Pistorius: A Theory
Police think they know the actions which caused the death of Reeva Steenkamp at the hand of famed double amputee, Oscar Pistorius.
A bloodied cricket bat was found in his home. Police sources close to the investigation told South Africa’s independent City Press newspaper that Steenkamp’s skull had been “crushed.” “There was lots of blood on the bat,” one source said.
Since the investigation began on Thursday, police now believe that the event that happened on Valentine’s Day began on Wednesday evening. Neighbors reported a large commotion coming from the luxurious, South African Pistorius home.
They believe the first shot occurred in the bedroom where she was hit in the hip. She then ran into the bathroom where he shot her three more times.
“We have no doubt there is no substance to the allegation and that the state’s own case, including its own forensic evidence, strongly refutes any possibility of a premeditated murder or indeed any murder at all,” his uncle Arnold Pistorius said in a statement on Saturday.
His father, Henke Pistorius, 59, told Britain’s Sunday Telegraph that the family had “zero doubt” his son shot Steenkamp on instinct after mistaking her for an intruder.
Pistorius has hired a high profile team of lawyers as well as a respected pathologist.
