Did Oscar Pistorius intentionally murder Reeva Steenkamp?
Evidence doesn't really support his statement that he mistook her for a burgler
Yes, he fired several shots. I do not believe for one minute that he mistook her for a burglar. He saw and shot her before she hid in the bathroom, when he then fired more shots. I'm sorry but I think this man killed Reeva.
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! :-)
Does it really matter if it was premeditated or not? Murder is murder...plain and simple.
True. However, there is a difference between murdering someone with intention of doing it or accidentally killing someone. The more I hear, the more I think it was intentional, but I don't think he was in a right state of mind when he did it.
It sounds like he made up the burglary story. However it appears security cameras show she arrived the day before. Therefore she did not come into the house in the middle of the night. Apparently he's never watched an episode of CSI.
yeah, seems that the evidences are pointing the finger at him than the so-called burglar. Hope that the truth will be out soon. Poor lady.
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
There are too many strange things at play for him to be innocent. He thought there was a burglar, but didn't think to check on her. He didn't call out to ask who was there, just shot through the door. When he had shot through the door, he went and got back into bed, which is when he realised she wasn't there. Surely, if he was shooting a gun, and she had been asleep in bed, she would have been woken up by the noise?
There's so many questions. I see some of his behavior during the crime was totally off the radar. He went up and down stairs twice. Once to open the door and once to go back and get her. Your dying spouse who you are in love with is dying in front of you and you go down to open the front door first!! He calls someone he knows about whats happened not the police. He seemed to have alot of time to waste with his girlfriend whom he said he was/is in love with laying there dying!! He appears to be a spoilt boy. I seen him at the Olympics throwing a fit about something!! He thinks he's untouchable. He's had people lying for him over gun crime before and im sure much more!! Her family didn't know him, there was no bond there, it was only 2/3 months there were together Only his family know him, 'And they do'!!!
. I'm sure he really isn't bothered about what he done just whats coming his way. I hope.
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
Why did this girl lock herself in the toilet? I have never experienced a woman or a man in a relationship locking themselves in when going to the toilet during the night, with only their partner in the adjoining bedroom or bathroom. It would be a gesture by one's partner saying "I am NOT in a relationship with you". Not so?
To my mind this says everything. By locking the door she was seeking safety from Pistorius.
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).
His behavior is inconsistent with his training, and past behaviors speak against him. I have dealt with home intrusion, and I made certain I knew exactly where my wife and child were before I drew my weapon. That individual was turned over to sheriff's deputies, but I would not have risked a shot that would have harmed my loved ones, and neither would anyone else who purports to be experienced with firearms. Pistorius failed to define or identify the threat. What if Ms. Steenkamp was being held in the bathroom with the perp? No, he fired through a bathroom door. It makes much better sense to wait until an intruder exits the bathroom, as eventually one must, but to fire through the door four times evidences a different priority. I realize this is not a jury trial (the judge must decide); however, if I was a member of the jury in such a case, the evidence weighs heavily against him.
Yeah I think he killed her. In his point of view when he is calling out to Reeva to call the cops and she didn't answer is suspicious she could of answer saying "I can't I'm in the toilet" and when Oscar is yelling at the so called burglar in the toilet to get out, why didn't she answer? I say he intentionally killed Reeva. Having these questions popped up in my head, "why didn't she answer Oscar when he was calling out her name to ring the cops and even when Oscar was trying to tell the burglar to get out?"
His money says he didn`t... apparently the judge as well...

If the Christian god is omnipotent then why would it need to order the murder of it's son so that it can forgive? No Christian can answer this because it is utter nonsense. But I challenge any christian to give it a try.
