The cover girl of FHM magazine was dating a Paralympic and Olympic athlete, Oscar Pistorius and he was the one who shot her dead. Pistorius acknowledges the fact that he shot her, but he claims that he mistook her as an intruder. The police took him into custody on 15th February and charged him with Steenkamp's murder in Pretoria court.
During the trail both the defense and prosecution claimed that he had fired four bullets through a toilet door. Three bullets hit Steenskamp who was inside the toilet at that time. Although, Pistorius claims that he thought Steenskamp was sleeping in the bed at that time and there was an intruder in the washroom.
During an interview with The Times Magazine, Steenkamp's mother said that “Reeva wouldn’t want to sleep with Oscar if she wasn’t sure.” In addition to this she said that Reeva had already decided to end the relationship the night she died because she believed that it wasn’t making either of them content. She also wrote a book titled 'Reeva: A Mother’s Story,' in which she articulates Pistorius as a ‘pathetic figure’.
After 20 months of waiting, the justice has finally been done. Early this week, the murderer of Steenkamp, Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to five years in prison.
