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.

Since we have no reports of him being injured or bloodied, we can only assume that the person with the crushed skull and the bullet wounds suffered multiple attacks. You're lawyers, be logical.

Holy ****. There goes the "I thought it was an intruder" defense. That poor woman.

What the hell??? Pistorius had it made! He was an inspiration to the entire world. Watching him compete in the Olympics was amazing. Endorsements, fame, and wealth followed. Obviously something sinister was going on here. He cannot claim it was an accident by thinking she was an intruder....her skull was crushed after she was shot. Pistorius...may karma get you!

After accidentally shooting the victim through the bathroom door with a gun, a mouse came running out and he swung at it with the Cricket Bat but missed and once again accidentally hit the victim.

Intruder my ass. You don't need to beat your gf over the head multiple times to realize that it wasn't an intruder.

He shouldn't even be in the Olympics he had an affair advantage. He can't break an ankle or feel injuries under the thighs like the rest of the runners do. He shouldn't even be famous for that

Wow, he's a full blown psychopath. Don't know how he's going to explain the intruder theory now, seeing that you have to be pretty close to someone to bash their skull in.
