Even as Irvine police were trying to confirm the identities of a young couple found shot to death in an Irvine parking garage early this month, the department's on-duty watch commander received a late-night call from former LAPD Capt. Randal Quan.
According to an Irvine detective's search warrant affidavit released Monday, Quan had seen an early news report of the double homicide at the condo complex at 2100 Scholarship.
Quan, the document states, was worried that his daughter, Monica, 28, who lived there, might be a victim.
Quan explained that his daughter called him every night but had not returned his calls that night.
The former police captain said his daughter and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, 27, drove a small white car, similar to the one described on the news report.
Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence, who were found dead in Lawrence's white Kia Optima, were the first known homicide victims blamed on fired LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner, whose rampage earlier this month also left two law officers dead and culminated in Dorner's suicide.
