    I'm reading that the police had been called to the house just hours earlier and a neighbor is reporting that the victim was shot through a door. Doesn't sound even remotely "accidental" to me.

    From the article:

    At the defense's request, the chief magistrate delayed Pistorius' bail hearing until Tuesday and Wednesday. Prosecutors and defense lawyers agreed to keep Pistorius in a police holding cell, rather than transfer him to prison like most normal suspects. While Nasir acknowledged that could give them impression that the athlete was getting "preferential treatment," he agreed to it. Police have said they oppose Pistorius being freed on bail.

    In saying they'll seek a premeditated murder charge against Pistorius, prosecutors likely are claiming they have evidence that the athlete planned the killing ahead of time, said William Booth, a prominent defense lawyer from Cape Town. The charge, which carries a sentence of life in prison, also makes it more difficult for Pistorius to successfully apply for bail, Booth said, though it could be a challenge to get a conviction.

    … in South Africa, there is no jury system, leaving Pistorius face largely to the judge who will oversee his possible trial.

    A close friend, who asked not to be named, said they had received a call from Mr Pistorius soon after the shooting in the early hours of yesterday morning and were told by the athlete that there had been a tragic accident. They arrived soon after at Mr Pistorius’ home to find him with a bloody and unconscious Reeva Steenkamp. They were told she had been shot after the runner mistook her for an intruder.

    Police claimed they have evidence that Ms Steenkamp arrived at her boyfriend’s house on Wednesday evening, contradicting the notion that she surprised him during the night.

    Oscar Pistorius 'tried to resuscitate dying girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after shooting her four times': Blade Runner carried model downstairs after she was shot

    "Oscar Pistorius 'carried his dying girlfriend downstairs and tried to resuscitate her as he desperately attempted to save her life' it was claimed today.

    The 26-year-old allegedly cradled Reeva Steenkamp, who he allegedly shot four times, as he tried to stop her dying, performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the 29-year-old.
    It was reported that she was still breathing when paramedics and security guards rushed to the house.

    But paramedics were unable to revive her and she was pronounced dead at the scene."

    It appears that Oscar Pistorius has a history of violence......


    A senior police officer reacted with surprise yesterday morning when he heard of reports that Pistorius had shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his Silver Lakes home in Pretoria. He said that the Blade Runner should not have been allowed to own a firearm with his history of domestic violence.

    The senior officer, who asked not to be named, said in terms of the Domestic Violence Act, Pistorius should not have been allowed to possess any firearms. “Taking his past history of domestic violence in consideration, his firearm licences should’ve been reconsidered.”

    In 2009 Pistorius spent a night in police custody when he was arrested on charges of assaulting a 19-year-old woman in the same house as the one in which Steenkamp died. He was arrested on a Saturday night after he allegedly assaulted Cassidy Taylor-Memmory.

    From janberwocky's link above:

    Elsewhere, his temper has flared in private. Soon after Pistorius returned to South Africa from London last year, he allegedly threatened to break the legs of Quinton van der Burgh, a millionaire television producer.

    Here's some of the story:

    The gorgeous model was slain two hours after police were called to Pistorius’ upscsale home over a loud fight involving the couple, the daily newspaper Beeld reported Friday.

    RELATED: OSCAR PISTORIUS’ FAMILY RELEASES STATEMENT

    Steenkamp, 29, later fled to the bathroom in her boyfriend’s house before she was shot through the closed door with a 9-mm. handgun.

    She was struck in the head, chest, pelvis and hand, the newspaper said. Steenkamp and the Olympian began dating about four months ago.



    “I would just like to say, I have dated Oscar on/off for 5 YEARS, NOT ONCE has he EVER lifted a finger to me, made me fear for my life,” said Jenna Edkins.

    RELATED: PROSECUTORS WILL PUSH FOR A PREMEDITATED MURDER CHARGE AGAINST PISTORIUS

    “All I am saying is let him speak, let his side be heard without jumping to conclusions. Love and thoughts to Reeva’s family.”

    But another former ex called Pistorius a “player.” Samantha Taylor, who dated Pistorius before she said he left her for Steenkamp, said, “Oscar is certainly not what people think he is. We dated for a year-and-a-half.”



    She said Pistorius had a “way with women” and that Steenkamp was “probably not the only one he’s got.”

    Taylor’s father also weighed in on Pistorius’ dark side.


    “I have no sympathy for Oscar. I am just glad that my daughter is safe and that she got out of the relationship in time,” Henry Taylor was quoted in Beeld.

    Former soccer player Mark Batchelor revealed he received an angry call from Pistorius after the Olympian discovered Taylor had become involved with multimillionaire TV producer Quinton van den Bergh.

    Pistorius threatened to break Bergh’s legs and phoned the producer’s friends, including Batchelor, and patronizingly called him “boy” and swore at him, Batchelor told the Saturday Star.

    Before he called paramedics he called his best friend and told him he killed her. Spin that.

    Police find bloodied cricket bet at Pistorius home: report

    http://www.thenewage.co.za/83325-100...us_home_report

    Police have found a bloodied cricket bat at the home of Oscar Pistorius, a local newspaper reported on Sunday, following the Valentine's Day killing of his model girlfriend.

    The star Olympian and Paralympian athlete was charged on Friday with the murder of 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp who was shot dead at his luxury Pretoria home in a case that has gripped the world.

    Police sources close to the investigation told the independent City Press newspaper that Steenkamp's skull had been "crushed".

    "There was lots of blood on the bat," one source told the paper.

    Police are investigating whether the bat was used to assault Steenkamp, who was shot four times in the early hours of Thursday, or if she used it to defend herself.

    re: intruder story

    More information is coming in about the estate where Oscar Pistorius lives...In 2009, Silver Lakes Golf Estate was voted "the most secure estate in South Africa", according to its website.

    Offering a tranquil lifestyle "unparalleled in the Pretoria region", it has electrified fences, armed 24-hour security guards and manned controlled access.
