Pathologist Gert Saayman said Steenkamp had two scratches on her back. This could have been caused by a blunt object or shrapnel.

Her right buttock was bluish in colour. Saayman said this could have stemmed from the injury that Steenkamp had sustained on her right hip, where a bullet had penetrated.

There was some reddish discoloration on her right nipple, said Saayman.

He said this could have been caused by frictional contact.

Pistorius gagged as Saayman delivered his evidence.

Earlier, Saayman told the court that Steenkamp had also sustained wounds to her head, hips and hand.

Dressed in black, Pistorius’s sister, Aimee, who sat in the court gallery tried to keep her composure. She fought back tears as she listened to her brother retch.

Pistorius is on trial for Steenkamp’s murder.

He shot her through a locked bathroom door at his Pretoria home on Valentine’s Day last year. He says he mistook her for an intruder.

The State alleges that it was premeditated murder.

Attending the proceedings was Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga.

She sat in the front of the court gallery amid women clad in ANC Women’s League uniform.

    Oscars trial. While listening to the evidence again last night, and Roux that kept on japing on that after the shots were fired, it was impossible for Reeva to have screamed. But then it struck me. With Roux that want to convince the whitnesses that they mistakenly heard the cricket bat after the screams is when Oscar partially broke down the door. And the pathetic version that Oscar screams like a woman. Also Roux claims that they took a decibell test of Oscar screaming. Decibells determine the loadness of noice, not the frequency of a pitch. A oscilloscope is for that Now this is my version of events. Correct, there were two sets of “noises” first with Reeva screams in between the two sets of noises. The last set of noises killed Reeva and the no more screams,. Could the first set of noises not started of to be, while Reeva lied on the bed with Oscar, him watching porn on his phone and she texting a “friend”, sparked Oscar jealousy and he wanted to grab her phone. Reeva ran wit her phones to the bathroom, locked herself in the bathroom, Oscar furiously grab his bat and using the bat to wacked the door a few timed. Even more the moer in now, with the door still standing and with Reeva pleading with him to stop, Oscar ran back, grab his gun and fired the fatal shots through the door. I should have been in court. Please share so that this could end up on the Gerrie Nells desk, I must become a detective

      Your theory has one flaw. If she ran with the phones into the bathroom and locked herself in, him bashing and then going to fetch the gun, she would have had enough time to call someone or even text someone about what was happening to her.

    so they found out he was watching porn just before the murder… then her injury’s all sound so sexual … nipple hips and hands, did he want some and she said know, we all know they were having a ruff patch in their relationship right with Steenkamp dating that rugby player, do did he who is Oscar just lose it and then he attached her and shot her 4 times, it sound like he was Obsess with her, no wonder he tried to get her back on V/day, i also dont see how he could have mistaken her for an intruder, crs i live in gangster area and if i hear a noise the first thing i do is check if my family is all ok while i investigate around my house, also he has a security gaurd duh…and a alarm system,aslo they need to find out what wounds was influcted first, so they can match it to the time of when the people heared screams and time of death, then also who moves a body (why did he move her body from up stairs to down stairs) what did he not want others to see upstairs, i have tried at home to hit down a door with a cricket bat …. and you cant even hear it down the road so they must have heard gun shots.Sorry Oscar you used your fame to by pass all this but you have lost so much of your fans and career… but most of all you lost SA’s Respect for you as one of our star athletes. your temper got the better of you, you shot in a public place, lost in on International TV and now this.
