Officer who ID'd Dorner still on alert

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- The Los Angeles police training officer who suspected Christopher Dorner in a wave of killings says she is wary in her own home because she is getting threats.

Sgt. Terie Evans was Dorner's training officer when he was a rookie. Dorner accused her of kicking a handcuffed man, and when an investigation cleared Evans of the allegation, Dorner was fired for making up the charge.

After a young couple were killed Feb. 3 in Irvine, Calif., Evans noticed one of the victims was the daughter of an LAPD officer who was involved in Dorner's firing and notified investigators -- who found a website in which Dorner said he planned to take revenge on the officers and their families he blamed for his firing.

Evans says people have tried to break into her home and she has received threats, even though Dorner is dead, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Her link to Dorner has irrevocably changed her life, Evans says.

"I don't know if I'm ever going to feel safe in my home again," Evans said. "Years from now, my family could potentially still be at risk."

As a massive manhunt for Dorner spread out across southern California, Evans and about 50 other LAPD officers went into hiding or were put under protection with armed guards.
