    We make replicas of marks using a rubbery substance in liquid format which is smeared into the area and substance takes on the format of the impact mark you are trying to cast, Brown says.

    She drafted her first report without the axe; the second she had had access to it.

    Captain Brown has the axe in her hand.

    The area one would use as the handle was 34cm in length; the axe eye (butt) was 4.8cm; from butt to the top edge 15cm; sharp edge 3.4cm.

    Green area is the axe head; from sharp edge to where the handle starts is 8.5cm.

    Bottom part of butt up to the handle is 1.6cm.

    The axe weighed 1.17kg.

    She also examined the knife. Exhibit 2 handed to her.

    The blade length is 19cm; exposed blade 18.3cm from tip to plastic handle

    Impact marks B, D and H were caused by a sharp edged tool. She says she found markings in these impact marks.

    When she visited the scene with the tools in her possession, she matched it with the marks.

    I suspect Capt. Brown is going to be a very good witness. Botha likes detail, and he's certainly getting plenty of that.

    Brown refers to her photos- 1 impact mark with damage consistent with controlled sharp edge at front entrance door way
    Brown: fig 1.1 shows the area I am referring to which I marked B
    1.1.2 contains pictures depicting figure 1 to figure 31
    Fig 2: same picture taken from adjacent wall to entrance area depicting impact mark with damage (same mark)
    Fig3. same area taken close up
    Fig 4. Same damage and impact mark, I would say close up in the middle of the mark
    Fig 5 of the same impact damage mark more to the entrance side of the mark

    of the axe being held into the sharp edge damage of that particularly impact and damage mark
    Fig 9- same impact and damage of B with a close up of the blade of the axe connecting into the damage mark
    Fig 10-close up of the top part of the axe held into the sharp edge damage area marked by me

    I wonder if she's going to be able to estimate the height (or anything else) of the person who swung the axe.

    Fig 11- same picture top part of axe head being placed into the damaged area

    Fig 12,13, 14, 15 and 16 all photos of the same damage with the axe blade in the picture
    Brown Fig 15 - the handle of the axe is pointing in opposite direction

    Brown:when I physically matched the axe into the impact and damage mark B I couldnt determine whether axe was definitely thecause
    of such marks or not the cause of such marks thus it is possible but also could not be possible
