London: In a further shock for murder-accused Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, police investigating the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp have reportedly revealed that they had found Pistorius’ prized trophies strewn across the floor of the Pretoria home on the night Steenkamp was shot dead.

According to the investigators, the awards, of which some were broken, may point to a row between Pistorius and Steenkamp before he ‘accidentally’ shot her four times.

According to a police source, they are still trying to establish whether the awards might have ended up around his home during an alleged dispute, adding that in a normal situation, the trophies would have been in a good condition and showcased on shelves or in cabinets. A 2010 ‘at home’ magazine article showed a row of Pistorius’ silverware lined up neatly on top of a wall-mounted cabinet.

It has been revealed that his guard dogs were at home and there had been no ­burglaries at the complex in Pretoria, South Africa, for more than two years, the report added.
