Did Oscar Pistorius intentionally murder Reeva Steenkamp?


Evidence doesn't really support his statement that he mistook her for a burgler

    Indeed! It's so horrific. I feel yes he could have mistaken her for a burgler, but he said he yelled out before firing.If that was the case, wouldn't she had said something back?He said he yelled to her to call the Police, then it dawned on him...hmm

    I think so too.He said something like he heard something and feared for his life and Reeva's so he acknowledged he knew she was there.Lol..I love CSI :-)

    Or maybe Reeva also thought there was an intruder after hearing Oscar shout, so locked the toilet door (and didn't call out/scream) to protect herself from the 'intruder' - not Oscar. This is the tragedy (if Pistorius' version of events is true).

    Thank you for your thoughtful answer! You are right, too. There are many holes in his version of what transpired that night. She was also fully dressed which indicates that it was unlikely that she'd even been in bed at all that night.

    I agree.I don't necessarily think it was "premeditated" as much as maybe temper gone horribly wrong or something.Thank you for your answer! :-)

    I think Pistorius committed murder for two main reasons

    1. Logically you would check whereabouts of girlfriend prior to any action taken.

    2. He alleges he called out to her in the bedroom several times before shooting. Surely, the fact there was no r
