Anderson Cooper Gets Shot Up Coin From Dorner

Posted: Updated:
New York, NY -

Anderson Cooper talked Friday about the package sent to him by ex-LAPD murder suspect Christopher Dorner.

Here's his take:

"Another obviosuly big thing in the news that people are following is this crazy case in California of this former LAPD officer who is on the lose still. I actually learned yesterday, right after we did this daytime show, that this man Dorner is his last name, actually sent me a letter, a parcel that I never actually saw.

It arrived February 1st at our offices at CNN, he sent it to me directly. As you can imagine, I get a lot of mail and a lot of it sometimes are from folks who have issues or are disturbed one way or another, so I actually don't end up seeing a lot of the stuff and it usually just gets forwarded on to security folks and as was the case in this. So, I didn't know that I had been contacted by this person until just yesterday.

He actually sent a coin with three bullet holes in it, it was a coin that formerly belonged to Will Bratton, who was the head of the LAPD, who was his chief. That's the coin right there. I don't know if those are actual bullet holes or if he just punched something through them and there are a couple of messages, as well as a dvd and obviously we alerted law enforcement.

It's very strange. It's a very strange feeling. He had mentioned me. This man, Dorner, had written a lengthy manifesto on his Facebook page naming a number of reporters and he mentioned me. He said I should stop interrupting guests. He had a little advice for me, but he was in general complimentary but he clearly had a message that he wanted to get out to reporters, I am sure he sent them to other people as well.

I am just the only one maybe who knows about it. Anyway, he's still on the lose and police are obviously still looking for him and it's a very serious situation. If anyone does see him, he is considered armed and dangerous and they should contact their local authorities. It's a crazy, crazy time."
