Nel: Why would you not included that in your report?
Dixo: My lady, as I said these were the wood splinters that had enough force to penetrate. I wanted to see the distribution.
Dixon: The other thing a test of this nature, you can put 10 witness boards and shoot at them. You will get a number of wood splinters.
Nel: We will deal with all that. I was just thing on that day, these weren't the only photographs that you took. There were more?
Nel: You will bring them tomorrow?
Dixon: Yes, I said I will.
Nel: Page 6 in your report, those are the two marks in the door as discussed yesterday.
Dixon: Ye, my lady.
Nel: When were they taken?
Dixon: In court, 13 March 2014.
Nel: Apart from these, do you have others?
Dixon: What was particular nice was the lighting in the court, you can clearly see the change in the colouration.
Nel: Was this the first photographs that you have of the door?
Nel: You remember when you came into the court on the 13 March, you saw the ladies cleaning the door. You were quite upset.
Nel: But this was now public.
Dixon: My lady, I had seen the door, I had seen photographs that the police took of the door. However when I saw the door in the court.
Dixon: I thought, the light was better and you could see the mark on the door clearly.
Nel: So you did not consider the mutton cloth, as being the fibre that you saw. Did you take a sample off the door?
Dixon: No, my lady. The cleaning lady was not putting much effort into the cleaning of the door.
Nel: I have another report of yours. It is a report, wood sequence. Woun do hip shot, 5 April.
Nel: You wrote here, secondary projectile caused lacerations.
Dixon: Yes, I saw these in photographs taken after the body had been cleaned. Around the wound there had been tiny spots.
Nel: If he said it was not so. would you be willing to concede?
Dixon: My lady, if Prof Saayman is willing to say it is not so, then he may. From my deduction at looking at the photographs. They were small, if they had damaged the skin it will be slight.
Nel: I have it on the record that there were no marks.
Roux: My lady, I think Mr. Nel should preserve that question.
Nel: As the court pleases. Photograph 1082.
Nel: I think it is JJJ 213.
Dixon: I have it my lady, It is the under sole of the right prosthetic.
Dixon: I am informed that it was taken by Mr. Van Der Westhuizen.
Dixon: No, I was not my lady.
Nel: When did you get involved?
Dixon: I got involved the day of the bail application, the Friday, my lady.
Nel: How did you get involved?
Dixon: I received a phone call, asking if I can assist with the reconstruction of the scene.
Nel: On photograph, the blue mark on the buttock, if Prof Saayman says that you are wrong and that it was caused by a bullet.
Dixon: My lady, if I look at his statement. It was a bruise. As I am not a wound ballastion or a qualified medical person.
Dixon: It is my conclusion that it was a bruise on the buttocks.
