Oscar Pistorius’s Murder Trial Getting even Dirtier

Investigations into the death of Reeva Steenkamp, the girlfriend of South African athlete Oscar Pistorius are still ongoing, South African police are investigating whether Steenkamp’s murder could be connected to the use of performance-boosting steroids. 

A bloodied cricket bat which was found at the scene has become the central piece of evidence in the unfolding murder investigation. City Press revealed that police are investigating different scenarios involving the bat – one of which is that her boyfriend, Pistorius, used it to viciously assault her. The police are also investigating two more possibilities: that Steenkamp may have used the bat in self-defence, or that Pistorius used it to break down the toilet door behind which Steenkamp was hiding from him.

A source told City Press, “The suspicion is that the first shot, in the bedroom, hit her in the hip. She then ran and locked herself in the toilet. She was doubled over because of the pain. He fired three more shots. She probably covered her head, which is why the bullet also went through her hand.

Steenkamp was still breathing and Pistorius tried to resuscitate her in the foyer,” the report continued. “Paramedics and police arrived on the scene and, minutes later, she was declared dead.”

City Press has published a colour graphic of what it believes unfolded at Pistorius’s home. It shows a male character, purported to be Pistorius, pointing a gun at her.
