Oscar Pistorius: What Police Found At The Scene

During the second day of Oscar Pistorius' bail hearing, police described what they found in his house after the body of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was discovered at the foot of stairs on the ground floor.

Bedroom

:: Investigating officer Hilton Botha told the court police found two boxes of testosterone and needles in the bedroom.

Defence lawyer Barry Roux said the box contained herbal medication called Testocompasutium co-enzyme, not testosterone.

A spokesman for prosecutors later said it was too early to know what the substance was, as they do not yet have results of forensic testing on the material.

:: Mr Botha said a gun holster was found on the left side of the bed where Miss Steenkamp's slippers and overnight bag were.

::  Pistorius illegally possessed .38 calibre ammunition in a safe in his bedroom, according to Mr Botha - but the defence lawyer said it belonged to the athlete's father.

Bathroom

:: Mr Botha said he saw a firearm on the shower mat, one bullet case in the passageway and three in the bathroom.

:: Mr Roux said there was a spent bullet inside the toilet bowl, which Mr Botha had failed to find.

:: An iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 were found on the shower mat, which Mr Botha said had not been used to call the ambulance.

However, Mr Roux said Pistorius had called Netcare hospital at 3.20am and the housing complex manager received a call asking for help.
