The duo also gave a brief tour of the backyard, showing the window where Pistorious feared an intruder had entered the bathroom where he shot Steenkamp. This formed an integral part of the athlete’s defense at trial: Pistorius argued that he didn’t intend to shoot his girlfriend, but rather, he had heard noise coming from the bathroom and thought it may have been an intruder who had entered through the window.

As bizarre as the business plan is Scott’s view of what happened that night—including a disparaging comment on Steenkamp and women in general.

“I know what happened. I can tell you now, I’ve had girlfriends before. That night they had a fight. Oscar’s girlfriend did what a typical woman did to any man [sic], [she] tried to double [cross] him. With a syndrome that he has anyway with his legs being amputated, he would’ve flipped easily,” says Scott.

The video ends in the bathroom where Steenkamp was murdered, with Scott and Mokoape reenacting their version of what might have happened.

“We’re standing in front of this toilet,” Scott says. “This is where it happened. It’s already two years, it’s not too soon in any case. But no disrespect to anything that happened.”
