Oscar Pistorius

Bloody Cricket Bat

Found at Murder Scene

2/17/2013 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_Oscar-Pistorius_gettyA blood-spattered cricket bat is now the center of the investigation into the shooting death of Oscar Pistorius' model girlfriend ... this according to a newspaper in South Africa.

Cops are unsure if the bat was used by Reeva Steenkamp in self-defense or if Pistorius used it in his attack -- either directly hitting Steenkamp with it or in an effort to break down a door.

The City Press, a paper in South Africa, says that Steenkamp's skull was crushed in addition to the gunshot wounds. The City Press quotes a source as saying, "There was lots of blood on the bat. Forensic tests will show whose blood it was."

It was also reported Sunday that Pistorius' first call following the shooting was not to police, but rather his friend, Justin Divaris, who told The Mirror, "I said to him, ‘What are you talking about? I don’t understand you?’ He then repeated himself, ‘There has been a terrible accident, I shot Reeva.'"

Pistorius is due back in court next week.

He went full psychopathic rage mode on that girl. Someone else pointed out a great point on another thread, how he probably has resentment toward women, because of his mother's decision to cut his legs off, when he was young, as a result of the congenital deformity he was born with. So, yea, I'm thinking he had a deep-seated rage and resentment toward women, couple that with his inadequacy of being disabled, and probably not being able to take out on men, and there you have, the perfect recipe for a diseaster.

To women out there, beware of as*holes, but also beware of the really sweet, innocent men, who look like they couldn't harm a fly. These men are hiding something, and that's why they love to wear sheep's clothing. Every interview he did, he was always so meek, so repressed even. He looked like he had no personality. Big warning sign, although I could see how she could miss it. He was a typical Jekyll and Mr Hyde, or a wolf in sheep's clothing.

with any sport to be the best you have to bring out some type of anger that will push yourself to the next level. but u have to also turn that "button" off outside the practice field and during competition days.
that is called "Emotional iQ"

A source "with inside knowledge of the case" told Rapport that Steenkamp's skull had been "crushed", possibly by blows to the back of her head.

Apparently Oscar hit the girl with a golf club. When asked by police how many times he hit her he said "2....3.... ? I dunno...put me down for a 4."

I lost my respect for him when he got beat and the Paralympic games and couldn't take it like a man. I knew there was more to him than meets the eye.

Bloody cricket bat, crushed skull, shot 4 times through a bathroom door while sitting on the toilet. Evidence shows she was already spending the night there, not coming in as an intruder. She was wearing a nightie, had her overnight bag and ipod in the bedroom and the bed showed they had already slept there. Police were called there 2 hours before the shooting and neighboors heard yelling earlier. Can't see how it was an accident.

Obviously he used the bat on her head, and obviously he could see who it was when he did it. Maybe she ran in the bathroom to protect herself, and since he could no longer get at her with the bat, he shot through the door four times at her.


He is a rageaholic. This was no gun accident. This is someone who couldn't deal with another person except through violence. I am sure the blow to the head with the cricket bat could have done her in as well.


He is another one like Lance Armstrong who I never felt that excited for when he one. He doesn't seem to have the values of fairness and good sportsman ship in his attitude. That is a huge part of what sports is supposed to be about, not just showing off and beating someone else.


The sweeter and nicer the person is, the more they anger and provoke someone who is a loser on a power trip. Why she would stay there in a yelling match and then come back doesn't even make much sense.


She should have just left when the yelling started and not come back. I think she tried to hang on too hard. People with bad attitudes don't understand cooperation.


If someone only likes you for your good qualities, they don't really like you. Maybe he couldn't see her as human because he couldn't find anything wrong with her to compare himself to.
