    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.

    Can I repost from just closed thread some possibly astute comments?

    Some intersting comments as interpretation of yesterday's proceedings. Not meant as anything definitive on the events themselves, only as clever interpretation.

    You know, last night I was thinking of the court proceedings of the day and I was wondering..why all the fuss about the fans?
    And then it all came to me.. I realized what was probably behind the one thing that has puzzled me the most during the trial.
    The one big question and that is: why did the defence change their story? why did the story change from what they said last year? why would they do that? Why?

    In the affidavit they said : "I woke up, went onto the balcony to bring the fan in and closed the sliding doors".
    And now..now they say he never went to the balcony. And that there were two fans. Why would they now change their story so
    that he never went onto the balcony? After all, it makes the story much worse.


    Here's my theory what happened:
    After the incident defence was coming up with a story, they needed an affidavit..
    BR:"We need a reason for you to go out of the room for a moment so that she has time to go to the toilet.."
    OP "Let's say I went downstairs to get something to drink..and then heard noise from the toilet"
    BR "No.. you wouldn't do that in the pitch black..and on your stumps..stairs and everything.
    What if..what if we say you went onto the balcony to bring the fan in..it was a hot night and so forth"
    And so they decided.

    That is the whole point of Nel's cross examination so far. He isn't nitpicking at irrelevant stuff, with every single element that he can prove is untrue in Oscar's statements he discredits him as a witness.

    I can't belief Oscar wants us to believe the police rearranged the room before taking photos...let's say they did move things. Why on earth would they pull the curtains more open? Especially when the light is still on...doesn't make sense...neither does his whole story.

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

    Yes my son also wears those type of tops for the gym :-)
    Did you see the picture of the top on its own on Lisa's blog ?
    The neckline in the picture which Gavel showed this morning ( which I have to say I couldn't bear to look at too closely ) looks very high compared to when it was just been held up for crime scene photo's . My gut feeling is still it could be back to front .
    We may hear Nel discuss the clothes in cross exam as I am sure he has a lot of other points to make .
    Sorry, quoting GBTaketwo from other thread.

    Nope, those particular vests do have high necks, I don't know why. Lol, if my son allows, will ask him to model for me

    Barry Bateman says some of the state's expert witnesses have been in court to hear the evidence, and consult with Nel.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/barrybateman

    Up until yesterday, I had the impression the judge was very self-effacing (maybe too much so). I changed my mind when she rebuked the court for laughing though. And made the junior attorney stand up and apologise for the ringing phone.

    I bet the other two people whose cell's went off later thanked their lucky stars she did not hear!
