ENID, Oklahoma -
The suspect in the death of at least one police officer in the Los Angeles area published a rambling manifesto listing his grievances and claims to have lived in Enid, Okla.
Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, wrote a manifesto to America about his "last resort."
"I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days," Dorner wrote. "I know I will be villified (sic) by the LAPD and the media. 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 claims to have lived in Enid. He lists the locations where he used to live while growing up.
Cerritos, CA. Pico Rivera, CA. La Palma, CA. Thousand Oaks, CA. Cedar City, UT. Pensacola, FL. Enid, OK. Yorba Linda, CA. Las Vegas, NV.
In his manifesto, he asks journalists to investigate every location he lived in to see if there were any accusations against him for bullying.
"You won't, because it doesn't exist," Dorner writes.
Dorner states in the manifesto that the attacks will only stop once his innocence is announced publicly.
"A man is nothing without his name," Dorner writes.
