W: I really don't understand the question.
Nel: That's fine, we will get to it. I don't understand the difficulty, place her arm at B, her right hand side but face the door.
Nel: Just turned towards the door with your right hand side.
Nel: Now you are right, you turned and your right hand shoulder was towards the door.
Nel: She most be down, even is she is 13cm down towards the door.
W: My lady the splinters are around that door, if you can put a scenario to me as to where the splinters came from.
W: I have conducted many tests in my career doing this type of thing. We even conducted tests with fresh slaughtered pigs. To enhance your knowledge.
W: My lady the splinters from the secondary missiles are consistent with her arm being close to the door. I said I would hand up some literature to you my lady.
Nel: You can wait until you have an opportunity to hand it up by Mr. Roux.
Nel: Can you identify bullet hole B for us?
Nel: Yes ,you are right. Just look at that photograph, there is no where for her to bend her shoulders and her head there.
W: I disagree, there is enough space.
Nel: Are you saying she just went downwards?
W: That is what I understood from both the pathologists. I am not a docter but it makes sense to me that she will collapse like that.
Nel: You see, I know that one can put her in any position but are you saying after A she turned but collapsed downwards.
W: I am sorry, interrupt me if I am out of order. We know that she was shot three times, we know that there was four shots.
W: My lady, I retrieved a bullet from the toilet bowl with a piece of tile, that tells me one thing that the deceased was not on the toilet when the shot was fired.
W: There is the mark E on the wall that was probably a bullet the bounced from E to F. Then we have the splinters that is an indication that she was close to the toilet door.
W: I can say this and tomorrow there can be another expert that can see it from another angle.
Nel: You see, you have made a point. It is impossibly for her to be low enough for B to hit her.
W: I disagree, I think there is enough space.
W: I think she must have collapse, first shot, hands are going up. That is the second shot.
Nel: Is she collapsed there she would never have had the head wound.
Nel: She has fallen backwards, only one shot could still hit her because the other one missed her. On your version she collapsed down.
W: While she was falling down, this arm was totally destroyed, hand is coming up while falling down, One shot struck her on the finger and then while going down the other shot hit her in the head.
W: I have seen this type of wound many times my lady. It het her and the one piece of the core came out and made mark G on the wall.
W: I cant see that it is not a possibility.
Nel: If your reconstruction was, she could never have ended with her head on that side of the toilet.
W: My lady, any thing could have happened.
Nel: You are right, any thing is possible in this world, but the court is interested in the probability of what happened.
Nel: The head wound was inflicted whilst the head was in the facinity of the toilet.
W: My lady, at that stage when the shot was fired, her hand and head was not in that position. I took all the probabilities into account in my opinion.
Nel: Do you think the accused fired rapidly?
W: I think in all probability my lady. It all depends in the person, I was able to do it when I was younger but I cant do it now.
Ne: Have you asked him how he fired?
Nel: Have you been present when he said how he fired?
Nel: Was it not important for you to know?
W: I don't think so my lady.
Nel: For your reconstruction to be accepted, you would require him to fire in rapid succession. She bled from her head into the toilet and the arm would bleed around the side.
Nel: One thing I think Mr Dickson said that was correct was that the magazine rack was in that position when the deceased was shot.
W: I agree my lady. I even went later and had a look at the blood spatter. I am no blood spatter expert. It is common sense.
Nel: But it is not the version of the accused.
