Oscar Pistorius is both back in the news and back in the courts. The family of the blade runner who is charged in the brutal murder of Rita Steenkamp on Valentines day is reportedly shaken up over the release of the bloody crime scene photos leaked by a television station in London. The photos reportedly included the bathroom that was full of Steenkamp’s blood where she had been shout through the door multiple times.  What did the Pistorius  expect, this was a brutal killing where an innocent woman was shoot to her death. The family issued these statements; “We were shaken by the graphic images, leaked into the public domain this week, of the accident scene at Oscar’s house,” the family said, appearing to confirm they are from Pistorius’ home. “It has always been our plea that the legal process be allowed its run its course with integrity. The leaking of evidential material into the public domain before the court case does not advance this process.” There are others that are hoping that the legal system is allowed to run its course.  They would include the family of Steenkamp who lost her life at a very young age. For them, there is the nightmare that includes sitting through the trial of Oscar Pistorius when the prosecution presents their case against the blade runner. Today will be Pistorius’ first court appearance since he was freed on bail Feb. 22. The family contends evidence will prove his contention that the shooting was an accident. This guy has to be insane. How can he contend that the shooting was accidental when he knew Steenkamp was in the house?       will be Pistorius’ first court appearance since he was freed on bail Feb. 22. The family contends evidence will prove his contention that the shooting was an accident. The 26-year-old runner is charged with premeditated murder for the Feb. 14 death of Reeva Steenkamp. He denies the charge, saying he shot the 29-year-old model by mistake thinking she was an intruder in his home. “As a family we fully stand behind Oscar as he prepares to appear in court this Tuesday,” the statement said. “We believe in him, love him and will support him every step of the way in what lies ahead. We continue to have great faith in the South African legal justice system and believe that Oscar’s account of what happened on that terrible night in February will be borne out by the evidence that the defense team will lead in court.” Sky News said last week it “obtained” the collection of images from inside Pistorius’ upscale house in Pretoria, but did not say from where. They purport to show the bloodied toilet cubicle where Steenkamp was hit three times through a wooden door. There are also images of the toilet door with two markers which show bullet holes, Sky said. Pistorius shot four times through the locked door, hitting Steenkamp with three of the bullets. Some of the images show a bloody trail out of the toilet cubicle and into the main bathroom, including a footprint in blood, plus photographs of the passageway leading from Pistorius’ bedroom to the bathroom. Sky also said police officers are being investigated after a watch went missing from Pistorius’ home in the aftermath of the shooting. Pistorius has been living — sometimes in isolation, according to his family — at his uncle’s house since being bailed. Since then, there have only been two reported public sightings of him: a grainy cellphone photograph of the runner wearing carbon fiber blades at his practice track, plus a visit to a Johannesburg restaurant. The multiple Paralympic champion has also given up competition for the rest of the year to focus on his trial. He faces a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years in prison if convicted. ___ Follow Gerald Imray at www.twitter.com/GeraldImrayAP Also on HuffPost: Loading Slideshow Reeva Steenkamp In this undated handout publicity photo supplied by Stimulii taken on the island of Jamaica, Reeva Steenkamp poses on set during the shooting of the reality show Tropika Island of Treasure which premieres on state television Saturday, Feb 16, 2013.
