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.

Tmz isn't reporting the whole story. According to yahoo he mistook her for a burglar entering his home at 3A, but no one is reporting how she got in. A key, broke a window, key factors and differences between murder and protection.

Black and Hispanic Women - keep away from pig skinned, snow apes. They're violent as heck. They murder their wives,they rape children and they mass murder. This murderer is living in Africa where his rapist grandfathers destroyed.They stole, raped and murdered the Natives just so they could get their hands on their resources and they're now complaining that they have home invasions? Crawl back to your cold caves pigs.

This story really broke my heart when I read it early this morning. His story was so inspiring. The fact is we don't know these people that we see on TV.

SA - GIRL    

Rumor here in SA is that she was sneaking into the house to prepare a valentines day surprise, and he shot her because he thought she was a burglar. Not confirmed though.

Oh my God how sad, this gorgeous girl was killed. He was lucky she was even with him considering his disabilities . A girl like that could have had anybody. She picked him and now she's dead, horrible

Drago .Shame on you!:P But you notice we are seeing more & more of these types of cases. One partner stays, even after domestic violence or cheating & for what ever reason clings to the idea that there is a real relationship there. We know how this stuff ends. One kills the other out of anger/jealously. Some making comments seem to think she stayed for money or fame but is that any worse than those who stay for financial reasons when the guy is just "working class"? No real difference in motive. & the ending is so pitiful.

What retard doesn't even take a moment to look at who he's about to shoot? You have to be a completely dumb ass to believe his excuse for shooting her!!!! It's a story his lawyer came up with!! But really the Ruth is probably that he's an insecure jealous guy whos rage was outta control at the thought a gorgeous girl like that would leave him for someone else. The bastard killed her. How do her parents begin to conprihend this???? To lose a daughter like that
