Witness in Oscar Pistorius Shooting Speaks & It Makes the Athlete Look Really Bad

This Just In 4

oscar pistoriusThings continue to spiral downward for Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympic runner who's being accused of intentionally murdering his gorgeous model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. He's currently undergoing a bail hearing in his home country of South Africa, and despite breaking down in "uncontrollable sobs" in the courtroom yesterday, it seems his story isn't adding up. A witness has now given their account of what they saw the night of Reeva's murder, and it doesn't make Pistorius look like a man who thought he was shooting an intruder.

According to The New York Times, prosecutors told the court that a witness heard "nonstop talking, like fighting" between the hours of 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. the night Reeva Steenkamp was shot. The BBC also claims that an officer took the stand in court today and said: "We have [the] statement of a person who said after he heard gunshots, he went to his balcony and saw the light was on. Then he heard a female screaming two-three times, then more gunshots." This is completely different from what Pistorius said yesterday -- that he thought an intruder was in his bathroom.

And making things even worse for the athlete, a detective also told the court that two bottles of testosterone and needles were found at Pistorius' home; he added that, after some investigation, he doubted that Pistorius was without his prosthetic legs like he originally said he was.

All in all, things aren't looking good for Oscar Pistorius. Of course, an actual trial still needs to take place, but if today is any indication of how things are going to go, I can't say I'd be surprised if he were found guilty. The death of Reeva Steenkamp is a tragedy any way you look at it, but I was really hoping this was an accident. Heartbreaking.

Do you think Oscar Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp on purpose?

While I lean toward his claim to be false, PLEASE, PLEASE DO SOME RESEARCH PRIOR TO POSTING!!!  The substance has been determined to be more than likely a natural testotrone product, legal and not actual testrone (not even sure why it was mentioned by the police anyway unless they are alleging roid rage).  I just wished you freaking bloggers would confirm and print facts, not third/fourth hand internet rumor.

I understand the "both" sides of the story and for the "press/bloggers" it's a much better story if he is guilty, same thing for the police if they crack the big case BUT I just wished these bloggers would provide some facts and not just hearsay, rumor and opinion.  It is amazing how many people would read this "blog" and attribute it to an actual news story..........but of course fact checking, verifying source information is kind of like work, and that is not going to happen for most of the bloggers on this site...................I am so disapoint it's ridic............LOL
