I read that he was super obsessed with his safety, so much that he had a lot of weapons. Supposedly, he thought she was an intruder and shot her four times.

Obviously more details will come out, but it looks like his fears got the best of him.

Dude shot 4 times through a locked door?Huh

Didn't realize she wasn't in the bed? First instinct is to make sure the exact whereabouts of loved ones, then really you're going to try to corral them first if possible.  Then you'd probably proceed to bust caps.  Just opinions, but overall I'm not seeing why that door was locked in the first place.

Dude's a murderer. His story just doesn't make sense to me.

He should just confess, his story is making him look dumb.

It's a really bizarre case. His story doesn't make sense but neither does him murdering her.

If you think there's a burglar in the bathroom and your girlfriend is in the house, the first reaction would be to yell something out, not to just start blasting at the door.

Also, even if he thought it was somebody else.. isn't it still murder? He planned to kill whoever was behind that door and just because he thought it was self-defense doesn't make it self-defense.

So far 2 things don't make sense to me:

He said he got the gun from under his bed. Didn't he notice she wasn't in it? He also says he screamed to Reeva to call the cops. Did he hear an answer or her screaming too?

We'll have to wait on forensics but, he says he shot from his stumps without his prosthetics. Initial reports from the cops is that the bullet trajectory was down, not up. Perhaps he's playing the 'I'm a scared double amputee' card here?

In any case, we'll just have to wait for a trial to get at the truth of it.

Son was wigging out on dem roids, let loose on the door after she locked herself in

I believe this

And laws are different everywhere. Like where I'm at say someone breaks in and forensics shows you shoot em in the back or on your lawn as they're fleeing, automatically not self defense. General rule of thumb is get em in your house and can't be evidence the intruder was trying to flee.

Shooting through a locked door eliminates all that. You're shooting first without knowing anything.

"We have statement of a person who said after he heard gunshots, he went to his balcony and saw the light was on. Then he heard a female screaming two-three times, then more gunshots," Mr Botha told the court.

if this witness holds up, case closed imo, man domestic violence terrible but he could of just beat her ***, he aint have to kill her

then peep the layout of his home, not adding up.
