New testimonies in the trial of Oscar Pistorius could be damning for the Olympic and Paralympic track star but a new interesting detail—perhaps trivial compared in the scheme of things—has been revealed by investigators: the “Blade Runner” could have been browsing the popular porn site half an hour after his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp arrived in the house.

The court proceeding for one of the high-profile cases involving an athlete in recent years is being held at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, South Africa.

The 27-year-old Pistorius is accused of killing his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day in 2013 and if proven guilty of premeditated murder could face life imprisonment and a mandatory 25 years sentence.

Police technology expert Mike Sales was called to the stand on Wednesday and he told the court of the findings with regards to the gadgets recovered during the investigation. Eight monitors were on hand during the trial showing web history of an iPad 3 found at the scene.

One of the web sites was the porn site, “YouJizz” which according to investigators were browsed and viewed from the gadget.

Pistorius also did Google searches on a “2011 Aston Martin Rapide”, a “2007 Ford Ranger” and the final search was for a “Morgan Aeromax”. All three are known expensive luxury cars.

Barry Roux, the defense attorney contended that the police could not be sure of who had accessed the sites or how many people were viewing the site, to which the Sales agreed.

The new evidence may or may not have a direct effect or bearing on the case but it gives probable clues to what sort of person Pistorius is: like most males, he’s into fast cars and a little bit of porn viewing on the side.
