Steroids reportedly found in Oscar Pistorius’s Home | Speculation That He Might Have Killed Girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in “Steroid Rage”

Investigations into the death of Reeva Steenkamp, the girlfriend of South African athlete Oscar Pistorius have revealed that steroids were found in his home where the unfortunate incident occured on Thursday 14th February 2013.

South African police are investigating whether Steenkamp’s murder could be connected to the use of performance-boosting steroids. City Press reports that the Police have asked for blood taken from Pistorius to be tested for steroids, in anticipation that his defence team might claim he acted in “roid rage” – an aggressive condition associated with taking large doses of performance-enhancing drugs.

Also, a bloodied cricket bat which was found at the scene has become the central piece of evidence in the unfolding murder investigation. City Press revealed that police are investigating different scenarios involving the bat – one of which is that her boyfriend, Pistorius, used it to viciously assault her. The police are also investigating two more possibilities: that Steenkamp may have used the bat in self-defence, or that Pistorius used it to break down the toilet door behind which Steenkamp was hiding from him.

The Police have also dismissed the theory that Pistorius mistook Steenkamp for a burglar. She was in her nightgown at the time of the incident, indicating she had been in the house long before the shots were fired. Also, neighbours claimed they heard argument coming from his home earlier in the evening. She was shot in the head, hand, hip and arm, and her skull was reportedly fractured.

A source told City Press, “The suspicion is that the first shot, in the bedroom, hit her in the hip. She then ran and locked herself in the toilet. She was doubled over because of the pain. He fired three more shots. She probably covered her head, which is why the bullet also went through her hand.

Pistorius called his father soon after 3.20am on Thursday and asked him to come to the house. When the family arrived, Pistorius was allegedly carrying Steenkamp down the stairs, her head and arms “dangling”.

Steenkamp was still breathing and Pistorius tried to resuscitate her in the foyer,” the report continued. “Paramedics and police arrived on the scene and, minutes later, she was declared dead.”

City Press has published a colour graphic of what it believes unfolded at Pistorius’s home. It shows a male character, purported to be Pistorius, pointing a gun at her.

It has also emerged that sportswear brand Nike, one of the athlete’s main sponsors, has no plans to use Pistorius in future ad campaigns.

He will appear in court again today and if the court finds him guilty and sentences him to life imprisonment, he will only be able to apply for parole after 25 years, when he will be 51.

        Great man ko, Mad man in. This is what happens when egos get out of control. He was sure he would get away with it. When he gets to prison, his fellow inmates will introduce him to the pain and terror this girl must have felt in her final hours.
        As for ladies, please shine eye well. If he raises his hands even as a joke,get the hell out.

      Do not believe anything you read about anybody good or bad. . Celebrates are not role models, anybody whose income depends solely on how people perceive him or her can never be a role model, its a life of pretense. The truth is without Jesus you are just a tool in the devil’s hands.

    • Benson February 19, 2013 at 8:23 AM

      Please conduct a mental status examination on him.

    • hammock February 19, 2013 at 8:35 AM

      He should be charged with 1st degree murder. He’s gonna learn!

    • Peachy_mo February 19, 2013 at 8:47 AM

      hmm…may her soul rest in peace! This is just sad! Kudos to city Press it did a good job of circulating information regarding this! I guess we’ve learnt a lesson from this: be wary of suspicious behavior…but then, only Allah can save/protect us from evil!

    • Caligula February 19, 2013 at 9:27 AM

      God dey! You do the crime, be ready to do the time buddy! If he killed her intentionally and kept shooting her like that, I hope he rots in hell. Freakn animal

    • Sexxie February 19, 2013 at 9:28 AM

      Omg! Are there real sports men left? So he made history thanks to steroids…well, he’ ll face the consequences now. What a cruel way to die by the hands of someone she loved and professed love to! The act was premeditated indeed, it wasn’t a rage, if it was, he would have called for help after hitting her wt the bat & she may have bn alive today. May God forgive him. I pray God comforts Reeva’s family & may her soul rest in perfect peace, amen.

    • Caligula February 19, 2013 at 9:30 AM

      He’s a piece of shit! Bet he thought he was gonna get away with it. Can’t believe i believed his explanation and was actually defending him.. I Just played the scenario above in the Article, makes sense

    • G February 19, 2013 at 10:03 AM

      Has no-one stopped to think that he was not a “great athlete” – he was a cheat; he was pumped up on ‘roids! (Just like Lance Armstrong)

    • Rukky February 19, 2013 at 10:23 AM

      Moral of the day: don’t date men with anger problems…May her soul rest in peace

    • Omo1 February 19, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      How painful! All i can try to picture is the thoughts on the mind of his girlfriend while all this was going on..such a horror. God will save us from evil men

    • Gbemmy February 19, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      So lance Armstrong was right afterall, all athletes take some form of performance boosters

    • Poshilla! February 19, 2013 at 11:08 AM

      ABEG DIS MAN IS A PURE MURDERER! HE SHLDNT EVEN BE GIVEN PAROLE AT ALL! NONSENSE!

      • Modele February 20, 2013 at 7:57 PM

        20.02.13 Updates-For all the ignorant people jumping on the bandwagon, WHAT WAS FOUND IN HIS BEDROOM WAS NOT STERIOD BUT A HERBEL SUPPLEMENT WHICH IS NOT EVEN A BAND SUBSTANCE. ALSO THE PROSECUTION RECKONED THERE WAS NO SIGN OR INDICATION THAT REEVA WAS ASSAULTED OR TERRIFIED FOR HER LIFE B4 THE SHOOTING AND THE WITNESS THAT SAID HE/SHE WAS HEARING ARGUEMENTS LIVES 600 METERS AWAY FROM OSCARS’ AND WAS NOT EVEN SURE IF THE VOICES WERE THAT OF REEVA AND OSCAR’S. PLS GET ALL YOUR FACTS RIGHTS B4 PASSING A GUILTY VERDICT ON THIS GUY IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION.

    • Ezinne V February 19, 2013 at 12:50 PM

      This is just a rlly sad news …if it truely happend as city press says,then he deserves evry punishment given to him..but if not,may God help him

    • BubblyBliss February 19, 2013 at 1:40 PM

      This man is mentally unstable. Reading through gave me chills. All I can do is thank God for His presence in my life. This is proof you can’t carry on through life without the special grace of God especially with a certain level of success. Rest in peace Reeva Steenkamp.

    • Pennuella February 19, 2013 at 2:50 PM

      This is a big lesson to all. We must learn to manage anger and have a grip on our emotions. Secondly to my fellow ladies, men are very egoistic, therefore we must learn to stop nagging or exchanging words with our husbands/boyfriends/ fathers/brothers. Once their ego is hurt, they may do anything just to tell ou that they are the ones in charge. A word is enough for the wise

    • Modele February 19, 2013 at 4:43 PM

      sad

    • joke February 19, 2013 at 5:51 PM

      he’s very silly.
      Is he the fist person to use Steriods, what type of anger could have caused him to take someone’s life.He dint shoot once , he shot several times. Ingrate.May she RIP. As for Him, God will judge.

    • omada February 19, 2013 at 9:01 PM

      this is why whenever i hear, ‘oh my boyfriend hits me or my husband beats me’ the first thing out of my mouth is ‘run! leave that relationship”. Its not worth it. There’s no love in the grave. May she RIP and may justice be served.

    • You are Twits March 13, 2013 at 6:19 PM

      Your report is a joke. It is so far removed from what happened. Reeva was shot in the bathroom not the bedroom. He thought she was a burglar. South Africa has the highest murder rate in the WORLD! Why don’t you wait to find out what actually happened. Don’t make comments about a subject you know nothing about. I hope you all get sued!
