The defence in my opinion has proved that the crime scene was contaminated by police and that some credibility is in question due to the missing watch, footprints, evidence handling without gloves etc. Is it enough though? No, as I believe the scene was also disturbed by the accused by moving the body, and when he went back upstairs to put a shirt on. This would explain the blood on the bedroom wall, simply blood transfer. He had blood on his hands and in moving his hands around blood was transferred to the wall. I don't believe anything occurred in the bedroom.
Ballistics expert, Captain Christian Magena, was an excellent witness. He knew his stuff and rarely had to refer to his notes. It was very clear that:
- Oscar was on his stumps at the time of the shooting.
- He shot tap - pause - tap, tap, tap.
- Reeva was in a standing position by the toilet bowl facing the door when the first shot impacted her right hip. This bullet caused her to give out and became seated or slumped on the magazine rack.
- The second bullet did not hit her, but hit the wall and ricocheted, which caused fragments of the bullet to spray hitting her in the back causing bruising.
- The witness demonstrated how she was in a defensive position bringing her hands to her head with her arms bent upwards when the third bullet went through her upper left arm.
- The fourth bullet hit the victim's head through her fingers when she slumped completely over at the waist and her head came to rest on the seat of the open toilet. The blood from her head wound pooled into the bowl and the blood from her arm wound pooled on the floor below.
