Plus a big dramatics dramatic developments I should say the murder of Revis dean camp allegedly at the hands of Oscar -- -- murdered.
He's the famous Olympic athlete is known as the blade runner for his prosthetic legs which he had the -- -- baby.
Newly released details from Revis -- -- autopsy.
Now reportedly show that her skull was crushed allegedly by a bloody cricket bat in his apartment.
Before she was shot in the head these are not independent reports yet confirmed by fox they come from the Daily Mail.
The story is claimed in an affidavit submitted to the court that he -- that cricket bat to break down the bathroom door after he had shot her several times and realize that he was shooting.
His girlfriend and not an intruder.
But the prosecution failed to many mention anything.
About the cricket bat or -- -- during last week's bail hearing so are we to believe these reports.
-- wheels a fox and he asked for federal prosecutor.
This this is so confusing me because before we got to the bail hearing there were reports of this right we talked about them then we get to the bail hearing buckets prosecutions has nothing about it which led me to believe.
Pride and how they don't that if I -- why it right.
Why when they mention that why would the lead investigator take the stand saying nothing at the crime scene is inconsistent with -- story.
All right in this country we would hold things back as a prosecutor to bail hearing you don't want to give everything out the defense because you don't want the defense to have that information -- -- you wanna keep that I did eventually they eventually they get it.
But it didn't make sense it doesn't make sense here because what was the ultimate result he got let out yeah he got bail credits if they have released that evidence and if -- or to be true with that that they knew it when this is now few days later -- -- -- also you know it's coming forensics are coming -- days later.
If they have really have that evidence that it and it just blows his defense got.
That is below as they visit over what what is excited -- -- on the record explanation of the cricket I was which is interestingly he mentioned it right and I keep in mind and tell the viewers.
He is the one who did mention it in court so he clearly felt the need to explain it sticks a bloody cricket back right at the scene by saying I had to knock on the door and it makes me did you take that.
-- backs up but from what we heard last week.
That could be plausible because -- -- a knock down the door.
And then maybe her and her blood to be found on the back because it's when she fell after the shooting had to be too graphic here she may have -- a fallen on the on the back.
You can see that but.
If now they've got friends it's -- show that she was beaten.
In the school with the bat before the bathroom the shooting.
It doesn't everything just doesn't hold water so the only thing I can think of what the prosecution is -- -- just if it's true this evidence is true they didn't have it last week.
They are saying that.
He crushed her skull with the cricket bat before shooting her dead -- the Daily Mail.
Police have told her family they admit that that those details were withheld from the bail application hearing.
But they say grieving relatives who saw her body described the horrific injuries from the cricket -- right in addition to the gun the gun -- now -- Also account what you think about -- -- further that would account why she was dressed in street clothes when she was you know there in the small little bathroom area because she was trying to cut she'd been beaten.
In the head with this -- she -- and you can see you can see the -- she ran into the bathroom locked the door 'cause the door was locked.
And that's the shots were fired and that all -- consistent sense what doesn't is why the prosecution didn't bring it out.
But you know forensics -- take -- time and.
We're gonna -- -- was crashed in a location other than where the bullet entered and not related to the bullet wound.
It's a major problem for him I mean he's claiming it was all just bullet wounds through a door.
Self defense like if there was an altercation between that and of course there's there's spend about reports that.
They were screaming before and right now that there's more than one ear witness to that and that we're gonna hear more about that now there's a surveillance.
Video showing her pull up and we're trying to find out what it is -- surveillance video showing him arriving at the -- -- wait there may be more surveillance video to come out.
But the question is if there if there is a skull injury other than the bullet.
Loan -- right and before if they can do at establish that was before the -- was because the chitchat and light autopsy right and an autopsy would stay at that they may not have -- -- because.
You ain't got -- from the defense perspective you're gonna create any kind of doubt that you can't that she could fall like anything could happen in that bathroom after the shots were fired that he did you secretary.
Bat just to get in and protect not in protector but just to break open the door.
But it's happened with.
Isn't -- -- it for him to go over well.
How would fat quick to other things now we hear that his brother hit it is facing a murder charge -- at the stories of brother is right up with a woman that he was -- -- years I think 2007 as -- as -- right here and now it's it.
And it's manslaughter -- -- vehicular manslaughter so he's looking that.
That really should have nothing to do with this case citing is that it is curious -- good lord I mean yeah for the parents whether they're for the parents are not is that it that should have nothing to do with his case have so that are at least -- -- -- discussion thank you man you got.
