According to many reports, neighbors and people around the area heard yelling and other noises.
The platinum-blonde, a paralegal turned model was about to debut on a reality television show “Tropika Island of Treasure 5.” Both were icons in the South African style and celebrity scene.
Despite Pistorius having had both his legs amputated at the knee as an infant, he ran with such speed that a 2011 Nike promotion included an advertisement with the theme, “I am the bullet in the chamber.” Due to the latest news, Nike has pulled this ad.
There have been previous reports of domestic violence at Pistorius’ home and also of reports that the model’s death could have been an accident to the effect that “Pistorius accidentally shot her thinking she was an intruder.”
In Steenkamp’s Twitter profile, she describes herself as an “SA Model, Cover Girl, Tropika Island of Treasure Celeb Contestant, Law Graduate, Child of God.”
What do you think? Cold blooded murder or accident?
