You fail to explain why upon hearing the news from the Amalekite, David and his men tear their clothes and grieve. If they knew about Sauls death, why do that? Why are they not recorded as denouncing the Amalekite as a liar if indeed the silly story is to discredit the Amalekites? Why would they need to do that anyway since Saul has already,prior to his demise, slain all the Amalekites anyway?
