Dramatic pictures from inside the home of paralympian Oscar Pistorius — including the blood-soaked bathroom where he shot his lover Reeva Steenkamp — have been revealed.

It is the first time the public has seen the actual room where the athlete's model girlfriend was killed.

Images show a panel missing from the toilet door and two police markers below the handle which indicate bullet holes below the level of the handle.

It is likely the defence will argue this backs up the double-amputee runner's claims that he was walking on his STUMPS — and shooting from low down at what he thought was an intruder.

Oscar claims he raced to the bathroom with his gun after hearing a noise. He says he was horrified to then discover he had shot his girlfriend dead on St Valentine's Day.

Prosecutors say Reeva ran into the bathroom after a row and he deliberately shot her through the door after taking the time to put on his prosthetic legs.

Other pictures show footprints through trails of blood on the floor of Pistorius's luxury home in Pretoria, South Africa. There are more blood stains on the walls and a cream sofa.

He says he carried Reeva's body downstairs after calling for help.

The athlete has been granted bail while he awaits trial for murder.
