Reeva Steenkamp's murder case resumes on Monday

Reeva Steenkamp’s murder case keeps becoming more mysterious as it moves ahead. The trial for boyfriend Oscar Pistorius resumed on Monday where accounts from the first neighbors who were the first ones to arrive were given. As stated by them, they arrived at the crime scene after the athlete had killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. There had been a recess for two weeks after which the defense called for Johan Stander who is also a neighbor and lives in the same gated community as the double-amputee Olympian. According to what Standar has stated, he arrived at the scene with his daughter after Reeva had been shot fatally.

Though all suspicions point towards Reeva Steenkamp’s boyfriend, he states that the shooting was merely an accident and it all happened when he mistook Steenkamp for a burglar and shot her. Standar’s statements go in line with what Pistorius has stated as he says that Pistorius phoned him early on Feb. 14, 2013 and begged him to come over as he nervously yelled into the phone “Please, please, please come to my house, I shot Reeva, I thought she was an intruder. Please, please, please come quick!” And when Standar arrived with his daughter, he saw Pistorius carrying Reeva down the stairs in his arms. “He was broken,” Stander testified. “He was screaming, he was crying.”

Stander’s statements might be true and in line with what Oscar states but they also might be just cooked up. Things got more confusing as Standar was asked to testify about crime in the community where he and Pistorius lived and after a session of cross examination it was revealed that he had not burglar-proofed his home. Standar’s daughter Carice Viljoen claims seeing a security guard as soon as they arrived and she also saw blood everywhere. “He was praying to God the whole time,” she told the court. “He kept on begging Reeva to just stay with him and not to leave him.” After Stander and Viljoen's testimony the trial - now in its seventh week - adjourned for the day.
