Reports Swirl that Oscar Pistorius’ Girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was Shot Four Times through Bathroom Door, Also Claims that Steroids & Bloodied Cricket Bat Found in Home
Gun shots, steroids and bloodied cricket bats, oh my …
There are shocking new reports from Johannesburg, South Africa and the murder of Oscar Pistorius’ Girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. According to a CNN report, Reeva Steenkamp was shot four times through the bathroom door. We have to take this story with some skepticism as the account is from a South African official familiar with the case who was not authorized to release details to the media. However, if true, and obviously a crime scene investigation of Oscar Pistorius’ home could easily prove whether there are gun shots to the bathroom door, this would disprove the “intruder” defense. Oscar Pistorius has been charged with the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.

Model Reeva Steenkamp was shot four times through the bathroom door at the home of Olympian Oscar Pistorius, a South African official familiar with the case told CNN on Monday.
She was alive after she was shot and was carried downstairs by Pistorius, said the official, who was not authorized to release details to the media.
The details are the latest to emerge in the shooting death that has roiled the nation, and left South Africans asking what went so terribly wrong inside the upscale Pretoria home of the man nicknamed “Blade Runner” for his lightning-fast prosthetic legs.
Also, The Sun (pics) and Daily Mirror are reporting that police found steroids and a blood stained cricket bat at the home of Oscar Pistorius. Another piece of information that we have to take presently with a grain of salt, but if true, completely damning to the Blade Runner. According to South African sources, the discovery of the bloodied cricket bat emerged as police sources reportedly told South Africa’s independent City Press newspaper that Steenkamp’s skull had been “crushed”. Another source reportedly told the paper that “There was lots of blood on the bat.”

Cops are now probing a theory that Pistorius may have blasted Reeva in an explosion of fury caused by the performance-boosting steroids.
They are investigating whether murder suspect Pistorius was in the grip of “roid rage” — a side-effect of high doses of the outlawed drugs.
Officers who searched the 26-year-old’s home after lover Reeva was killed in the bathroom are said to have found steroids. Blood samples taken from Pistorius are being tested for the drugs.
A source close to the investigation said: “Steroid drugs were found at Pistorius’s home together with evidence of heavy drinking. That’s why police have specifically ordered that he be tested for steroids.”
