So tragic. Reeva’s family was reportedly notified by police that her skull was bashed in by a cricket bat, allegedly wielded by Oscar Pistorius.

Reeva Steenkamp’s grieving relatives were reportedly told by police that Oscar Pistorius murdered their daughter, using a cricket bat before allegedly shooting her.

Injuries consistent with being hit with the bat were also evident on Reeva’s head when her family viewed her body before cremation, The Mail reports.

Oscar was granted bail on Feb. 22 because the South African court decided that he is not a flight risk. It was at his bail hearing that Oscar admitted a blood-stained bat was found in his home, but it was because the famed South African athlete claims he used it to break down the bathroom door when he realized he shot Reeva and not an intruder.
