    "The suspicion is that the first shot, in the bedroom, hit her in the hip," one source was quoted as saying. "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."

    Some articles imply there was a lot of blood on the bat, while others say there were traces.

    "Detectives are working on two other theories concerning the bat: that it was either used to break down the door of the bathroom where she hid, or that she used it to defend herself against Mr Pistorius, South Africa's City Press reported. One bullet cartridge was found in the champion sprinter's bedroom and police are looking at whether he "chased" his girlfriend and fired the first shot before she locked herself in the bathroom and he fired three more through the door, the paper said."]Detectives are working on two other theories concerning the bat: that it was either used to break down the door of the bathroom where she hid, or that she used it to defend herself against Mr Pistorius, South Africa's City Press reported.

    The latest story in the media is that Reeva was shot once in the hip in the bedroom and the other three shots were in the bathroom. Two shooting locations PLUS a weapon that must be used in close quarters?? Intruder, my foot! MOO of course.

    The New Age article linked by squeaky mentions their source as this local news media: City News. Here is a link to a graphic at their site with a timeline and description of the scene.

    Sorry, I also just want to add that this happened in the midst of a campaigne for "violence against women" in protest of the rape and murder of a teenager named Anene Booysen.It was called Black Friday and all women were to wear black on the Friday. Reeva was a supporter of the cause. This was not lost on the SA public.

    "There were three gunshots and a woman's screams. Almost ten minutes later there were three more shots," the wife of a neighbour who rushed to the scene reportedly said.

    From what I've read:

    Police were notifed of loud shouting, arguements at Pistorius's home 2 hours prior to Reeva's death

    She was shot 4 times in the head, hand, hip, chest while she was in th ebathroom

    Now there are reports of a bolldy cricket bat and Reeva's skull was hit several times, opening up her skull

    It's always a tough thing to have a solid relationship between two high profile celebs

    A major South African newspaper is reporting that a bloodied cricket bat found at Oscar Pistorius' home supports the charge he killed his girlfriend of four months.

    The City Press cites sources close to the investigation who said the skull of 29-year-old model Reeva Steenkamp was "crushed" when police arrived at the scene of the Valentine's Day murder.

    Miss Steenkamp was said to be still breathing as security guards, neighbours and Mr Pistorius' family gathered, and he tried to give her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

    But once police and paramedics arrived on the scene, she was declared dead.

    According to a source cited by City Press, Miss Steenkamp was wearing a nightdress, an overnight bag was found at the house and her iPad was on the bedroom floor.

    "It was clear that both of them had slept in the bed," the source added.

    The holster of a 9mm pistol similar to the weapon recovered by police was found on one side of the bed, the paper said. A bullet cartridge was also reportedly found in the bedroom and police are investigating whether Mr Pistorius fired one shot then "chased" Miss Steenkamp to the bathroom.

    "The suspicion is that the first shot, in the bedroom, hit her in the hip," one source was quoted as saying. "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."

    Police asked for blood taken from Mr Pistorius to be tested for steroids, City Press claimed, in anticipation that his defence team might claim he acted in "roid rage" – an aggressive condition associated with taking large doses of performance-enhancing drugs.

    This, makes me sick, and is likely a very unwise decision by Nike and Oakley execs.

    JMO

    Oscar Pistorius has 'overwhelming support' from fans says agent

    Nike, Oakley said to be maintaining sponsorship deals with sprinter until legal verdict reached

    So, the bathroom door was riddled with holes.

    So is Pistorius' story, IMO.

    The bedroom’s en-suite bathroom door was riddled with holes; a pistol’s holster was found by Pistorius’ bed and a gun cartridge was on the floor.

    A nation fed up with ‘femicide’ shuns Pistorius

    GEOFFREY YORK
    JOHANNESBURG — The Globe and Mail


    A heavily bloodied cricket bat, found at the luxury home of Mr. Pistorius after the shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp on Thursday morning, suggests he may have used the bat “to viciously assault her,” according to a report in a respected South African newspaper, City Press, citing three unnamed sources close to the police investigation.

    The newspaper reported that Ms. Steenkamp’s skull had been “crushed”; that one shot had been fired from the athlete’s pistol in the bedroom before the remaining three shots were fired through a bathroom door; and that the “intruder” claim was impossible because there were no signs of forced entry and because both of them had slept in the bedroom before the shooting

    Mr. Pistorius and his family have assembled a crack team of high-priced lawyers, a top pathologist, and even a well-known London spin doctor – former British tabloid editor Stuart Higgins, whose clients have included British Airways and top English soccer clubs.

    Much of the backlash is sparked by growing reports that Mr. Pistorius had a history of anger issues, a fascination with guns, and several alleged incidents of threats and physical confrontations involving women and men. He had applied for licences for seven guns, including a .223 semi-automatic rifle, according to the South African newspaper Beeld.

    Roughly translated from Afrikaans to English, from The Beeld:

    Regarding the layout of the bathroom, again, roughly translated from The Beeld:

    All four shots Paralympic hero Oscar Pistorius allegedly fired at Reeva Steenkamp was designed which she sat on the toilet.

    All four shots hit her.

    The toilet is on the left side of the en suite bathroom. The shots were fired through the door of the bathroom.

    This means that Pistorius had shot in an oblique direction to could hit her, a source told Beeld said

    The source denied allegations that Steenkamp with a cricket bat assaulted.

    According to him, the bullet Steenkamp hit in the head caused the wound to her head and not an assault with a bat.

    Kenny Oldwage, Pistorius's attorney, told Beeld that the family had already started investigating team, but would not elaborate on who it is.

    He and Adv. Barry Roux SC will be assisted by another a top pathologist Dr. Reggie Perumal, and other experts.

    Stuart Higgins, a British spin doctor for including British Airways, swimmer Mark Foster and the Manchester United soccer team, will handle media relations. He is a oudredakteur of the British Sun.
