South African authorities aren’t buying that para-olympic gold medalist and double amputee Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend, FHM model Reeva Steenkamp, because he thought she was an intruder. In the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day, Pritorius opened fire on Reeva, shooting her in the head, chest, and arm. When the news broke worldwide, initial reports were that this was just a horrible accident, perhaps a unfortunate case of mistaken identity. I, for one, didn’t believe the story.
After the shooting, neighbors alerted authorities saying they had “heard things earlier,” according to Denise Beukes, a police spokeswoman. She did not clarify what the neighbors heard. However, other media outlets are reporting the couple was involved in a knockdown drag out fight that ended with the model lying in a pool of blood. South African media reported that Oscar shot her through a bathroom door.
Pistorius often bragged on twitter about his “head shot” accuracy at the gun range and also his affinity for firearms. Now that may come back to haunt him.
Its a wrap for Pistorius.
