother and daughter pair of housekeepers at a cabin in the mountains east of Los Angeles.
    
Family member Jay Hylton told KABC-TV the pair wasn't hurt. The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/XKkGt8 ) reported the women surprised Dorner Tuesday, he tied them up and then fled in a purple Nissan.
    
The Times reported that one maid eventually broke free and called 911.
    
About a half hour later, the suspect got into gunfights with authorities, one of whom was killed, after barricading himself in a cabin where a charred body was found, along with Dorner's driver's license.
    
LAPD says its operations are back to normal.
