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?


In an affidavit, Pistorius claimed he called a member of the estate's administration team to phone an ambulance and also spoke to Netcare, South Africa's largest private emergency response company. "I phoned Netcare and asked for help. I went downstairs to open the front door. I returned to the bathroom and picked Reeva up as I had been told not to wait for the paramedics, but to take her to hospital," he wrote. But in a court document, prosecutors say Pistorius never phoned the police or security. "[He] indicated that he was fine. He never asked for their assistance and did not make a report about the shooting incident to them," states the report.
