Candy Martin turned on her television Tuesday to see her family’s vacation compound near Big Bear at the center of a standoff between law enforcement officers and a man believed to a fugitive ex-police officer wanted in connection with a string of revenge-style slayings.
"At first it was just utter shock," Martin told NBC 4 during an exclusive on-camera interview.
"And we’re looking and we say, 'Oh these are cabins, these look like,' and there’s no doubt that those are my cabins."
Martin said it was "surreal" to see the Seven Oaks Mountain Cabins on the news as the purported hiding place for a man believed to be former LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner.
