The Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius’ Official Statement Rejecting Murder Charge “In the Strongest Terms” Against Him for Killing Girl Friend Reeva Steenkamp
Oscar Pistorius released a statement regarding the murder charges against him. He is denying the murder charges “in the strongest terms”. Pistorius faces murder charges as the prosecutors in Johannesburg, South Africa are charging Oscar Pistorius’ with premeditated murder. So much for the accidental murder story that was speculated by the media initially after the incident was reported. Some thought that Oscar Pistorius might have mistakenly thought his girl friend was an intruder and shot her. The forensics will tell the story in this case. For the Blade Runner’s sake, he better hope that the fatal gun shot wounds to his girl friend were not from close range.
Oscar Pistorius’ arrives for court appearance hiding his face from the media.
“Oscar Pistorius has made history as an Olympic and Paralympic sportsman and has been an inspiration to others the world over.
“He has made it very clear that he would like to send his deepest sympathies to the family of Reeva. He would also like to express his thanks through us today for all the messages of support he has received — but as stated our thoughts and prayers today should be for Reeva and her family – regardless of the circumstances of this terrible, terrible tragedy.
“We will endeavour to issue other statements as matters develop but in these circumstances I am sure you appreciate it is very difficult to answer any more specific questions. Thank you very much for your attention.”

This guy is full of it. He didn’t mistake her for a burgler unless he was drunk on dope or alcohol.
There were issues between the two of them.
This is no way to solve problems. If that is all he has in the way of good sense, then let the courts do what is needed and put him away.
This story really saddens me.
There is so much violence in S Africa, and it is a known fact that Pistorius was a strong firearms enthusiast.
What happened? Why would he so violently kill this beautiful woman?
Will we ever really know the true story?
NG, Why would being a strong firearms enthusiast have anything to do with it? I believe drugs were envolved just like most of these people use.
All my family is in South Africa and they said there is a side to him that is not likeable. He has quite a temper and very controlling. A friend that was close to the deceased girlfriend, said that Oscar threatened him on many occasions even though they were just friends. I think that says that this guy was abusive…. very sad. She was very much against domestic violence but seems to be caught in his web. My family also said more will eventually come out about Oscar Pistorius.
NG, there is a lot of violence in South Africa but Oscar lived in one of the best kept security complex’s in Pretoria with high security and Body Guards. It is very exclusive and very expensive to live in a sub division like he did. So he had no reason to assume that their was a burglar in his bathroom…… a very sad excuse. I again conclude they had a altercation and his temper got the better of him. His family is extremely wealthy and well known in South Africa so he will have the best lawyers to defend him.
New information points to a rage killing. This guy could have been on steroids. The whole scene is he was attacking the woman for some reason.
The skull was crushed with a cricket bat. Home invader? Absolutely not.
To me: maybe the fact she was SHOT by a paranoid gun owner is worth remembering
Mary— yes, I have also heard about this other side to Oscar.
He was apparently abusing steroids and alcohol at the same time…not a good mix. Combine that with his out of control jealousy and we have a Crime of Passion.
With all due respect…doesn’t matter if Pistorius’ family hires him the dream team….it appears as if Pistorius is a murdering coward. He shot her in the face through a door and beat her with a cricket bat!
Such a shame, and this former hero of mine does not deserve another day of Freedom.
Shame on him! I am so disgusted and his fame should not turn him in to South Africa’s version of the US’s OJ Simpson.
Domestic Violence and women abusers suck! Period. Any man, woman or child that abuses another Man woman or Child needs to get a life and be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.
I have absolutely Zero tolerance for anyone who commits these type of acts,
