3. Several police blunders have plagued the investigation. Botha initially said the two witnesses who heard screaming from Pistorius' house on the night of the killing were 600 meters away. He later changed the distance to 300 meters. Other admissions: Investigators missed a spent bullet in the toilet and didn't take pictures of a box of bullets but snapped photos of Pistorius' medals.


A 96-year-old man was hit by a car and killed in Bethlehem Wednesday night, officials said.

The accident happened just before 8 p.m. at Main and Raspberry streets.

Joseph Dabrowski, of 645 Main St., was taken to St. Luke's University Hospital in Fountain Hill, Lehigh Co., but the coroner said he died about a half-hour later.


His death was ruled an accident.

The accident remains under investigation.
