Monica Quan, Keith Lawrence murders linked to Christopher Dorner through Randal Quan

The Former LAPD officer and U.S. Navy reservist Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, is the focus of a manhunt in California who is on a shooting rampage.

Dorner is also the suspect in the killing of Monica Quan, 28, and her 27-year-old fiance, Keith Lawrence, who were found shot to death in their car at a parking structure Sunday night, Irvine police Chief David L. Maggard said at a news conference.

Police said Dorner implicated himself in the killings with a multi-page “manifesto” that he wrote that included threats against several people, but would give no further details on the document or its contents.

Autopsies showed both victims were killed by multiple gunshot wounds in the parking structure at their condominium in Irvine, Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said earlier Wednesday.

Quan’s father, Randal Quan, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press Wednesday night.

According to documents from a court of appeals hearing in October 2011, Dorner was fired from the LAPD after he made a complaint against his field training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans, saying in the course of arrest she kicked suspect Christopher Gettler, a schizophrenic with severe dementia.

Dorner denied the allegations, KCBS says.

Following an investigation, Dorner was fired for making false statements.
