Nel: If that is not so, what is the only, if you read the report. What is the only evidence that you read that excludes tissue damage?
Dixon: My lady, my understanding that there is tissue damage. The shape, the lateral contusion.
Nel: Which day were you at the scene?
Dixon: The day the bail verdict was given.
Dixon: I was requested to be there.
Nel: What did you do there?
Dixon: Not very much, I was there to see what my expertise would be used for.
Dixon: It changed with time, to looking at marks and what caused them and so on and so forth.
Nel: I am very surprised as that the phrase that you used.
Dixon: What I mean by that is that I was not asked to look at one aspect specifically. I used my knowledge that I gained by working for the police for 18 years.
Nel: Is there any aspect that you had to investigate on your own?
Dixon: The varnish on the door and the varnish found on the prosthetic.
Nel: Did you ever analyse the door?
Dixon: Yes, a piece of the door was given by the investigating officer to Mr. Wolmarans, in a sealed evidence bag and that was given to me.
Nel: That you analysed and you found what?
Dixon: I found that they were consistent with each other, my lady.
Nel: Any thing else that you were asked to work on by yourself?
Dixon: I was asked to interpret the cricket bat noise. The sequence of events.
Nel: Where is the cricket bat that you used on the range?
Dixon: Mr. Wolmarans has that.
Nel: Do you know what happened to the firearm that you used the first night?
Nel: Do you know what ammunition you used?
Dixon: There was a problem getting Black Talon that night, it is my understanding that we used Ranger bullets.
Dixon: I know the next day, we were able to get Black Talon, but the night before we used Ranger.
Nel: So who did you get this from?
Dixon: I recollect, discussing with Mr. Wolmarans that it was very difficult to get Black Talon at that moment . That is why we used Ranger.
Nel: Who took the photographs?
Dixon: Mr. Van Der Westhuizen.
Dixon: I was not paying attention to the photographer, I was paying attention to the door.
Nel: Have you seen the photographs of that testing?
Dixon: No, I have not , my lady.
Nel: Was there a video camera ther?
Dixon: No, it was very dark.
Nel: You said you have on your computer of the gunshots of that night?
Dixon: Yes, I received some data from Mr. Wolmarans, my lady.
Nel: can you bring those as well?
Nel: Now, my lady I indicated this morning that I would use up as much time as I can. It is an half hour, I request that we adjourn until tomorrow.
Judge: We will resume tomorrow morning at 9:30am.
