Did Olympian Oscar Pistorius Kill His Girlfriend? Witness claims to hearing bloody screams

The first witness in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial testified Monday to hearing a woman’s “blood-curdling” screams before the sound of four gunshots on the night the double-amputee Olympian killed his girlfriend.

Pistorius says he killed his girlfriend Steenkamp by mistake thinking she was a dangerous intruder in his house, but prosecutors believe the world-famous athlete shot his girlfriend after a fight and immediately tried to paint a picture at the trial of a loud argument before the fatal shots.

His neighbor Michell Burger lives next to Pistorius in their gated community said, that she and her husband were awoken during the night to the sound of bloody screams coming from the Olympians home.

It was very traumatic,” Burger said, speaking in Afrikaans through an interpreter and in answer to questions from lead prosecutor Gerrie Nel. “You could hear it was blood-curdling screams. You can’t translate it into words. The anxiousness in her voice, and fear. It leaves you cold.”

The famous double amputee Olympic athlete previously pleaded not guilty at the start of the trial to charges of murder and three other counts relating to shooting guns in public and illegal possession of ammunition. Pistorius spent the first 30 minutes of the first day of the trial at the high court in the South African capital standing before his defense lawyer, Barry Roux, asked the judge for permission for Pistorius to sit.

Oscar Pistorius is on trial for shooting his girlfriend last year on Valentine’s Day and the judge overseeing the case has to decide whether or not Pistorius shot his girlfriend after an argument in rage or by mistake thinking she was an intruder.

Pistorius says he killed Steenkamp by mistake thinking she was a dangerous intruder in his house, but prosecutors believe the world-famous athlete shot his girlfriend after a fight and immediately tried to paint a picture at the trial of a loud argument before the fatal shots.

In the statement, Pistorius said he brought two fans in from the balcony on the night of the killing, after speaking to his girlfriend who was in bed beside him. He said Steenkamp must have gone into the bathroom while he was fetching the fans. Pistorius said he did not notice that she had gone and heard the bathroom window open.

“I approached the bathroom, armed with my firearm, so as to defend Reeva and I,” Pistorius said in the statement. He said he then heard a noise in the toilet, and was in a “fearful state” because he was unable to run away or defend himself physically since he was not wearing his prosthetic legs. He said he shouted at what he thought was an intruder and then shot through the toilet door, only later realizing that he shot Steenkamp.

Pistorius is famous Olympic sprinter from South Africa that had both of his legs amputated below the knee at 11 months old. He won gold medals at the 2012 Summer Paralympics setting world records in the 200 and 400 hundred meter races. He is the first double amputee to compete in the Olympics.
