Oscar surfed porn on night of shooting

Pretoria - Only hours before the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, Oscar Pistorius allegedly visited porn sites while using his cellphone to surf the web, reported the Sunday Times.

According to an unnamed source, with intimate knowledge of the investigation, data recovered from one of Pistorius’s phones recovered at the scene shows he visited the sites while Steenkamp was at his house.

Pistorius previously stated that he and Steenkamp were in a loving relationship.

Pistorius, who goes on trial on 3 March, denies the charge of murder and says he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder.

The state is expected to call witnesses to the stand who will reveal that all was not rosy between the two at the time of the Valentine’s Day shooting.
