No web history on Oscar Pistorius’ iPad

No web history was found on Oscar Pistorius’s iPad when a police cellphone expert examined it, the High Court in Pretoria heard on Wednesday.

“My Lady, there was no history found on the device. It must have been deleted,” said Colonel Mike Sale, the latest witness in the trial of the paralympian accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The last access was at 9.19pm on February 14 2013, he testified.

Sale said he received an iPad and iPhone from the former investigator on the case, Warrant Officer Hilton Botha, when he was brought in to the case.

The last items Pistorius browsed were pictures of sports cars.

Sale said he downloaded the iPad, focusing on the web history, the bookmarks and the general information, then printed it out.

“My Lady, the web history is the history of where you played on the internet,” he explained for the court.

The paralympic athlete has been charged with the premeditated murder of Steenkamp and contravening the Firearms Control Act.

He allegedly fired a shot from a Glock pistol under a table at a Johannesburg restaurant in January 2013.

On September 30, 2012 he allegedly shot through the open sunroof of a car with his 9mm pistol while driving with friends in Modderfontein.

He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

He said he thought there was an intruder in the house when he fired into the toilet, realising only afterwards it was Steenkamp.
