Police believe there is evidence that Oscar Pistorius beat his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, with a bat before shooting her.

Pistorius told cops he mistook her for a burglar, but investigators said a bloodied cricket bat was found in the runner’s home, according to The City Press, a South African newspaper.

Pistorius may have either used the bat to attack Steenkamp or break down the bathroom door where she was hiding, or she may have used the bat to defend herself, City Press reported. Police are investigating all three scenarios.
