Oscar Pistorius reportedly spoke to his ex-girlfriend on the eve of Reeva Steenkamps's death. According to Eye Witness News, the athlete had a nine-minute long conversation with Jenna Edkins just hours before killing Reeva in February last year.

The police did not uncover this piece of evidence, according to the site. Oscar, who will be sentenced on 13 October after being convicted of culpable homicide, was repertedly on the phone when he arrived at his complex on 13 February at about 6pm.

The site reported that Jenna's number was saved as "Babyshoes". Jenna allegedly declined to answer specific questions from EWN, saying only that it is common knowledge that she and Oscar have remained friends.

The prosecution also declined to comment on how this potential piece of evidence was missed. The defence has also not responded to questions.

Oscar and Jenna dated on and off for five years from 2008.
