The family of double amputee Oscar Pistorius are deny reports that the man who shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the early morning hours of Valentines day is Suicidal. The former Olympic runner who ran on two blades is facing financial ruins over the cost of defending himself at a trial. The family is saying, Pistorius is still in deep mourning over the tragic events that took place on February 14th. Arnold Pistorius who Oscar is living with made the statement on behalf of the family. Oscar is forced to live at his uncles house due to the fact that his house is still a murder scene. The uncle also said; “From the moment we were first informed about the dreadful event of the early morning of 14 February 2013, we have worked hard to come to terms with the sad news of Reeva Steenkamp’s death and Oscar’s role in it,” He then went on to say’ “Oscar, broken as he currently is, believes he has a purpose in life and is working towards that,” We have to wonder if Pistorius is in deep mourning over the death of Steenkamp, or if he is deep mourning over his financial loses he is face with. Reports of his management team dumping him surfaced last week, he is losing sponsors and he is said to have to be selling off his investments to pay his legal team. Pistorius should have thought of the consequences before taking the life of Steenkamp. What was this guy thinking? He knows the truth of what happened and when we hear his version of the story, it is very difficult to believe. Who wakes up in the middle of the night, straps on 2 artificial legs and then proceeds some 21 feet down a hallway and shoots through a bathroom door multiple times killing anyone without first issuing a warning? If he is guilty of premeditated murder of Reeva that the prosecution is charging him with, then he probably doesn’t have the guts to take his own life. He likes assaulting women, not himself.
