Surely what's become a tragic love tale between the late Reeva Steenkamp who was shot dead by her boyfriend, the famous olympic champion Oscar Pistorius on valentine's day in 2013... is looking pretty much like an episode of SCORNED on crime and investigation channel with too many evidences that's fast turning it into a crime of PASSION.
But mehn, if South Africa had their own Oscars, Pistorius should win it for 'Best Actor' hands down...hahaha...with all that dramatic crying and vomitting as he was shown gruesome photos of her dead body. And the rather obvious CIRCUS he was making, apologizing in public to Reeva's family...something he never did privately in one year since her death... Yet trying to make himself out to be a victim instead of the narcissist that he's been POTRAYED to be. Especially with him getting away with several bad behaviours in the past and friends always willing to take the blame.
What's sad is that Reeva had been in a previous ABUSIVE relationship only to leave it and die by the hands of another man she had grown to love. It never fails to amaze me, how beautiful, intelligent and warm hearted women find such men and even tolerate their constantly VOLATILE emotions. In recent news, passionate crime is fast becoming a norm in our society, with horrid tales of abusive boyfriends physically battering or assaulting their partners whom they 'claim' to love and husbands killing their wives over silly arguments and accusations.
There's no doubt that Oscar fired the gun that killed his girlfriend but the question is, was it PREMEDITATED or was it just an 'accident' like he claims. O ya jump in, O ye CSI die- hards...I need all your theory(s) now. Hehehe...
Well, I didn't read all those Agatha Christie novels in high school for nothing. Perhaps I knew one day, my investigative chops would surely be needed. Lol. So here's my theory:
#1) He's been portrayed as a HOT head who is overtly sensitive. In other words, he's a rather tempestuous man...(considering the fact that he needs to yell at Reeva for chewing bubble gum in public...Hian! or talking to another man) ANGER is a rather volatile emotion coupled with a BAD TEMPER (as Reeva revealed in her text messages, that she was sometimes afraid of him) Well, people are known to do mean things when angry. Picture a BAD argument and he pops his gun. BANG!!!
#2) He's an insecure man... Oh yes! That he's such a good looking and very successful athlete doesn't take away the fact that his physical disability (being a double amputee) might sometimes make him feel inferior to other men and constantly compare himself to others in her eyes...thus reminding me of an article I authored last month (INSECURITY)...or else why would he think "he was more into her, than she was into him" even after she severally mentioned in a text that "he was the man she fell in love with" ... a message he never replied to and yet claimed he never got a chance to tell her how much he 'supposedly' loved her...(let's be honest if that girl even remotely flirted or chatted up another man, I can almost imagine him pulling the "Pity" card...actually I can picture an INSECURE man pulling a gun...its him or me...there's no him right here. So its me or you. I chose you baby.) BANG!!!
#3) He is careless with fire-arms...even though he's also charged with illegal possession of ammunition found in a safe at his home. An ex-girlfriend and a friend of his testified that he had allegedly fired his gun at the sun-roof of a car he alleged attacked and had fired a gun in a restaurant in january 2013. (Let's add a hot-head and an illegal fire crack together...) BANG!!!
#4) He rarely accepts responsibility for anything...Now in my eyes, that's pretty much someone with a CHARACTER dis-order (and believe, I know what I know these types). Constantly, blaming others for his issues, forgetting important details or just living in absolute denial. (You're all wrong, you don't see my point of view or care about me. Fuck you all) BANGGG!!!
My theory is SIMPLE. This wasn't an accident. They may have had an ugly lovers spat...(Perhaps they couldn't agree on where to spend valentines day or some other guy was gunning for her attention...or maybe she had plans to spend the day doing something he didn't support an in retort she fired an ugly statement) and in a fit of anger, went for his gun and shot her through the toilet door four times...The first two times a break and two more times. Let's assume he thought his victim was really an INTRUDER, he would have at least heard her cry since the first shot was on her shoulder, if he had no intention to kill her (or anyone else for that matter as he claims). If the decibels from the shot was so loud that it deafened and startled him. That was enough to stop him in his tracks. Whether he thought it was Reeva or an Intruder, it is rather safe to believe that he INTENDED to kill whoever was behind that door, even a simple burglar doesn't deserve to die that way. Pistorius shot his girlfriend four times till she was dead. To me, a pure case of passion influenced by jealousy, ego and anger and unfortunately she's not alive to tell the world what transpired that night.
Just like the prosecution, I don't think anybody with common sense is buying his story. Hopefully the Judge is sharp and acute enough to get justice for a beautiful life cut short.
But hey, that's just my own theory. What do you think? Do you really buy the story that it was an accident or a case of premeditated murder? Feel free to share your thoughts....
Have A Restful Saturday Lovelies! Kisses!
