One of the first alleged victims of former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner was remembered over the weekend as a private funeral was held for 28-year-old Monica Quan.

Quan and her fiance, 27-year-old Keith Lawrence, were found shot to death on Super Bowl Sunday atop the parking structure of their Irvine condo complex. They had gotten engaged only days before.


Quan was the assistant coach for the women’s basketball team at Cal State Fullerton, and Lawrence was a public safety officer at USC.

Quan was the daughter of former LAPD Capt. Randy Quan, who was mentioned in an online manifesto authorities said Dorner posted to his Facebook page. Randy Quan had represented Dorner in the process that led to his termination from the LAPD.

In the manifesto, Dorner railed about being unfairly fired and promised to exact revenge, saying he had to kill in order to clear his name.

The funeral was held Sunday.
