Default Olympian Oscar "Blade Runner" Pistorius Charged with Murdering his Girlfriend

Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius charged with murder after 'he accidentally shot dead his model girlfriend at his luxury South Africa home when he mistook her for an intruder

South African paralympic star Oscar Pistorius has been charged with murder and is in custody after reportedly shooting his girlfriend dead in the middle of the night after mistaking her for a burglar.

Gunfire was heard inside his Pretoria mansion at 4am this morning and it is believed his partner may have been killed after a Valentine's Day surprise went tragically wrong. The dead woman is Reeva Steenkamp, 30, a former FHM model who had been dating the 26-year-old for two months.

She was shot in the head, the chest and the arm, police have said, and Pistorius will appear in court tomorrow after a hearing scheduled for this afternoon was cancelled.

Pretoria police spokeswoman Denise Beukes confirmed he had been charged with murder, adding they had been called to his home on several occasions since 2011 to deal with 'allegations of a domestic nature'.


Pistorius, 26, is widely known as the Blade Runner, and has also been dubbed 'the fastest man on no legs'. He was the first double amputee to run in the able-bodied Olympics and reached the 400 semi-finals in London 2012.

Pistorius's father Henke said this afternoon his son was 'sad' and a 'bit emotional', adding: 'I don't know nothing. It will be extremely obnoxious and rude to speculate. I don't know the facts. 'If anyone makes a statement, it will have to be Oscar. He's sad at the moment.'



South Africa has some of the world's highest rates of violent crime and many homeowners carry weapons to defend themselves against intruders. An average of nearly 50 people are murdered there each day, while there are also high levels of assault, rape, robbery and carjackings.

Officers are still busy with preliminary investigations at the scene, and statements are being taken from neighbours on the luxury Silver Woods estate. Police say the couple were the only people in the home at the time, there was no sign of forced entry and said the claim that Pistorius had thought his girlfriend was an intruder had not come from them.

Seems that as of right now (according to CNN) that the police are disagreeing with any notion that the suspect acted in self-defense, or that the suspect thought the model was "an intruder". Seems that may have been misreported earlier.

I would assume that's due to the mining industry there. Lots of unsavory characters come down for work.

I also read that all those reports were not coming from police. She was shot times, doesn't it seem like you would realize who it was after the first one or two rounds? Really a sad situation.

Hopefully it was an accident, but it's odd they want to deny bond for him.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt since she was gorgeous and he was lucky to be dating her.

"She was shot in the head, the chest and the arm"

I'm not buying the accidental view. Wouldn't you stop after one shot?

so, just to be clear, you would only shoot once if someone was in your house at night? would you assume you "got him".

i personally know someone who actually immigrated last year to the United States in order to leave South Africa. In her words.."South Africa is very dangerous, especially for white people".

She said she loves America because she can "leave her house at night". She said that her and her husband entered a lottery controlled by the United States that allows only a very few into the United States from South Africa. She feels so fortunate.

this would be the south african stand your ground defense. id have to know the details, but if he's close enough to shoot the person 4 times, id have to say he's close enough to say dont move i have a gun on you right now and i will shoot.

if the story is that he has a loaded gun under his pillow and he wakes up to see an image in his room and fires in the dark, it still doesnt fly. not buying this as an accident.

Did anyone else see where Nike pulled the add featuring this guy and it read, "I am the bullet in the chamber"?

I can see how someone might find that a bit awkward at this point. Kind of an odd add choice anyway, with or without the context.

Anybody actually read the report on this...? You all seem to be missing the fact that the police had been to his residence recently for "domestic isssues" and that neighbors heard "screaming and yelling" coming from the residence prior to the gunshot...

yeah that is what I said in the thread I posted early this morning in the WC. The yahoo article made it sound like accidental shooting and the AP article (via ESPN) made it sound like he murdered her
