Pistorius Cricket Bat: Rumors Of Bloody Evidence Abound

By: Amanda Crum - February 18, 2013

Oscar Pistorius is facing some serious charges after the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last week, despite initial reports that the Olympics star accidentally shot her thinking she was an intruder.

Details of that night are sketchy at best because police don’t want to say anything while the case is open, but rumors are flying from those who claim to have police “sources” and say that a cricket bat covered in blood was found at the scene. There have also been reports that Steenkamp was found with her skull crushed, but most reports agree that she was apparently shot through a bathroom door.

As with any high-profile case, the stories don’t seem to match up just yet. Reports are being printed without aid from the local police, so for now there aren’t many solid facts to go on. Unfortunately for the athlete, it appears that early stories about the shooting being an accident don’t hold up.

“The sources agreed that the state had a ‘rock-solid’ case against the popular athlete,” South African news source City Press said.

If Pistorius pleads guilty to the charges of murder brought against him, he could face at least 20 years in prison.

    The most telling indication is an immediate dismissal of the “intruder” claim and him being charged with premeditated murder instead of “plain” murder – there MUST have been some solid evidence to support this. The bloody cricket bat and a cracked skull would say he was well aware this was not an intruder. Not sure about the SA legal definition of “premeditated”.
