As hundreds of law enforcement officers continue to search the San Bernardino mountains for Christopher Dorner, experts and amateurs are delving into the psyche and motivations of the alleged cop killer.
He may have perished in the mountains east of Los Angeles, without the proper equipment or clothing to survive the harsh wintry weather.
