There's another twist in the Pistorius story
More information appears to be coming out indicating that his girlfriend's death was less of an accident than Pistorius would like you to believe.
His only chance to avoid a charge of premeditated murder might actually be something that no athlete would ever want to admit: Roid rage.
Apparently, while searching Pistorius' house, police found "boxes and boxes" of steroids in various forms.
He'll likely be drug tested as part of the investigation, and we'll see if this becomes a major part of the trial.
Pistorius claims that he was holding the steroids for a friend, which might just be the worst excuse ever.
In all reality, Pistorius' best strategy to avoid a mandatory life sentence that would come with a premeditated murder conviction might be to claim that he was in a steroid-induced rage, and wasn't thinking straight when he pulled the trigger.
Then again... at this point, what's the difference for him whether he spends 20-30 years in prison, or life in prison?
Pistorius is in a terrible spot right now, and it seems like it's entirely his fault.
Between the murder charge and the steroids, has an athlete ever fallen so far, so fast? I'm not sure I can remember anything quite like this.
