Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius may have beat his girlfriend with a cricket bat before shooting her to death in his South Africa home, according to a new report.
"There was lots of blood on the bat. Forensic tests will show whose blood it was," a source with inside knowledge of the case told City Press.
As well as bullet wounds to the head, arm, hand and hip, Steenkamp suffered a crushed skull, according to the South African paper.

People with tempers should not own guns.
I can’t imagine what possessed the man to do this.
I’m guessing the whole “I thought she was an intruder” thing is falling apart.
Make that people with uncontrollable tempers.
Don’t suppose steroid use might be an issue here.
Was it an assault bat?
My first thought was Roid Rage.
Steroids could certainly be an issue.
When a man kills a woman like this, it’s often because she has told him that she is leaving him and he can’t handle the thought that she might be with another man.
He can have a cricket bat, as long as I have my gun. :)
We need cricket bat control! We must stop cricket bat violence!
Do burglars in South Africa break into houses to go to the bathroom????
Initially I thought he was in the bathroom hiding and firing out but that's not the case.
And now the bloody cricket bat.
He is in deep doodoo and doesn't have a leg to stand on.
It was a travesty that he was even allowed to compete in the Olympics in the first place.
Sounds like his whole story has completely and utterly collapsed
yea me too on steriods!!
HOW could he murder such a sweet, beautiful creature?
The crazy thing is that she was an activist for battered women because she had been in an abusive relationship before.
Looks like he shot her once in the bedroom.
Wounded in the hip, she made it into the bathroom to hide.
then he shot her another 3 times through the bathroom door.
Then he busted down the bathroom door and smashed her skull in with the cricket bat to make sure she was dead.
I don’t really know much about this guy, but he should hang.
Battered women tend to seek out men that are predisposed to violence.
I’ve always advocated holding women responsible for getting into relationships with violent men, not because they are responsible for the violence, but because they are responsible for whom they choose to become connected with.
He mistook her for a cat burglar.
That’s what it’s starting to sound like to me as well.
That, and Oscar has serious “anger management” issues.
I’ve read here and there, and maybe it was the SA Mail & Guardian, that he was under suicide watch.
“Roid Rage” is an old wive’s tale that needs to die. There’s zero scientific evidence of it.
Does he get to wear his prothetics in prison or does he have to just drag himself around? I vote for dragging. Instead of “blade runner”, he’ll be “the slug”.
Especially when it came to their own female partners or those they deemed to be their property.
Back when it wasn't a federal offense like it is today, I saw lots of people use steroids with good effect bodybuilding wise with no visable mental side effects. Once they quit the drugs most got fat and couldn't face themselves in the mirror though.
Hold on. "She fell after I shot her accidentally, thinking she was an intruder, and she landed vary hard on the cricket bat. Then she went into convulsions and her head began jerking up and down and repeatedly violently slammed into the bat. It was horrible and there was nothing I could do to help her."
The victim is a discontinued model and the accused has no leg to stand on.
“The crazy thing is that she was an activist for battered women because she had been in an abusive relationship before.”
Gosh, I could imagine what that must have been like...”Honey, please pass the salt.”
“WHAT AM I, JUST SOME OBJECT HERE TO SERVE YOU? GET YOUR OWN #%&@ SALT!!!”
I don’t see myself ever dating an “activist for battered women”...
if i were leaving a volatile relationship, or a man with a bad temper, i would not tell him in person... how many times have we heard about a gal meeting the abusive guy one last time only to be killed by him during that final visit...
i would not feel that i owe it to him to tell him in person.. and i would just tell him i am too afraid of him to meet him in person...
your imagination has conjured up quite a scenario...
That explains why the prosecutor wanted to press capital murder charges last week.
Shot while sitting on the can?
Not too glamorous a way to go.
no, some people through no fault of their own attract monsters. You are part of the problem with your pathetic “Ive always advocated holding women responsible for getting into relationships with violent men” FU FU FU
I was willing to give him the benefit of a doubt...but this sound serious...
I will now remain silent..and watch the outcome and pray for both their souls...
The “Blade Runner” guy is probably one of those spoiled brats that has been allowed to get away with things all his life. I remember hearing him whine during the Para-Olympics that another runner cheated because his blades were larger; this was after he was given special treatment in the normal Olympics.
Watch? Heck, give him some rope and put it on pay per view.
Obviously a clear and immediate burglar threat that required the use of lethal force.
I had read she had been “tweeting” about what a wonderful Valentine’s day she had planned. Doesn’t match up with telling him she was going to leave him.
You should read Dr. Laura’s book on the ten mistakes men do to mess up their lives. Women like this fit under the category, Distressed Damsel.
It is unfortunate when a woman marries an abusive husband, but have you noticed how these woman tend to get into relationships with abusive men, time, and time again? There’s a reason for that.
The unfortunate women, who was killed by the Blade Runner, actually seek unstable men like bees get attracted to flowers because the unstable men have strong reactions, which makes the women feel like these men care.
When they marry normal, stable men who have mature reactions to situations, the unstable women tend to have difficulty equating that stable and mature reaction as an act of love. These are the women that you hear about, who were fortunate enough to marry nice guys, that run away from the marriage with some guy on a motorcycle to go do Mardi Gras or something. They cannot handle a normal and mature relationship.
All you end up doing, when your focus is on the abusive men, is saving the woman from one monster to watch her get into another relationship with another monster. There is no saving her, when your focus is on the monster and not her.
You can tell me all you want to, “FU FU FU”, but that just means that you lack adequate understanding of the dynamic of many abusive relationships.
Without changing the woman, you will spend an inordinate amount of time and energy saving her from the monsters that she seeks out. If you can change the woman, and have her reach a clear understanding that it’s not the monstrous men that is the real problem here, you will save her from herself.
That’s what I’m interested in.
That probably made him mad.
“your imagination has conjured up quite a scenario...”
Come on; you know that’s how it probably happened.
The girl must have put her foot down.
His story is nothing but a legerdemain.
Was she wearing her leggings when she died?
