Steroids found at Blade Runnerís mansion Cops find bloodied cricket bat too
The Sun ^ | 2/18/13 | NICK PARKER

BANNED steroid drugs were found in Oscar Pistorius’s house after he shot dead lover Reeva Steenkamp.

Police also discovered a blood-stained cricket bat in the Blade Runner’s mansion in Pretoria, South Africa — and evidence of heavy drinking before the 3am shooting.

Cops are now probing a theory that Pistorius may have blasted Reeva in an explosion of fury caused by the performance-boosting steroids.

They are investigating whether murder suspect Pistorius was in the grip of “roid rage” — a side-effect of high doses of the outlawed drugs.

Officers who searched the 26-year-old’s home after lover Reeva was killed in the bathroom are said to have found steroids. Blood samples taken from Pistorius are being tested for the drugs.

A source close to the investigation said: “Steroid drugs were found at Pistorius’s home together with evidence of heavy drinking. That’s why police have specifically ordered that he be tested for steroids.”

Model Reeva was killed by 9mm pistol shots fired through the locked bathroom door at around 3am on Valentine’s Day.

She was hit in the head and body four times in total. But police now believe the first shot was fired at her in the master bedroom — hitting her hip as she fled to the bathroom.

Wounds to the top of her head suggest that as she sat doubled up in pain on the toilet she was hit three more times by bullets that ripped through the door.

Experts say she may have been covering her head protectively with her hands, which explains the bullet wounds to her finger and arm.

A blood-stained cricket bat was found at the home in Pretoria, South Africa — and Reeva, 29, appeared to have skull “crush injuries”. Tests will establish whether she was injured by the bat before being shot.

If you open up the book on rage attacks in the US over the past decade...from coast to coast...most all will involve some steroid use. Cops don’t want to mix this into the evidence because it’ll just confuse a jury and give them a reason to let the guy off (he was on drugs and couldn’t control himself-defense).

when are people going to come to grips with the fact that nearly all professional athletes are on drugs of one kind or another.

Lets just stop the pretending and bring this out in the open and stop rewarding those who are best at concealing what they are taking or who have access to the latest greatest drug which hasn't been banned yet.

It’s not really a defense because he did it to himself, voluntarily.

In fact, steroids will probably raise the profile of the attack and put it on the news, so why wouldn’t cops advertise the fact?

Lets just hope some genius doesn’t decide to mix steroids with bath salts.

“Cops don’t want to mix this into the evidence because it’ll just confuse a jury and give them a reason to let the guy off”

Or maybe because a significant number of cops are steroid abusers themselves.

It’s called a crime of passion. Roids may have enhanced it, but they didn’t cause it.

He was a Blade Runner? Of course he’d need ‘roids to retire a replicant with a cricket bat. Harrison Ford had to use a gun, but this guy is using a wooden bat.

Replicant Ping!

A couple of days ago my husband asked; “Why would anyone kill such a beautiful woman.” I said I will bet he is taking steroids. Those things make you meaner than all get out.

I still believe in the now antiquated philosophy (at least around here) of innocent until proven guilty. I hope he's given a fair trial then let their judicial system be the semi-final arbiters of his fate.

God of course being the final judge of heaven or hell........

You sick individual! ROFL!

Somebody at work today commented that he might be a flight risk, but I told them he’d be wearing an ankle monitor.
