Oscar, an avid tweeter, wrote last November that he thought there was an ‘intruder’ in his house but it turned out to be his washing machine. Do you think he meant to shoot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp?
Oscar Pistorius is charged with murder for allegedly killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The Paralympian reportedly thought that she was an intruder and judging by his past tweets, it’s clear that he’s thought someone was in his house before. But do you think this means it was all an accident?
Oscar’s Tweets About An Intruder
Oscar wrote in November that he thought someone was trying to break in: “Nothing like getting home to hear the washing machine on and thinking its an intruder to go into full combat recon mode into the pantry! waa.”
Oscar told the New York Times in January 2012 that one night an alarm in his house went off so he went downstairs with his gun.
Oscar’s Girlfriend Found Dead In His Home
South African police arrived at Oscar’s house after they responded to someone hearing gunshots. Oscar was in court on Feb. 15 and was officially charged with murder. The Magistrate Desmond Nair postponed his bail hearing which is now scheduled for Feb. 19. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel says they will be looking to charge Oscar with “premeditated murder.”
Prosecutors will say that Oscar had a violent past and that neighbors heard shouting coming from his house on the night of Reeva’s murder.
Do you think that Oscar really thought Reeva was an intruder or was this premeditated. Tell us what you think of this horrific tragedy.
