More details are emerging in the case of South African Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius and the murder of his girlfriend model, Reeva Steenkamp. Allegedly, illegal steroids and a bloody cricket bat were found in the home.
The paralympic athlete will be tested for the banned drug, possibly in anticipation of a possible defense claim that Pistorius acted in “roid rage.”
“Steroid drugs were found at Pistorius’s home together with evidence of heavy drinking,” a source told The Sun. “That’s why police have specifically ordered that he be tested for steroids.”
It’s not yet known whose blood was on the cricket bat, according to South Africa’s City Press. Investigators believe Pistorius may have bash Steenkamp with the bat, or she may have used it to defend herself, according to the paper.
“There was lots of blood on the bat,” a source is quoted as saying. “Forensic tests will show whose blood it was.”
A reality show, Tropika Island of Treasure featuring the model was aired in South Africa over the weekend. In one scene Steenkamp talked about having no regrets in life.
“I don’t have any regrets,” she says in the clip. “I think the way that you go out, not just your journey in life, but the way that you go out — you make your exit — is so important.”
“You either made an impact in a positive way or a negative way,” she says, “But just maintain integrity and maintain class.”
Steenkamp was shot four times according to reports.
