    Bloodied Cricket Bat Found at Pistorius home

    Exclusive

    " Skull Crushed "

    A bloodied cricket bat is the central piece of evidence in the unfolding murder investigation into ReevaSteenkamp’s death.
    City Press can reveal that police are investigating different scenarios involving the bat – one of which is that her boyfriend, Olympic hero Oscar 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.
    We can further reveal that police specifically requested that Pistorius’ blood be tested for drugs and steroids.

    Steenkamp’s skull was “crushed” and police tests on the cricket bat and her body will reveal if the injuries were caused by blows to the back of her head.
    “There was lots of blood on the bat. Forensic tests will show whose blood it was,” said a source with inside knowledge of the case.
    City Press spoke to three sources close to the high-profile investigation, which has gripped the world’s imagination. They all ruled out the possibility that Pistorius could have mistaken Steenkamp for an intruder. The police found no evidence of forced entry.


    Pistorius is being held at the Brooklyn Police Station in Pretoria and will apply for bail on Tuesday. He has denied murdering Steenkamp.
    On the same day, a memorial service will be held for the 29-year-old Steenkamp in Port Elizabeth.
    The sources agreed that the state had a “rock-solid” case against the popular athlete.
    Said a criminal lawyer with 30 years’ experience: “He could possibly get a 20-year sentence instead of life if he pleads guilty.”
    If a court finds him guilty and sentences him to life imprisonment, he will only be able to apply for parole after 25 years, when he will be 51.


    Based on in-depth interviews with our sources, City Press has pieced together Thursday morning’s fateful events that claimed the life of Steenkamp, a popular model and reality star who had been dating Pistorius since November last year.
    Pistorius’ father received a call from his son just after 3.20am on Thursday, asking him to come to his house. When his family arrived, Oscar was carrying Steenkamp’s body down the stairs from his bedroom to the entrance hall. Her head and arms were “dangling”.


    He allegedly told his sister, Aimee, that something terrible had happened and that he had mistaken Steenkamp for a burglar. The police questioned Aimee and took a sworn statement from her.


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


    Steenkamp was shot in the head, hip, arm and hand.


    In anticipation of a possible argument that he experienced “roid rage” – extremely aggressive behaviour associated with taking large doses of steroids – the police insisted that the athlete’s blood be tested for any foreign substances.
    On Friday, Oscar’s family and management released a statement in which they disputed the murder “in the strongest terms”.
    “These are now live and active legal proceedings which must be allowed to take their course through the process of proper investigation by the police, evidence-gathering and through the local South African judicial system,” the statement read.

    Oscar described Steenkamp’s death as a “terrible, terrible tragedy”.

    Woman saw Reeva Steenkamp die: Pistorius beckoned her to his home at 3 a.m.



    Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp: Did he kill his model girlfriend on purpose or did he think she was an intruder?

    Oscar Pistorius’ friend arrived at his house just in time to see Reeva Steenkamp die, making her a witness in this highly publicized murder case. The unnamed woman, who is a lawyer, said she was called by the very emotional Olympic star, who asked her to come to his house around 3 a.m., according to iolnews, on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013.


    She arrived just as Pistorius was carrying the blood soaked body of Reeva down the stairs. The man they call the Blade Runner put Reeva down on the floor, where both Pistorius and this unnamed woman tried to revive her. When paramedics arrived, the duo stepped aside and the medical personal worked on Reeva, but they could not save her.


    Police have also removed a bloody cricket bat from the Pistorius home. Police are investigation whether the bat was used to assault Reeva or if she used it to defend herself, according to Google News. Police theorize that Pistorius fired a shot at Reeva in the bedroom, which hit her in the hip. From there they believe she ran to hide in the bathroom, where Pistorius then put three more bullets in his model girlfriend.


    The possibility that Pistorius was suffering from “roid rage” has surfaced in the media. Did Pistorius take steroids? If he did was his alleged rage a result of the substance which is well known to cause fits of rage. This will most likely be addressed during the investigation.


    Pistorius told his friend that he thought that Reeva was an intruder after he heard noise coming from the bathroom. This is when he claims that he pointed his gun in that direction and shot four times. He maintains that this was a mistake he made that resulted in Reeva's death.


    He claims he didn’t know it was Reeva in the bathroom, although security video show that she arrived at his house hours before this incident, so he should have been well aware she was in the house. The video from the cameras show Reeva arriving at his home at 6 p.m., so she had been there since the evening before this shooting.


    Pistorius continues to say he never meant to kill Reeva and that he thought that she was an intruder. His family is standing by his story and they “strongly refute” the allegations of premeditated murder, according to iolnews today. Pistorius uncle, Arnold Pistorius, said yesterday that the Olympic star is “numb with shock as well as grief.” Since Pistorius and Reeva started dating in November, the two had become very close, his uncle shared.
    Woman saw Reeva Steenkamp die: Pistorius beckoned her to his home at 3 a.m. - Hartford Top News | Examiner.com





    A strange timeline for that murder.

    6pm Steenkamp arrives at Pistorius home.

    Sometime before 3am he shoots Reeva Steenkamp.

    3am he calls over to his house his neighbour and friend, a female lawyer, who claims to see Pistorius carrying Steenkamp still breathing down stairs.
    She then assists Pistorius in giving CPR to Steenkamp.

    3.20 am, Pistorius calls his family, who then arrive some time later.
    On arriving, Pistorius' family claims to have watched Pistorius carry Steenkamp down the stairs.

    Some time after that the paramedics arrive, take over from Pistorius, but declare Steenkamp dead a few minutes later.

    At least 20 minutes have elapsed between the time that Steenkamp was shot and her death.

    Probably closer to forty minutes if you factor in the minutes in between

    a) shooting Steenkamp and calling the neighbour over, (3 minutes or so)
    b) the time it took for Pistorius' family to arrive after the 3.20 am call, (say 10 minutes)

    c) plus the time elapsed after their arrival and that of the medics' (say 5 minutes)
    d) then add in the last few minutes between their arrival and her death (3 minutes)

    A total of 41 minutes at least from when Steenkamp got shot until she died.

    The medics were only present in the last few minutes.

    The conflicting statements made by the mystery woman neighbour/lawyer/friend and Pistorius' family about witnessing Pistorius carrying Steenkamp down the stairs.

    Both separate parties claimed to have seen that, both parties arriving at the scene more than 20 minutes apart.

    Impossible.

    So Pistorius and his family/associates not only colluded and lied about the timing of events and the events themselves, but also delayed in calling medical help for Steenkamp.

    Is OJ Simpson's lawyer still around?

    The cricket bat probably won't fit in Pistorius's hand.

    Took a stroke at the ball but hit a low-flying seagull instead. Happens all the time.

    I think it was after.

    Just to make sure, the bullets hadn't worked, so, back to basics.

    It's now been revealed they found steroids in the house as well.

    So he's a drug cheat as well, still losing his Olympic medal will be the least of his worries.

    A few jokes.
    New evidence has been found outside the Pistorius home that completely acquits him of his girlfriend's murder.

    Footprints.
    She didn't notice Oscar sneaking up behind her. It was the silence of the limbs.
    Oscar Pistorius. Not the first South African with a race problem.
    Oscar Pistorius has murdered his girlfriend.

    Proof that even a man with no legs has a better shot than Fernando Torres.
    Absolutely shocking news from South Africa.

    White man arrested for murder.

    The timeline for the murder isn't very clear from press reports, here's another snippet;

    Blade Runner’s best friend has told how he received a phone call moments after Reeva Steenkamp had been shot dead and a distraught Oscar Pistorius later crying ‘My baba, I’ve killed my baba. God take me away.’
    Before the Paralympic medallist called the emergency services he phoned Justin Divaris, 27, at 3.55am to tell him what had happened.
    ‘I said to him, “What are you talking about?” He then repeated himself – “There has been a terrible accident, I shot Reeva”,’ he told the Sunday People.
    By the time the businessman had rushed to the athlete's luxury Pretoria home it had already been sealed off by police, but Mr Divaris described seeing the model 'covered in blankets and towels'.

    Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

    The only one's with an unbiased account to give of the timeline will be the security guards who heardthe shots etc and the ambulance crew.

    So far, it looks as if there was a considerable delay between the moment the last shot was fired and the ambulance called, then Reeva's death.

    He called his close pal on the phone, then called over his lawyer/friend/neighbour, then called his parents, who all were there with the still breathing Reeva when the ambulance and/or security arrived.

    Crazy!

    Mother of model shot dead in Blade Runner's house demands answers as final moments of Reeva's life are reconstructed in grisly newspaper CARTOON
    18 February 2013


    The family of slain model Reeva Steenkamp have begged Oscar Pistorius to 'tell the truth' about the shooting when he appears in court tomorrow - as they prepare to bury her 600 miles away.

    The 29-year-old's family, who are holding her funeral in Port Elizabeth at the same time as the Blade Runner appears in court charged with murder, demanded to know why their 'beautiful angel' was blasted to death with his 9mm gun.

    June Steenkamp, Reeva's mother said: 'All we want are answers ... answers as to why this had to happen, why our beautiful daughter had to die like this?'

    Police investigating the killing are focusing on Reeva's iPad amid concerns she received an early-hours message that may have sparked a row.

    But the mystery of her final moments deepened after the tragedy was recreated in a controversial 'cartoon' strip in South Africa.

    The bizarre images suggest the model was shot in the hip in Pistorius' bedroom before being attacked and seeking refuge in the bathroom, sitting on the toilet seat.

    Reeva was reportedly still chatting with an ex boyfriend while into the new relationship with Oscar.

    The chappy in question;



    Francois Hougaard


    Rep. SA rugby player.


    That probably blew him out, he was somewhat of a control freak, heaps of guns, security-heavy home, tantrums when things went wrong,...and so on.
    He nearly shot his pal Kevin Lerena two weeks before,....hmmmm.

    Here's a few banners to follow up,...search...

    Was Oscar Pistorius jealous of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp’s ex boyfriend?
    Jealous? Did Oscar Pistorius try to use a cricket bat on his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp?

    I would simply guess that she received an Valentines SMS from someone or an email or what have you that was her ex, and he shot her in the head. Fairly simple.
