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.

Pistorius -- considered a national hero in South Africa -- was the first double amputee to compete in the Olympics.

Impossible he is a 'hero', right?? My husband is a left leg amputee, the whole fight for someone with high tech prosthesis to compete against two legged runners has always bugged me. Yes you have an advantage, you won't pull muscles, or break bones, wear down cartilage or ligaments. Yes your molded curved, bounce back construction does indeed give you an advantage. You are no hero with your $50,000 leg. You want to be a hero and compete against regular two legged runners than you try doing it on the $3,000 typical prosthetic leg most amputees spend their lives with, if you can still beat the two legged guy then maybe I'll buy into your 'hero' title. And now to read that this 'hero'.. this fighter who beat the odds that we are all supposed to look up to.. is just some loser a$$ who shot and killed his girlfriend. Rot in hell.. or prison. I hope you spend the rest of your life in a wheelchair or better yet having to wear the painful, heavy and often ill fitting prosthesis that most 'non-hero' amputees have to spend their life wearing.

He must have had a good reason to kill her. Maybe he made her mad so that's okay. Afterall that's what Dorner apologists believe. In their sick and twisted world there must be a justification for a needless murder. Very sad to hear and I hope he gets thrown in jail. He went from a person that handicapped people looked up to, to a cold blooded killer. What a terrible way to ruin your life.

† She is truly beautiful, as the candles enhance, and illuminate her soul. Elohim knows those who belong to him, as no one can ever take them out of his hand. The heart is the measure of one's life, and surely Reeva's heart was pure in the eyes of El. I hope to meet her in the Kingdom, as we remain confident. Our prayers are with her family, and we hope that they may realize that the world in which we live is passing away. How, how could any take away such beauty given to one, from He who created all things.
