Things continue to spiral downward for Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympicrunner who's being accused of intentionally murdering his gorgeous model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. He's currently undergoing a bail hearing in his home country of South Africa, and despite breaking down in "uncontrollable sobs" in the courtroom yesterday, it seems his story isn't adding up. A witness has now given their account
of what they saw the night of Reeva's murder, and it doesn't make
Pistorius look like a man who thought he was shooting an intruder.
According to The New York Times, prosecutors told the court that a witness heard "nonstop talking, like fighting" between the hours of 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. the night Reeva Steenkamp was shot. The BBC
also claims that an officer took the stand in court today and said: "We
have [the] statement of a person who said after he heard gunshots, he
went to his balcony and saw the light was on. Then he heard a female screaming two-three times,
then more gunshots." This is completely different from what Pistorius
said yesterday -- that he thought an intruder was in his bathroom.
And making things even worse for the athlete, a detective also told the court that two bottles of testosterone and needles were found at Pistorius' home; he added that, after some investigation, he doubted that Pistorius was without his prosthetic legs like he originally said he was.
All in all, things aren't looking good for Oscar Pistorius. Of
course, an actual trial still needs to take place, but if today is any
indication of how things are going to go, I can't say I'd be surprised
if he were found guilty. The death of Reeva Steenkamp is a tragedy any way you look at it, but I was really hoping this was an accident. Heartbreaking.
Do you think Oscar Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp on purpose?
My only question would be why would you shoot through a door , not seeing who is on the other side, makes no sense. and why would a would be intruder hide in the bathroom In the end, only the jury will decide.
No clue yet. A lot of the 'evidence' was shown to be rubbish in the cross examination. There was no testosterone or steroids in his house. The person who said they heard arguments was a lot further away than they said.
Considering the lead investigator has been investigated for seven counts of attempted murder I think they have probably fouled this case up beyond repair. First this investigator said he had to be wearing his legs according to ballistics then back tracked by saying they cannot rule out Pistorius version of events based on the evidence.
