    Many states have a duty to retreat if you can do so with safety; in simple terms you are not to seek a fight. If you pursue someone who's running away, and the encounter turns deadly, more likely than not _you_ are going to be seen as the perp, and it becomes much, much harder for you to demonstrate that you acted in "self defense." Don't go looking for fights, chasing fleeing suspects is strictly a job for the law enforcement professionals.

    Two examples come to mind where this was proven false.

    Going on pursue is totally stupid, but it has nothing to do with the premise of self defense if you get attacked. You could pursue someone who stole you car stereo, for example, be attacked and defend yourself... Even sold those syereps "confiscated" witjout reporting to the police and still win the case of self defense..... Also you can follow an unarmed suspecious individual to a dark alley, confront him and shoot him when he punch you, and still be acquitted.

    You see, self defense is what happen just when you have to act...not 5 minutes before.

    And the lack of witness is always a point to consider

    Not under the example given, but I have no doubt, based on specific circumstances, that I would.
