Police investigating the killing of Oscar Pistorius’ girlfriend are now focusing on her iPad after it was found on the bedroom floor – and his possible use of steroid drugs.

As the Blade Runner prepares to face court tomorrow, the mystery of Reeva Steenkamp’s final moments deepened after the tragedy was recreated in a controversial ‘cartoon’ strip in South Africa.

The bizarre images suggest the model was shot in the hip in Pistorius’ bedroom before being attacked and seeking refuge in the bathroom, sitting on the toilet seat.

Today Miss Steenkamp’s brother Adam, 36, called for the truth, telling reporters that the only person left alive who can say what happened is Pistorius.

Asked what could possibly be the motive behind his niece’s murder, Mike Steenkamp said: ‘The only person who can answer that is Reeva.’ But her brother Adam said: ‘Oscar’.

And June Steenkamp, Reeva’s mother said: ‘All we want are answers … answers as to why this had to happen, why our beautiful daughter had to die like this?’

Adam Steenkamp, a 36-year-old father of two who works at the University of Cambridge, has flown back to his parent’s home in South Africa to help deal with the crisis. Though he is Reeva’s half brother, as they have different mothers, he said that they considered each other direct siblings.

Paying tribute to his sister as he suggested Oscar should ‘tell the truth’, he said: ‘She was completely unpretentious. ‘Her work had become lively and exciting, and she was travelling all the time. But she was really excited, because we’d decided she was going to come and see us soon. It’s a pity she won’t do that now. Knowing she will not be coming is very difficult’

This morning it was revealed that steroids were reportedly found at Blade Runner’s luxury home where he is accused of murdering his girlfriend.

Police are investigating if Pistorius may have shot Miss Steenkamp in a fit of so-called ‘steroid rage’ – an explosion of aggression caused by performance-boosting steroids.

‘Steroid drugs were found at Pistorius’s home together with evidence of heavy drinking. That’s why police have specifically ordered that he be tested for steroids,’ a source told The Sun.

This morning the South African Police Service refused to respond to the claim, but sources close to the investigation had previously told a local paper that the steroid rage was one line of enquiry and that the star’s blood was being tested for drugs.
