GMA: Oscar Pistorius Bail Hearing

In the second day of the bail hearing new evidence and details surrounding the murder of model Reeva Steenkamp came to the surface. The chief investigator took the stand and revealed what he found in Oscar Pistorius’ home and why he thinks it’s murder. He said there is no way this could have been an accident

Forensics suggest that Pistorius was standing in the master bathroom when he shot Steenkamp through the door to a small powder room. She was crouched in a defensive position. A witness for the prosecution believes he put his prosthetic legs on before going after Steenkamp. Pistorius said he thought she was an intruder and tried to revive her.

The investigators also found two boxes of testosterone in Pistorius’ home. Pistorius’ representative said those were herbal supplements.

The prosecution pulled out witnesses that claim to have heard fighting between 3 and 4 a.m. They said they saw lights on in the home in the early hours of the morning that Steenkamp was killed.

This is just a bail hearing and there will be more detailed forensics and ballistics run in the investigation. There is reason to believe that Pistorius could be a flight risk.
