Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Medical examiners have confirmed that the dead body found inside a burned California cabin is indeed, EX-LAPD Officer, Christopher Dorner.

CNN News reports, "The identification of the rogue former police officer, blamed in four killings was made through dental records."

Police surrounded Dorner at a cabin in Big Bear Lake, California on Tuesday.

He was wanted for the murder of three people, including a police officer.

A gun battle broke out and another deputy was shot and killed.

That's when police detonated a smoke device in the cabin, which set it on fire.

Some officers say they heard a single gunshot before the cabin was fully engulfed.
