This might seem ancillary, in the wake of Oscar Pistorius's transformation from "inspirational athlete" to "accused murderer," but the news that banned drugs were found in Pistorius's home may end up playing a major role in his trial—a line of argument by the prosecution or the defense.
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.
