The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) stated that it will not take action on reports that steroids were found in the mansion of Oscar Pistorius, the South African Olympian who is on trial for the murder of his model girlfriend.
Pistorius, who competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London as the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics, is accused of killing Reeva Steenkamp in his home on Valentine’s Day.
South African media have recently reported that steroids were found in Pistorius’ home.
According to The Sun, the Olympic runner could have been on the performance enhancing drug when he allegedly shot Steenkamp.
Craig Spence, IPC’s head of communications, told The Telegraph, “It is purely speculation at the moment and it is a police matter involving a criminal case, so we will not be contacting the South African police.”
The IPC representative added that Pistorius was tested while in London for the Olympics and the tests were negative.
