Why didn't the killer get rid of the bloody hammer (spoilers)


Forgive me if this question has been answered earlier but I just recently saw the film.

The killer seemed to cover all the bases yet leaves the bloody hammer around with evidence on it. Why not just sterilize it and discard it somewhere.

Probably to keep it as a trophy!!!

The whole ending was a lie. The killer wanted to frame Rusty all the way to jail. It's the only reason to keep the weapon.
