Things are looking even bleaker for Oscar Pistorius, the former Olympic Gold medalist sprinter who was charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. South Africa's City Press reported that a bloodied cricket bat was found in Pistorius' home. Steenkamp's skull was crushed as well, and the police are still trying to find out exactly what role did the bat played in the murder. As of now, this is what City Press' sources have as an account leading to the shooting:
Steenkamp was wearing her nightie at the time. When the police inspected Oscar's bedroom, they found her overnight bag and iPad on the floor. A holster for a 9mm pistol was found on Oscar's side of the bed.
The bedclothes were crumpled. "It was clear that both of them had slept in the bed," said a police source.
One cartridge was found in the bedroom and the police suspect Oscar may have "chased" her and fired the first shot before Steenkamp could lock herself inside the toilet.
"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," said a source.
Police are currently requesting for Pistorius' blood to be analyzed for a potential roid rage claim. His family is still sticking to the claim that the murder was an honest botched burglary defense. Henke Pistorius, Oscar's father said, "When you wake up in the middle of the night - and crime is so endemic in South Africa - what do you do if somebody is in the house? Do you think it's one of your family? Of course you don't."
