"In my mind, it felt like such a long shot," said Teresa Evans. Dorner, her partner and trainee, had accused her of police brutality in 2008, leading to his dismissal for making false statements in 2009. "But my gut feeling made it a lot stronger than that. I just knew. Something told me that there was some kind of a connection."

1. So the inquiry about the uniform was random?

 

There was no connection to the area where Monica Quan was killed?

If so I am surprised they would follow up on a police uniform in a dumpster.
