LOS ANGELES The presumed death of former LA police officer and suspected quadruple killer Christopher Dorner has left questions over the $1 million reward in his case.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's spokesman, Peter Sanders, said Wednesday it's too early in the investigation to determine whether anyone would deserve the award.

LAPD Officer Alex Martinez says it's unlikely anyone can claim it because the reward referred to Dorner's capture and conviction.

"There was no capture and no conviction. It's kind of a no-brainer," Martinez said.
