    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

    Admin/Mod Note

    Thank you all for participating! This forum has a special dynamic - good sleuthers, intelligent discussions, though provoking opinions expressed ... it makes it enjoyable to read & moderate. We sincerely thank you for that!

    The last few days I've been disappointed to see a few exchanges begin to deteriorate - escalating from a lack of tolerance for differing opinions. Of course opinions are going to differ when a bunch of intelligent, independent thinkers have a discussion. That's a good thing, not a bad thing. I understand the passion but the purpose should not be to change anyone else's mind. Respect your fellow posters and make a conscious effort to be tolerant. Please note that passive-aggressive, snarky, personalized posts will not be tolerated and, beginning immediately, will result in a loss of posting privileges.

    Thanks all.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Val how did you post the images of the door frame, left side where the tiles were beaten off? Did you paste a link or how did you do that?

    re Twitter stuff

    previously posted by Gavel Rash
    Twitter sent by Reeva Steenkamp .....Can any one explain how she sent this....see the time stamp?

    "@candymck @SandtonMini I'm there like a bear!!! Yayyyy!!!! X
    5:41am - 14 Feb 13"

    https://mobile.twitter.com/reevasteenkamp
    If you match up the times, that appears to be one of those non identified gprs connections made from RS's cell... bbm...:

    http://juror13lw.wordpress.com/

    15:41:54 – Incoming voice call from 4949 (Oscar) – 93 seconds – tower closest to Oscar’s house.

    15:54:27 – Incoming voice call from 0020 (Oscar) – 113 seconds – tower closest to Oscar’s house.

    17:12:57 – Incoming voice call from 0020 (Oscar) – 63 seconds – tower closest to Oscar’s house.

    Some more GPRS activity

    17:44:54 – Outgoing call to 0020 (Oscar) – 144 seconds – she had moved, different tower now.

    For the remainder of the day there were only GPRS connections made by the device.
    One thing I came across from checking the twitter link you posted https://mobile.twitter.com/reevastee...02849610141696 was image 16/50, literally sent chills down my spine when I read it. Whether it was sent from OP? I don't know how to check that far back, sorry.:/

    These broken tiles are bugging me. They are immediately around the door so was he banging there to scare her or banging there trying to get in to her?

    He was acting out. He had her trapped, and he was acting out. He could have broken down the door anytime he wanted to. After all, he had already broken through his bedroom doors.

    The force of the bat hit on the right side of the door would have created an opposing force on the tiles where the door hinges were screwed into the frame.

    Killer knows he hit the door with great force.

    Killer's story MUST explain why.

    Claiming that he needed to bash the door with a bat seems like an incredibly unlikely explanation for how to get into the toilet stall.

    Think about it. If he had a gun, he could have shot the lock, or simply slammed the door with his shoulder. Hacking at the door with a cricket bat is not an effective way to break a door.

    Evidence points to Reeva running into the bathroom, screaming for help. Killer tries to get her to shut up. He's helpless to stop her screams for help with woke up several neighbors. So he threatens her by hitting the door with the bat.

    She screams more.

    The only way to stop her screaming is by getting the gun. She screams even louder and he shoots her. She falls, screaming even louder and in terror. He re-aims, and shoots until the screaming stops with the last head shot.

    I've been poking around online trying to find more details about OP's previous relationships and life in general, and found this article below that I hadn't seen before.

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-n...ed-car-1740073

    I want to be careful not to give 100% weight to all of these articles, being that they are not evidence and merely just things we are reading online.

    But since we have been discussing whether or not it seems like he has the ability to be violent, I have to say that putting all of this stuff together (if most of it is indeed true)... it sure does seem possible to me that he could turn violent and pretty quickly.


    -He has gotten way out of hand with cars, boats and speed (tickets, accidents, serious injuries, etc)..not just with himself, but with others in his vehicles.

    -He was very carelessly playing with a gun in a packed, public restaurant and it went off.

    -He shot a gun through an open sunroof.

    -With his ex-girlfriend Vicky Miles, he admits they endured a fiery relationship which often ended up in screaming rows.

    -Sam Taylor testified to him yelling at her and other women in their lives.

    -He had an assault case against him from that Taylor girl in 2009 after he angrily slammed a door and broke it, hitting her foot.

    -We've heard of his outbursts on the track after losing.

    -We just saw that article earlier from Gina Myers' dad saying that he was overwhelming with Reeva. He would not leave her alone.

    -June Steenkamp did an interview where she recounted how Reeva and Oscar had been fighting with each other a lot, according to her daughter.

    People like this who live on the edge and constantly can't keep their anger and emotions in check are sometimes a time bomb just waiting to go off. Just speculation... and just talking about possibilities only here.

    BBM... True!

    I suppose we will hear that there is only one set of keys to the toilet, hence the need to break the door down.

    Thanks for posting this Val. I'm still going through the photos and Reeva's captions but it is clear that this lady was a rock star! She was living life and having a great time! No wonder Oscar was so jealous and controlling; but there was no controlling Reeva! LOL!!! Ugh, if he had just had more confidence in her love and desire to only be with him they would have had a blast! But that is not how the romance ended...
