From an unemotional point of view (I am from a family of homicide detectives) … just based on good old fashioned common sense, classic tell-tale signs and behaviour … he did it all right. The guy filts the jealous, controlling personality that we often see involved in crime of passion murders …. and this is no different. Add to that a South African culture with a propensity for violence and gun acceptance.
She definitely locked herself in that bathroom to either a) walk away from their arguing or b) to flee. I do not believe she was necessarily expecting him to come after her with his gun but she was definitely attempting to buy some time in that toilet whilst she perhaps sms’d a friend for advice etc. We’ll never know but circumstantial evidence, behavioural science and forensic evidence are what we can rely on.
As for this ‘they were a happy couple’ garbage …. how many happy couples are masking unhappiness behind closed doors ? This was a woman on the cusp of major success and celebrity. She naturally was trying to perpetuate the happy couple brand. I believe after only a couple months of dating this guy she was starting to have serious doubts and starting to think he was a jealous control freak. She will have been calculating how and when to end the relationship and weighing it up against the ‘pros’ of staying with him because he was .. ‘Pistorius’.
I pray to God this girl and her grieving family get justice and that the wealthy, white, Pistorius ‘clout’ in South Africa does not see him walk away a free man. He has, after all, been wiping his slate of some very unsavoury charges up to this point. No doubt he feels rather ‘untouchable’ these days.
Great points and observations, which I agree with 100%. I find it unfathonable that he has recently requested more lenient bail conditions because he wants to travel outside of the country. “Really? You murdered someone, Buddy!” I simply will never understand the entitlement. EVER. 😦
Too many questions remain unanswered, yet I do believe he is guilty.
I’m with you, Shirley. So many unanswered questions, but my gut tells me he’s lying.
Hmmm, I see I’m in the minority! Always the optimist! lol Hugs Paula x
Someone needs to be the optimist!! 🙂
I am torn on this one. Just don’t know
I was torn for a moment. However, he’s claiming he did not have on his prosthetic legs, yet the trajectory of the bullets indicate he was above Reeva, not below her or even at her level. Plus, he claims he did not know she was not in the bed even though he had to walk past the bed to get to the bathroom after grabbing his gun, which was also next to the bed. At the same time he’s saying it was picth black in the home yet he was able to find his gun and aim and shoot with accuracy through a closed door. He can’t have it both ways. Was it too dark to see? Then why shoot? Why be so careless? And if it was too dark to see, don’t you reach out onto the bed to check for your “much loved” girlfriend? A terrified person would grab his gun, reach for his girlfriend, and call the police or the security in the gated community. His story is just too much for me to believe. 🙂
Thanks for the update Paula I should of followed this story closer.
Not one bloody word, and I do mean bloody.
