The first crime scene photos of ‘Blade Runner’ Oscar Pistorius – standing trial for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day – has surfaced, and it kinda supports Pistorius’ defense that her death was by accident.
In the bloody photos, one can see two bullet holes on the door of the toilet, a pool of blood and a blood trail leading to the stairs. This kinda supports Pistorius’ claim that he wasn’t wearing his artificial legs when he shot Reeva thinking that an intruder was in his house, hiding in the toilet.
Another photo shows a trail of blood down the stairs, which supports Pistorius’ other claim that he carried Reeva down the stairs in a effort to get help.
His lawyers are planning to use the photos to prove that their client’s killing of his girlfriend was an honest mistake. Pistorius had even admitted that he fired four shots into the bathroom that night.
He is still standing trial for murder.
