Oscar Pistorius charged with murder after girlfriend shot dead

South African athlete will appear in court later on Thursday after Reeva Steenkamp was found dead at his home in Pretoria
 
South African police have arrested star sprinter Oscar Pistorius for allegedly shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home in Pretoria.

Police said they had opened a murder investigation after a 30-year-old woman was found dead in the upmarket Silver Lakes gated community on the outskirts of the capital, where the Paralympic and Olympic runner lives.

"We found a 9mm pistol at the scene. A 26-year-old man was taken into custody," a police spokeswoman said.

Details about the incident remain unclear. There was speculation in the local media that Pistorius may have mistaken her for a burglar and the shooting could have been a result of a Valentine's Day surprise gone wrong. Local media suggested that Steenkamp may have been trying to surprise her boyfriend in his home on the heavily guarded compound and had been mistaken for an intruder. She was shot four times in the head and the arm.

"I can confirm that a woman has been fatally wounded in a shooting at Oscar Pistorius's house," said the police spokeswoman. "A 26-year-old man has been taken into custody," she said. "The incident happened at 3am. We received a call and attended the scene. The call did not come from the man in custody but from another person. Currently there is an inquiry into what happened."

There was a large police presence outside Pistorius's house and media descended on the estate where the shooting happened. Pistorius will appear in court later on Thursday. A police spokesman said the sprinter was distraught. "We can't comment on his emotional wellbeing, but he is traumatised after losing someone close to him," he said.

Steenkamp, 30, a well-known South African model, had been dating Pistorius since November last year and was due to appear in a reality TV show called Tropika Island of Treasure. The law graduate from Port Elizabeth gave an interview to the Sunday Times in South Africa last week where she described her boyfriend as "an impeccable man who always has her best interests at heart".

In the last 24 hours she was tweeting about her hopes for Valentine's Day, writing: "What do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow??? #getexcited #ValentinesDay." In one of her last tweets she responded to one follower who said she was going to make her husband a card with her children. Steenkamp wrote: "That sounds amazing! Wow that's what it's all about! It should be a day of love for everyone Smiley may it be blessed!"

Steenkamp's publicist Sarit Tomlinson told Sky News that she was a "talented bright young girl" whose star was rising. "She was the sweetest human being and an absolute angel on Earth," she said. "She was the kindest most unbelievable girl." She said Steenkamp and Pistorius had been together for a couple of months in "a healthy fabulous relationship".
 

On Steenkamp's Facebook page where she described herself as "SA Model, FHM Cover Girl, Tropika Island of Treasure Celeb Contestant, Law Graduate, Ambassador" tributes poured in. Sibi Tshego Sibanda wrote: "Heaven has gained an Angel. Rest in peace," and Elmarie Hattingh wrote: "Rest in Peace Reeva, May God be with the family and friends."

South Africa has some of the world's highest rates of violent crime and some homeowners carry weapons to defend themselves against intruders.

There were indications that Pistorius did have fears about his safety. In an interview with the Daily Mail before the London 2012 Games it was revealed he slept with a pistol next to his bed and kept a machine gun by a window. Pistorius had been arrested previously. In September 2009 he was arrested for assault after slamming a door on a woman. Family and friends at the time said it was an accident.

Pistorius, known as Blade Runner because of the carbon fibre prosthetic blades he wears to race, is the world's best-known Paralympic star. He was born without fibulas in both legs and had his legs amputated as an 11-month-old. He made history at London 2012 when he became the first double amputee to run in both the Olympics and Paralympics, running in the 400m and 4x400m relay at the Olympics. During and after the competition he regularly tweeted pictures of him and his girlfriend together.

The Johannesburg-born athlete won a legal battle over his blades with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in 2008 for the right to compete in able-bodied competition.

Well, the "overcompensating" theory about people with a handicap rings true. No legs, sharp eye, quick fingers.

Yeah, you just lack the needed negativity real losers master. Just think that no one else now will be able to fuck her and you'll feel somehow a bit better.

South African star sprinter Oscar Pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend and will appear in a Pretoria court on Thursday afternoon, police have confirmed.

Pistorius, 26, is alleged to have killed his 30-year-old girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who died of gunshot wounds at his home in a gated-community in the city this morning.

Police spokeswoman Denise Beukes said earlier reports that the suspect had been surprised by his girlfriend and had thought she was an intruder did not come from police.

She said there had been reports from neighbours of shouting and screaming coming from the house earlier in the evening. She said police had been called to the house on previous occasions after reports of "a domestic nature".

4 shots when a simple roundhouse kick would have done the job.

What's the deal with gun control in South Africa?   Surely white civilians aren't allowed to defend themselves from the skyrocketing black on white assaults and murders?

Paralympics? Dude wasn't paralyzed, he had an advantage if you ask me. If I was really paralyzed I'd be pissed I was in the same boat as this dude.

It's strange though, why we feel more for those who look good that dies.

Thoughts like, What a Pity she was killed etc.

Beneath the skin and muscle we all look the same though.

What a way to celebrate Valentines Day.

That's the last time she'll be hiding his blades and having sex with the gardner in front of Oscar.
