GIST: "Oscar Pistorius's defence team on Monday questioned why crime scene photographer Barend van Staden did not include some images in his testimony.........Defence Advocate Barry Roux claims van Staden took a "great number" of images when he arrived at the crime scene shortly before 5am on the day in question.  He said the warrant officer did not include as evidence a photograph of the bottom of Pistorius’s prosthetic legs or any photos from the garage area. Roux claimed that the exclusion of some images would point to tampering on the part of police. But prosecutors denied the defence’s claim."
