Oscar Pistorius attacked his lover Reeva Steenkamp with a cricket bat before shooting her dead, new forensic evidence claims

Shocking new evidence emerged today that claims to show that six-time Paralympic gold medalist Oscar Pistorius allegedly attacked his lover with a cricket bat before shooting her dead at his home in Pretoria, South Africa on Valentine's Day 2013.

During his trial, the Paralympian said that he accidentally killed Reeva Steenkamp after mistaking her for an intruder who was lurking in
his toilet.

But forensic experts now believe two injuries on the model's back match the tip of the bat.

And that the marks on the ripped and twisted handle also suggest there was a struggle between the pair.

 If this new finding is  confirmed, it would strengthen the prosecution's case that Oscar gunned down Miss Steenkamp during a late-night row after she had locked herself in the toilet cubicle.

The athlete claimed he fired four times through the closed door in self-defence fearing a burglar was about to jump out at him.

He told his trial that when he realised it was his girlfriend, he used the cricket bat to smash down the door to try to save her.
