Dorner reward loophole probably means no one will get paid

The city of Los Angeles may have offered a massive reward for information on Christopher Dorner, but a loophole just as large as the payout could prevent tipsters from ever seeing the cash.

LA offered up a $1 million reward for information leading to Dorner's "capture and conviction"--neither of which actually happened.

"There was no capture and no conviction. It's kind of a no-brainer," LAPD Officer Alex Martinez told CBS.

For its part, the LAPD says it's still too early to determine if anyone would even deserve the reward, which was to be combination of public and private money.

Several people, including the couple inside whose cabin Dorner hid and a man who said Dorner stole his truck, could be eligible for the money, should police decide Dorner's case qualifies.

Police believe Dorner died in a fire after police cornered him in a cabin near Big Bear and engaged him in a standoff. He was accused of killing four people, including a Riverside County police officer and a San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy.
