3. Several police blunders have plagued the investigation. Botha initially said the two witnesses who heard screaming from Pistorius' house on the night of the killing were 600 meters away. He later changed the distance to 300 meters. Other admissions: Investigators missed a spent bullet in the toilet and didn't take pictures of a box of bullets but snapped photos of Pistorius' medals.

A murder suspect, who was at large for 15 months, finally tried to turn himself in to Swedish police only to be told that the police station was closed.

Saleh Hadri allegedly killed a man in November 2011 and has been on the run ever since, Sweden's The Local reports.

When he went to the police station in Malmo, Sweden and rang the doorbell, he was told they could not help him because the station was closed.

"Closed? I'm suspected of murder and a wanted man," he allegedly said in the intercom. "You guys really want to get a hold of me."

Hadri was then directed to another station, where he went and was eventually taken into custody. No officers were sent down from the first station to escort him to the second one.
