'Oscar certainly brings new meaning to taking the girlfriend out on valentines day.'

I saw a report that said he will still be at the Paralympics in Rio 2016.

He's been pre-selected for the 100m, 200m and 10m Running Target events

Well, I guess it was just an accident. He and his family said it was not a murder so that pretty well sews it up does it not?

Obviously something went seriously, and sadly, awry...

SA has more guns per square mother [email protected] than the USA.
Caco, jealousy makes you nasty....

Over the years I have rows with ex wives and partners and believe me if anyone had a gun I would have been shot.
I have had similar rows.
I have one and had up to six guns and NO-ONE has been shot.
The argument that having guns makes you predisposed to shooting people
is so tired, it's almost comatose.

.

Good to know you are a stable soul Unstable !

If one is inclined to violence, then access to a gun can make it possible to wreak immediate havoc as may have occurred in the Pistorius case.

Let justice prevail. He may be innocent but somehow it doesn't look good for the blade guy.

I have guns and occasionally Mrs TTN and I have a row.

By the time I went and got the two keys to the gun cabinet (kept in separate hiding places) and opened the cabinet, then remembered that the cartridges are kept in a separate locked box, I'd have forgotten what the argument was about !

Having a loaded pistol to hand probably wasn't the best plan for someone like Oscar who was known for having a very short fuse.

Funny, that..... It was meant to be "Mentally Unstable Load" but was too
much of a handful to type, so I shortened it....

It's not the first time a bloke has gone to bed legless and shot in his girlfriend's face

The Pretorius family have done an excellent job of protesting vigorously at the outrage committed against Oscar by his being accused of murder for what was just a terrible accident. The Steenkamp family and any grief potential there has been neatly sidestepped by a publicity machine which has quite possibly already achieved its presumed goal of requiring an acquittal for the accused.

I think one might expect, under the terrible circumstances, that the family would show solidarity with the accused. It would be abnormal if they didn't.

I don't think he's innocent, and I don't think he'll get any preferential treatment because of who he is, in fact the opposite is more likely to be the case given the racist nature of South Africa's new 'democracy' and the fact that he is from a wealthy Afrikaans family.

Couple of folks with similar disabilities. Both of them are humble, polite and easy going, in stark contrast to the spoiled brat behaviour of slebs who haven't achieved anything near what these two guys have done.

Interesting stories coming to light. Shot in the hip in the bedroom and ran to the toilet where she was shot three more times. Blood covered cricket bat, and supposition of rage caused by steroid use.Bloodied cricket bat found at Pistorius home: report MYREPUBLICA.com - News in Nepal: Fast, Full & Factual, POLITICAL AFFAIRS, BUSINESS & ECONOMY, SOCIAL AFFAIRS, LIFESTYLE, SPORTS, OPINION, INTERVIEW, INTERNATIONAL, THE WEEK news in English in Nepal

Looks (provided the reported shot in the hip is really so) as if he wanted to make her legless as well.

1. Pretty small town model looking for exposure and a quick ascent up the fame ladder.
2. Dates Olympic star pre London 2012.
3. Not really interested in the double amputee (what happens after retirement?)
4. Double times with non-amputee sportsman, unknown to OP.
5. OP reads iPhone messages on Valenties Day and discovers the truth.
6. Loses the plot after a boozy steriod filled evening.
7. Kills g/f

Remove the fame 'wow' factor. This happens every week all round the world.

We can all speculate, but at least let's do so based on correct facts.

How did OP get from his bed out onto the balcony (to retrieve the 'fan') then get into and out of the bathroom (not the toilet) then retrieve his pistol from under his bed, then shoot through the toilet door before putting on the lights and putting on his prosthetic limbs?

He has partial mobility on his stumps. The guardian coverage from today has been excellent.

He is claiming his bedroom was pitch black and that he thought his girlfriend was still in bed (the bed he himself got out of).

How big is his bed and would you not rouse your partner if you believed you had heard intruders?

Sounds like complete bolleaux to me...

His statement to court says:
From the balconey to the bedroom to get the gun from under their bed.
From the bedroom and then shoot throught the toilet door.
On his stumps.
There in seems to be the problem in his story, he didn't check Reeva when he got the pistol.
