PRETORIA: A witness heard ‘non-stop shouting’ in the home of South African athletics star Oscar Pistorius shortly before his girlfriend was shot dead, the detective leading the murder investigation said yesterday.
Warrant officer Hilton Botha, a detective with 24 years on the force, also told the Pretoria magistrates court in a bail hearing that police had found two containers of testosterone and needles in Pistorius’ bedroom.
The athlete’s defence team disputed the finding.
Pistorius, a double amputee dubbed ‘Blade Runner’ because of his carbon fibre racing blades, sobbed uncontrollably as Botha presented his testimony about the death of Reeva Steenkamp, 29.
After four hours of testimony, the hearing was adjourned until today.
