The first crime scene photos of Oscar Pistorius‘ bathroom, following the Feb. 14 shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, have been released to the public — and might include a clue that backs up the runner’s alibi in his ongoing murder case.
The images show two bullet holes low in the bathroom door — seemingly backing up the Olympian’s claim that he was NOT wearing his prosthetic legs at the time he fired his gun though the door, thinking an intruder had breached his property.
As we previously reported, as the 26-year-old athlete is accused of premeditated murder in the 29-year-old model’s death, as prosecutors said he shot to kill her as she hid in a bathroom following a violent Valentine’s Day argument.
We’ve also learned that officers involved in the investigation are under questioning as well, after one of Pistorius’ watches came up missing from his home.
Pistorius gained international fame as the first-ever double-amputee runner in Olympic competition, garnering the nickname, the “Blade Runner.”
He’s due back in court in South Africa’s Pretoria Magistrate’s Court June 4.
