Trying to Make Sense of What Could Have Happened in Oscar's Bedroom

19 February 2013, 12:00
I have been reading the live updates, on News24, of Oscar bail hearing.

Now it is starting to make sense to me. Reports say there were six shots - three shots, screams, a period of silence, then three more shots. Reeva was said to have been hit by four shots.

Here is my theory, and it is only a speculative theory and opinion.

Oscar and Reeva are arguing in the bedroom. Angry Oscar goes for his gun and Reeva runs towards the bathroom. Oscar fires three shots at her and one hits her.

However she manages to get into the bathroom and lock herself inside. Oscar gets up and puts on the prosthesis. That explains the period of silence. He then walks to the bathroom, finds the door locked and fires three more shots into the bathroom. These are the fatal shots.

He then looks for the cricket bat to break the bathroom door. If we are to believe some claims that Reeva's skull was crushed, he may have bashed dead Reeva with the bat once he was inside the bathroom as well.

One key question, how could it never have occurred to him to call police, security guards or press the panic button of the alarm. I find it difficult to believe that, rich as he is, his house does not have an alarm system with a panic button.

According to reports, the police were called by others. Why not call the police when you suspect a burglar in your house?

The proper thing to do is call the police at the first opportunity. If the plan was to shoot the and kill burglar, that is still pre-meditated murder, as prosecutor Nel pointed out. His motive for not calling the police may (take note of the may) be that he wanted to temper with the crime scene. He wanted time to come up with a plan and story to exonerate himself.

If all this was a mistake, why didn't Oscar call the police himself. He certainly had his wits about him because he called at least two people, a neighbour and a friend.
