Four people who provided crucial information in the hunt for former Los Angeles Police Officer Christopher Dorner will split what is expected to be a $1-million reward in the case, authorities announced Tuesday afternoon.
The division of the highly anticipated reward, sought by at least 12 people after a February gun battle that led to Dorner's death, was overseen by three retired judges and made public in a 12-page report released by the Los Angeles Police Department.
The money will be paid in installments to a couple held captive by Dorner, a ski resort employee and a tow truck driver. The reward was divided based on the "value of the information provided to law enforcement and how directly" it led to authorities to the fugitive former LAPD officer, the report said.
Jim and Karen Reynolds, who were bound and gagged by the rogue ex-officer, will get 80% of the reward because they provided information that "directly led to the hot pursuit and capture of Dorner," according to the report.
