I have friends who are public defenders in a large city. One of the big problems that they face that cops lie all the time. But because of the sanctified status of police officers it is difficult to get juries to believe that it happens. This may be evidence of lying by local police that their theory that "yes Dorner was here" is correct.
(BTW one case was won for the defense, because a gun owner was on the Jury. He could spot the prosecutor's lie about fire arms purportedly used by the defendant.)
