Ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner -- the subject of a citywide manhunt -- wrote a rambling manifesto professing his love for dozens of celebrities, and now some of them are coming forward ... begging the fugitive to surrender to police.
L.A. radio personality Bill Handel, from KFI-AM, spoke to us moments ago about Dorner ... and recorded a personal plea for Dorner to turn himself in to authorities.
We also spoke to comedienne Lisa Lampanelli, who Dorner called a "genius," and she made a similar plea.
So far, Dorner is suspected of shooting and killing three people, one of whom was a police officer. Two other officers were injured in the shootings.
