Bloodied cricket bat found in Oscar's home

Pretoria – The latest development into the investigation surrounding the shooting death of model Reeva Steenkamp has centred on a bloodied cricket bat found in the home of her boyfriend and alleged attacker, Oscar Pistorius.

Eyewitness News reported that City Press alleged that the cricket bat was at the centre of the murder investigation against the star athlete.

Police were investigating two possibilities: that the cricket bat was used by Steenkamp to defend herself or that Pistorius used it to break down the bathroom door to get access to where Steenkamp was hiding.

According to police sources, the first shot was fired in the bedroom and that the other three were fired at her through the bathroom door.

A friend of Pistorius, Justin Divaris, told the Mirror Online that Pistorius had called him first after the shooting.

Divaris said Pistorius was shocked at his actions and was barely making sense over the phone.

Pistorius was said to break down frequently during his court appearance on Friday and family described his emotional state as “numb” with shock and grief.

What about him hitting her with the bat? Wouldn't that be another possibility?
