The beginning of the end for Dorner started yesterday morning, when two maids arrived to clean a vacant cabin and found Dorner inside. He tied them up, then stole a car from the cabin and fled, the Los Angeles TImesreports. (Dorner was initially reported to have tied up a couple.) One of the maids escaped and called police at 12:20pm.
Less than half an hour later, Fish and Wildlife officers spotted Dorner driving a purple Nissan. Recognizing him, they started following. In trying to evade them, Dorner crashed the car and left it.
