Van Rensburg described how, on arriving at Pistorius‘ house, he saw Steenkamp’s body near the entrance covered in towels and plastic bags that the daughter of the estate manager said she had used, with assistance from Pistorius, to try to stop the bleeding.

Pistorius was pacing in the kitchen, van Rensburg said.

“I asked him what happened but he didn’t answer me,” the former police officer said. “He was in tears.”

“We then followed the trail of blood up the stairs.”
