On Monday, Oscar Pistorius learnt that he will know his fate in June, when the court deliberates during a fresh sentencing hearing on charges of murder.

Meanwhile, a new book by amateur forensic investigators claims to shed new light on details of the murder of Reeva Steenkamp that Valentine's Day in 2013.

Brothers Thomas and Calvin Mollett's latest book is called Oscar vs Truth,

We end the book off where we state, after considering all the evidence...we came to the conclusion that there was certainly a fight ad that he knew she was behind the door.

Why have the brothers found evidence that was not put forward by the prosecution team?

You have to look at certain areas of evidence that didn't make the court.

Mollett points to evidence such as the metal plate, hole in the wall and a pair of jeans that Oscar was never questioned about.

he also questions Gert Simons' autopsy report.

Gert Simons trivialised a lot of wounds.

But just how qualified are the brothers to make these deductions?

Mollett insists they have consulted with experts.

Look at the arguments and then come back and say you are wrong here or there. I'm absolutely find with that...I'm beyond the point of what is an expert and what is not.
