New blow for athlete after he walked through court on stumps in bid for leniency

A judge has dramatically agreed to release graphic pictures of Reeva Steenkamp’s gunshot wounds after her parents begged for the ‘world to see’ the pain Oscar Pistorius had inflicted on their daughter.

The 29-year-old model was struck in the head, elbow and hip as she cowered behind a toilet door at the runner’s house three years ago.

Pistorius shot her with three military-grade Black Talon bullets that are designed to expand upon impact, wreaking devastating damage to the flesh it strikes.

Some of the pictures show her hair matted with blood and severe bruising around her eye which a pathologist said during his trial was caused by the impact of the bullet on her skull.

Judge Thokozile Masipa allowed six crime scene images to be released after Mr and Mrs Steenkamp went through the torturous process of choosing which ones they wanted to be shared with the public. 

A source told MailOnline: ‘There were scores for them to look at and they bravely chose the ones that showed the horrific impact of her injuries.

‘It was a very painful process for them, but they are very anxious that people know exactly what their daughter went through on the night she died.’ 

MailOnline has chosen to publish some of the pictures, which we have muzzed, but the others are far too graphic to show.
