My question about the Pistorius shooting that I haven't found addressed:

Wouldn't Steenkamp be screaming like a banshee or at the least calling his name?
If she was able to go into the bathroom and lock the door, I would think she was making a lot of noise.

1. I wonder the same

thing myself.

I'm sure there are people that heard something. We'll have to wait for the trial.

2. My main point is that he had to know

who he was shooting. Even if nobody else heard her, I cannot imagine that her voice didn't register with him.

4. I don't know if he's denying that he killed her.

He may have heard her, but not really heard her. If that makes any sense.

3. I Believe The Neighbors Have Some Excellent Testimonies

 

I would think screaming and gun shots account for much of what they had to say. We shall see.

5. Do you know how far apart the houses are in his area?

and how thick the walls? That would all be a factor.

6. I believe his house is quite the mansion and NOT close to others

from the initial pictures I saw of it.

So nobody probably heard her...

7. My question is.....who just shoots blindly through a closed door even if you think there are robbers

there??? This is one of the best arguments yet for gun control, if that is his defense, is that these gun nuts shoot first and ask questions later. There was no reason for him to assume there were people in the bathroom with the door closed and for him to just start shooting wildly through the door at whoever happened to be in there. This goes squarely against the argument that people should have guns in their homes "for protection" if they hear a noise and just start blasting.

8. Wasn't she hit in the head by a cricket bat or something

And then fled to the bathroom. Thought I read she had a skull fx from the bat and it had blood on it.
If true it's hard to claim the shooting was at unknown in bathroom.
