The Sun, citing police sources, reported that steroids were found during a search of the house when officers arrived to find Reeva Steenkamp dead from gunshot wounds. The Daily Mirror adds that there were “boxes and boxes” of unopened steroids found in a drawer, in “every form possible” including pills and syringes. The Mirror claims Pistorius told police they weren’t his, and he was just holding the PEDs for a friend.
South Africa’s City Press reports that police specifically requested Pistorius’s blood be tested for drugs—in anticipation, they claim, of a possible “roid rage” argument. At today’s bail hearing, prosecutors raised the possibility that Pistorius flew into a rage upon learning Steenkamp received a message from former boyfriend, national rugby player Francois Hougaard.
