IRVINE DOUBLE MURDER:  Former LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner is wanted in connection with the double murder of engaged couple, Monica Quan and her fiancé, Keith Lawrence, who were fatally shot while sitting in their car on the top level of a parking structure in the 2100 block of Scholarship Drive, according to Irvine police. Christopher Jordan Dorner was reportedly disgruntled over his termination from the department.

He is believed to have targeted Monica Quan because her father, Randy Quan, worked on the Asian Gang Task Force and Dorner repeatedly referenced his name in his manifesto as being involved in his termination.

“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours. Quan, …, and BOR members Look your wives/husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead,” the manifesto read, in part.


Maggard said that Christopher Jordan Dorner implicated himself in a “multi-page manifesto” that was published online but has since been taken down. A source inside LAPD gave NBC4 the manifesto, which is about 11,300 words long and appears to lay out a plan for targeting those involved in his firing.

In the manifesto — addressed to “America” and titled “Last Resort” — Dorner writes that the “horrendous murders” are “a necessary evil.”

“I know I will be villified (sic) by the LAPD and the media,” he writes. “Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.”

Dorner goes on to say, “There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep.”

Authorities asked for the public’s help in finding Dorner, whose last known address is 4931 Sharon Dr. in La Palma. Dorner is described as 6 feet tall, about 270 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Source

Monica Quan was an assistant basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton. If you have any information about the whereabouts of Christopher Jordan Dorner, please call the Irvine Police at 949-724-7192 or 911. Dorner is considered armed and dangerous.
