Oscar Pistorius Trial Update


Pretoria, South Africa (CNN) — Oscar Pistorius’s hard-hitting defense lawyers will try Monday to rattle one of the most unflappable witnesses to testify so far against the track star accused of murdering his girlfriend, cover girl Reeva Steenkamp.

A security guard at the estate where Pistorius lived — and Steenkamp died — produced some of the most potentially damning testimony against the athlete on Friday as the first week of the trial came to a close.

“Security, everything is fine,” Pistorius told Pieter Baba when Baba called to check reports of a shooting in the neighborhood.

But Baba could hear Pistorius was crying, the security shift supervisor said, and he knew everything was not fine.

Baba arrived at the house in time to witness Pistorius coming down the stairs carrying Steenkamp.

“I was so shocked, I couldn’t think for a few moments,” Baba testified.

Pistorius has pleaded not guilty to one charge of murder and a firearms charge associated with Steenkamp’s killing on Valentine’s Day 2013 as well as two gun indictments unrelated to her death.

Pistorius, 27, has admitted killing his 29-year-old girlfriend, but says it was a tragic error after he mistook her for an intruder.

Of the witnesses called so far, Baba was the earliest to arrive on the scene. He was still on the stand Friday and will be first up Monday, when the defense will have more time to cross-examine his story.

    Hi, Sal —

    Apparently I forgot the (GA) in my name when Express updated the site and we had to sign back on. I added it so that everyone will know I’m a south Georgia redneck Laugh !

    Hope you are well. So tired of this winter weather (of course mild compared to most other places). We had 78 degrees Monday and highs in the low 40s yesterday and today. I am ready for spring. How about you?

    “The evidence corroborates a central part of the prosecution’s case, which claims the couple had an argument before Pistorius intentionally shot Ms Steenkamp through a locked toilet door in his home. Pistorius says he fired after mistaking Steenkamp for an intruder.

    Ms Steenkamp was shot three times, being hit in the head, arm and hip from three bullets from a 9mm pistol through the locked bathroom door of Pistorius’ upscale villa on Valentine’s Day last year.”

    “Pistorius fired four shots at close range through a locked bathroom door and killed Reeva Steenkamp. This is not in dispute.”

    There is one thing I can’t get past in this case:

    If you wake up during the night because you believe you heard an intruder in your house…the first thing you would obviously do is to turn to the partner who shares your bed. If Reeva was not there wouldn’t he have called out for her before recklessly firing into a bathroom door?

    Where did OP think Reeva was if she wasn’t in their bed? Locked in a bathroom further to an argument isn’t a long stretch to the imagination vs the intruder defense theory.

    As well if you thought a stranger was locked in your bathroom wouldn’t you call the cops and stand guard over the bathroom as opposed to randomly firing away…personally I believe the witnesses that heard her scream then the gunshots, that says a lot right there.

    “There shall be no live broadcast of the evidence of Professor Saayman,” Masipa ruled. “That applies to Twitter.” Blog posts were also banned.

    Was it a gunshot or a cricket bat?

    “University of Pretoria pathologist Gert Saayman said the double-amputee sprinter shot Steenkamp with “Black Talon” hollow-point bullets, which mushroom open like a jagged flower on contact to cause maximum tissue damage.”

    Maybe its the time zone or the limited media coverage allowed in this case, but there doesn’t seem to be much coming out about this case. I know the prosecution is still presenting their case, but this guy is appearing to be a volatile, emotional train wreck.
