PRETORIA, October 3. (ITAR-TASS). - South African police allowed American forensic experts hired by paralympian Oscar Pistorius to examine evidence linked with the murder of his girlfriend Riva Stirkamp.
The house of Pistorius is no longer examined as the site of murder and has been recently returned to him, according to a statement made by police general lieutenant Solomon Makgale.
Forensic experts that are helping the defendant have twice visited the house in the presence of police officers. “They obtained controlled access to the toilet door (through which Pistorius shot) to reconstruct the scene of the crime and conduct their own investigation,” Makgale said.
The laws of South Africa commit the investigation to provide any evidence and clues to lawyers and experts for preparing the defense in court.
26-year-old Pistorius shot Stinkamp in the toilet of his home on February 14. He shot through the door and insisted that he had confused his girlfriend with a robber that broke into the house. The prosecution insists that it was a felonious homicide, for which Pistorius may be sentenced to life. The trial will take place in the High Court of Pretoria March 3 to March 20, 2014.
