Oscar Pistorius' Girlfriend

Father Lashes Out ...

Oscar Will Suffer If Lying

2/23/2013 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0223-oscar-pistorius-reeva-steenkamp-gettyReeva Steenkamp's father is speaking out about his daughter's death, saying Oscar Pistorius will suffer the consequences of a guilty conscience if it turns out he's lying about Reeva's killing.

Barry Steenkamp told the South African newspaper Beeld, "It doesn't matter how much money [Oscar] has and how good his legal team is, he will have to live with his conscience if he allows his legal team to lie for him."

Barry continues, "But if he is telling the truth, then perhaps I can forgive him one day. If it didn't happen the way he said it did, he must suffer, and he will suffer ... only he knows."

Oscar was released from jail Friday on bail. He is facing a charge of premeditated murder.

Hardly "lashing" out TMZ. Jeez, you really have cheapened yourselves lately. You're worse than ANY tabloid now. Used to be fun. Now it's a lot of BS about foorball players and rappers that no one knows except the people who work there.

Well if you tell the truth, you may be in jail, but you can have a clean concience. If you lie, you may be free, but you will always feel trapped and looking over your shoulder for someone to find out the truth.


I think he is lying, but I wonder how all there he is mentally. Maybe he is half blocking out what he did because he can't face it or is only partly aware of it because he doesn't have control of his mind. He looks and acts like a robot when you see him in interviews or pictures.


He is a very stiff and unemotional person. It is hard to believe that Reeva felt a connection with this guy. Her dad seems like another person overly willing to trust and forgive.


The guy is lying, but why is the question. It doesn't matter how many robberies are in your neighborhood, you look to make sure the people in your house are safe first before you go hunting after intruders.


Even if Oscar doesn't have much of a concience or awareness of what he did, I think his actions will still come back on him.

This is why there is a legal system. We all need to see what the evidence is before making a judgment. I agree that it looks suspicious but we don't know the whole story yet.

What a sick, sad, mess. This guy must be the luckiest in the world of these are the strongest words her father has to say. Even if it were an accident, you'd think he'd still be angry at the cir***stances surrounding his daughter's death. And, of course, this was no accident. The media, the judge, and now her dad all seem to want to kiss his @$$.
