Supposedly, she was trying to surprise him at his home for Valentine's Day, and he thought she was a burglar and shot her.

If that really is the truth (skeptical) it is incredibly sad.

There did not appear to be signs of forced entry at the home, Beukes said.
She also said there had been "previous incidents" at the home -- "allegations of a domestic nature."
Beukes said that police were alerted to the shooting by neighbors and that residents "heard things earlier."
A pistol was recovered at the scene, police said.


He doesn't have leg to stand on.

Probably not a good idea to surprise someone with a gun, I guess. Seems weird he shot her twice though.

Apparently police are denying reports that he thought there was a burglar inside his house. There is more to this story than what we know right now.

Sad, Pistorius seemed like a really good dude and an inspirational athlete.

Wow. What is happening to Nike's sponsor athletes.

Horrifying news. So many different stories of it possibly being an accident, a surprise, past histories of domestic abuse, etcetcetc. Hope to hear the truth soon.

Man's an inspiration because of everything he's overcome but his legacy is completely tarnished and reputation destroyed if he's convicted of murder.

Oh the irony.

from CNN:

Nike pulled an ad featuring Pistorius from its website Thursday. The ad showed Pistorius taking off for a run, and contained the words" I am the bullet in the chamber."

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Th Blade Runner is in court today, pleading for bail. Prosecutors have have said it was premeditated murder, thus making it harder to get bail. Oscar Pictorius said it was an accident.

The prosecutor siad his girfreind was shot 4 times while hiding in the bathroom. A bat was also used to break down the door.

Oscar said it was an accident, he thought there was an intruder in the house.

So he didn't hear her saying anything when he was beating the door down with a bat? Then he shot four times randomly? Riiiiiight.

I feel bad for his fans. There are probably people out there who worshiped this guy - had posters of him up in their homes, took his word as gospel, and aspired to be like him in their lives. Can't imagine the betrayal they're feeling right now. To realize that your values and ethics are modeled after someone who could do this must be devastating.

Same goes with fans of someone like Lance Armstrong or Marion Jones

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

So many instances of athletes disappointing their fans after being such inspirations with their career achievements.

Pistorius, Lance Armstrong (cheated using steroids for his Tour titles), Mante T'eo (wins the championship only to have been a fraud... about having a dead girlfriend :picard:), farther back there could even be the story of Tiger Woods' affair (yeah it was awhile ago but it still comes to mind).

I know they're all human and just have more exposure than most people, but "with great power (and prestige) comes great responsibility" and they should still consider the consequences of their actions, not only for their own career but for the negative influence on and tarnishing of their fans' perceptions, since their names are so widely known and previously reputable.

What a moron. So he's trying to say he woke up and thought his girlfriend was beside him. Then heard an 'intruder' in the washroom. Feeling 'vulnerable' with his '9mm pistal' he just decides to open fire while the door is still closed.

How about this version; Neither were sleeping and in fact there was a huge argument. The woman barricaded herself in the washroom and an emotional Pistorius opened fire on her while she was hiding.

What a coward I hope he gets sent to a prison with no handicap access and take away his prosthetics.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

A bloody shoe found at the scene that didn't fit him seems more likely.

I hear he has reached out to Ravens LB Ray Lewis on how to handle a murder charge.
