Pistorius was accused of shooting Steenkamp to death when he fired four shots into the door of a toilet cubicle in his Pretoria home in 2013.

The former Paralympian told the court during his several trial proceedings that he accidentally killed Reeva Steenkamp after mistaking her for an intruder who was lurking in his toilet.

However, forensic expert brothers, who carried out various tests, said that Steenkamp sustained injuries prior to locking herself in the bathroom, adding that two injuries on the model’s back match the tip of the bat.

Marks on the ripped and twisted handle also suggest there was a struggle between the pair, the Daily Maverick reports.

According to the brothers, this may have been overlooked in the pathologist’s report and testimony.

Here’s a excerpt from the Introduction: “In this book we look very carefully at Oscar’s version by examining the crime-scene photographs, relevant reports and the testimony of various witnesses in order to answer one question: Did Oscar know Reeva was behind the door?”

Initially, Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide – a ruling replaced with a conviction of murder in the Supreme Court of Appeal.

The former Paralympian is currently serving the remainder of his five-year murder sentence under house arrest and he stays at his uncle’s home in Pretoria.
