Oscar Pistorius, the Olympian without legs who became famous in 2012, has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend.

Pistorius -- the paralympian known as Blade Runner -- is accused of shooting 30-year-old Reeva Steenkamp in the hand and head -- allegedly with a 9 mm pistol found at the scene.

Pistorius, 26, had reportedly been dating Steenkamp for a few months. She was a law graduate and an aspiring model.

HOLY CRAP......what a waste of life all around...she's dead and IF he really did do it he'll be in prison for the rest of his life....I just hope the police are able to conduct a flawless investigation for the sake of everyone involved.

I'm intrigued at TMZ's neglect to mention that Oscar thought his girlfriend was an intruder and shot in what he believed was self defence. Its a common day occurrence for people to intrude innocent people's homes and rape/murder/harm them in South Africa. Almost EVERY other report on the net has mentioned this VERY important fact. It's very obvious TMZ has deliberately edited this article to suggest that Oscar murdered his girlfriend with some kind of malicious intent, almost like it was planned. It's articles like this that are giving the media it's bad reputation....

the "mistaken for an intruder" story is false

The police spokeswoman Denise Beukes said earlier reports that the suspect had been surprised by his girlfriend and had thought she was an intruder did not come from police.

She said there had been reports from neighbours of shouting and screaming coming from the house earlier in the evening. She said police had been called to the house on previous occasions after reports of "a domestic nature".

I usually don't point out typos and errors, but this is just ridiculous TMZ! I've taken the liberty of editing this for you:

Pistorius -- the paralympian known as Blade Runner -- is accused of shooting 30-year-old Reeva Steenkamp in the hand and head -- allegedly with a 9 mm pistol found at the scene.


Pistorius, 26, had reportedly been dating Sttenkamp (Steenkamp) for a few months (a year). She was a law graduate and an aspiring model.


Steemkamp (Steencamp) was killed inside Pistorius' home in Pretoria, South Africa. There are reports there have been "previous incidents" between the two at the home.


PIstorius (Pistorius) -- considered a national hero is (iN) South Africa -- was the first double amputee to compete in the Olympics.

There have been previous incidences in the past few months? Why stay with him if the relationship has been that volatile after such a short time together. Now it has cost her life.

This is as absurd as the one-armed Def Leppard drummer beating his wife!!!
He'll have fun running from the azz-poundings he'll get in prison on his stumps.
She was gorgeous.

This is really shocking and sad. I wonder what really happened? The local media was speculating that he may have mistaken her for a burglar – a Valentine’s Day surprise gone wrong. A police spokesman said he was traumatized and distraught. He’s supposed to appear in court Friday.

The fallacy of equality. An unrequited proposal?
