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.”
