Oscar Pistorius Shoots His Girlfriend
Oscar Pistorius is world renowned for his feats in the world of athletics and that too without having both his feet, pardon the pun. The man has carbon fiber legs and yet has managed to give a tough time to, many able bodied athletes around the world. In fact, at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Pistorius became the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics when he entered the men’s 400 meters race and was part of South Africa’s 4 × 400 meters relay team. Hence you can imagine how much of an inspiration he is for people around the world and what a hero he must be in his native country of South Africa.
Therefore, the news that he recently shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, is not only shocking but also pretty unbelievable. It’s been reported by the local media that Pistorius mistook his girlfriend for an intruder and in panic shot her. The investigation of this case is in its initial stages. Brigadier Denise Beukes who is investigating the case said the police have been to Pistorius’s house earlier and that it was after receiving complaints of domestic disturbance. “I can confirm that there have previously been incidents at the home of Oscar Pistorius”. When probed further she revealed that they had involved “allegations of domestic nature”. This piece of revelation too would come as a shock to many, who have always held Pistorius in high esteem. Also, Beukes was surprised with the local media reporting the shooting was an accident and that he had mistaken the victim for an intruder.

Beukes on her part also revealed that Steenkamp was shot four times besides giving details about the make, of the weapon and who it was registered to. “It’s a 9-mm pistol. It is a licensed firearm. It is licensed to Mr. Pistorius” she said. The police have charged Oscar Pistorius with murder, based on the evidence at hand. When asked to comment on the incident Pistorius’s father, Henke Pistorius, said in a telephone interview: “I wasn’t there; I have too much respect for Oscar to speculate. I have no clue what happened. The only person who can make any statement will be Oscar himself”.
Henke Pistorius was also asked if he was aware of any issues Pistorius had in his relationship and said: “Not as far as I know. But I don’t discuss my son’s relationships. I have in fact not met the lady. I don’t know”. He mentioned that Pistorius was training hard and had “been in an excellent frame of mind”. Sarit Tomlinson, Steenkamp’s publicist had good things to say about Steelkamp and Pistorius’s relationship and in fact termed it a “healthy, fabulous relationship”. Interestingly, Steelkamp it seems was looking forward to Valentine’s Day, an evidence of which is a tweet of hers that said: “What do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow???”
