Oscar Pistorious Crime Scene Photos (18+ WARNING: SOME PHOTOS MIGHT BE DISTURBING!)
Oscar Pistorius is a leading South African runner, who won attention as an athlete with a disability competing at a high level, including multiple Paralympic Games and the 2012 Summer Olympics. Reeva Steenkamp, a model, was his girlfriend. In the early morning of Thursday, 14 February 2013, Steenkamp was shot and killed by Pistorius at his Pretoria home. He acknowledged that he shot Steenkamp to death and said that he mistook her for an intruder. He was taken into police custody and formally charged with murder.
Today he has pleaded not guilty to all charges, including the “wilful and intentional murder of Reeva Steenkamp”.
CBC asks: “Is it a country so crime-ridden and haunted by the fear and distrust of the apartheid legacy that shooting through a toilet door in a blind panic in the middle of a guarded, gated community is conceivable?
Or is it a country where gun culture rules and young men in particular are raised with a sense of violence, anger and impunity?
Here are some of the crime scene photos that have been shown during Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial in South Africa.
