The City Press published an exclusive report with some shocking new claims. A bloodied cricket bat is now the central piece of evidence in the unfolding Oscar Pistorius murder investigation. The report claims Reeva Steenkamp’s skull was crushed and that she was wearing a nightie when she was found. The suspicion is that the first shot, in the bedroom, hit her in the hip. She then ran and locked herself in the toilet and Pistorius fired three more shots through the door. [City Press]
