An Australian news channel leaked footage yesterday of a video showing Oscar Pistorius re-enacting events the night he killed Reeva Steenkamp. The video, commissioned by his defense team, was meant for trial preparation only, but Channel 7 somehow obtained and aired it on Sunday 6. The footage shows Pistorius walking through the house without his stumps on while carrying his gun. He used his sister as a double, picking her up and carrying her as he said he did with Steenkamp’s body the night she died.
Here’s the first half of the actual documentary called Running Scared. It’s likely gonna be removed soon.
And here’s a news report about reaction to the video which the defense team say was obtained illegally.
The video was made by The Evidence Room to create a forensic animation and was commissioned by his defense team.
“Oscar Pistorius’s lawyers are outraged after footage aired on Australian television on Sunday showing a reenactment of the night he shot dead his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
Pistorius’s lawyers say the footage, shown on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night program, was obtained “unlawfully” and was not meant to be shown until after the murder trial.” [Mashable]
We’ll know today when the trail resumes what the court has to say about the leaked footage. Will update later.
