Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence Autopsies Show Engaged Couple Shot Multiple Times
Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence, RIP
Perhaps lost in the manhunt for Christopher Jordan Dorner, who is accused of this week's cold-blooded shooting deaths of a Riverside police officer, Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence, are the results of the slain engaged Irvine couple's autopsies.
No surprise there: Quan, 28, and Lawrence, 27, died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Orange County coroner confirmed Wednesday.
But the sheriff's department, which includes the coroner's office as a division, cited the ongoing investigation in withholding such details as where each victim was shot and how many rounds struck each.
As reported last night, the so-called "manifesto" Dorner left behind stated Monica's father, Randal Quan, who as an LAPD police captain advocated for the triple-murder suspect in disciplinary actions, had supposedly not fought vigorously enough on his behalf. Dorner had a special message for the retired cop directing him to look into the faces of his family members to explain why Monica Quan was taken out.
