Oscar Pistorius, das Model, der Valentinstag und das war dann Notwehr04.03.2014 um 21:48
As the defence continued its efforts to discredit the state’s first witness, Michelle Burger, barrister Barry Roux read details from a medical report about where on Ms Steenkamp's body she was struck.
Dr Burger faced continued grilling about what she heard in the early hours of Valentine’s Day 2013, including a claim that she heard Ms Steenkamp's terrified scream just after the final shot was fired.
Mr Roux said this was physically impossible, given the final bullet had struck Ms Steenkamp in the head, puncturing her brain.
The court heard how the first bullet fired by Pistorius struck Ms Steenkamp in the right thigh and the second missed her and instead lodged in the bathroom wall.
A third shot struck her in the shoulder, while the fourth struck her head.It's understood there is a dispute between the parties as to the order of the bullets.
Mr Roux said it will be argued that it was physically impossible for Ms Steenkamp to have continued to scream after being struck in the head by a bullet from Pistorius' gun, especially if the sound had to travel 177 metres from the bathroom where Steenkamp cowered.
"A person with that brain damage will have no cognitive response," he said.
Clearly rattled by the detail, Dr Burger repeated her evidence."Just afterwards was the last time I heard her," she said.In the dock, Pistorius buried his head in his hands and appeared to wipe away tears. He was handed a tissue by a supporter.
