Judge: Before we start this morning, I have on thing to say. This is addressed to the overflow court. I believe that the people are unruly.
Judge: I just want to remind them that they are an extension of this court. What rules apply for this court, apply for court GC.
Judge: Please restrain yourself, this is a court. Please make sure, if you do not want to adhere to the rules, you are free to leave.
Nel: As the court pleases.
Roux: As the court please.
Judge: You are still under oath Mr. Dixon.
Nel: I am going to start with the demonstration of the bat. You listened to the recording of the bat strikes that you made?
Dixon: That is right, my lady.
Nel: You also had an occasion to listen to the gun shots, fired the night that it was fired. Could you pick up that there was a difference in the back ground sound?
Dixon: My lady, I didn't notice any thing in the short clips, in the long sound clips I could hear the frogs in the background.
Nel: Were you involved in the shooting of the firearm?
DIxon: My lady I was only involved in the bat strikes being recorded.
Nel: I listened to the cat sounds, in my opinion the sound has been amplified.
Dixon: The idea was to record the sound, if the sound engineer did something to make the sound clearer. Then I am not aware of that.
Nel: You indicated who all were present that evening, who all helped the sound engineer?
Dixon: The sound engineer had an assistant. So to the best of my knowledge it was those two people who produced those sounds.
Nel: Did you not say Mr. Wolmarans was there yesterday?
Dixon: He was listening, my lady.
Nel: We dealt with the fact that you also. Before we go there, please indicate to the court how many times you went back to the scene?
Dixon: 22 February, 25 February, 1 March, 27 September, 8 November, last year and then 25 March 2014 and then on the 14 April 2014 my lady.
Nel: You checked this and got it from your records?
Dixon: Yes, my lady. I got this from my log book.
Nel: Do you keep a case file of cases that you work on?
Dixon: Since I left the police, this is the first job that I have done besides for my work at the University. I do no advertise.
Nel: Were you not at the scene on the 26 March 2014?
Dixon: No, my lady. I was in Kilnerpark
Nel: What was your purpose of the visit on the 25 March?
Dixon: The illumination of the lights, my lady.
Dixon: I went to see the darkness of the room at night.
Nel: On the 25 March, who accompanied you?
Nel: Who took the photograph?
Dixon: I did, my lady. Using my own camera.
Dixon: We did tests on the 14 April, by switching the lights on and off to check the illumination. To see what was visible to ones eyes.
DIxon: Often it is a point measurement.
Nel: Now, I am sure you will agree using ones' eyes is a very subjective thing?
Dixon: It will depend on the state of their eyes, the adjusting from the light to dark. I wanted to see what one can see.
Nel: How reconstructions did you do regarding the door?
Nel: On the other days that you went there, was there any equipment used?
Dixon: As I stated, I assisted Mr. Wolmarans with his tests on the door. I took measurements of the door. I didn't do any tests except on the 1 March 2013.
Dixon: I did a test using a portable X-ray spec, on the ricochet mark E.
Nel: On the 14th to the house. Did you draft a report?
