Five Reasons the Oscar Pistorius Case Isn't a Slam Dunk

The Olympic athlete admitted to shooting his girlfriend to death on Valentine's Day 2013, but was it an accident or premeditated?


South African prosecutors flew to California this week to meet with officials at Apple's headquarters, according to the Associated Press. For more than a year, South African officials have tried to access Pistorius's iPhone, one of several phones found at his luxury home. Police have been unable to unlock the iPhone because Pistorius claims he cannot remember the password. The trial starts Monday, which means they have a few days to retrieve information from his phone. An unidentified source told a local paper that officials are trying to recover details about the times he made calls and texted messages, as well as any deleted information. Three senior police officials, including the head of detectives Lieutenant-General Vineshkumar Moonoo, met with Apple officials Thursday.
