Pretoria: The Eyewitness News (EWN) have revealed that Oscar Pistorius spoke to an ex-girlfriend, Jenna Edkins, just minutes before he came home to Steenkamp on the fateful night of February 14, 2013.

Edkins, who dated the runner on and off for several years, was stored in his phone under the pseudonym "Babyshoes".

The call was never raised during the trial, but Eyewitness News (EWN) reported that both the prosecution and Pistorius's lawyers knew about it, and that Edkins was prepared to testify in the runner's defence if the phone call was used.
