    I am surprised his defense is not that she was a Nexus-6 model.

    Nike 'bullet' ad pulled from accused sprinter's website


    A Nike advert featuring double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius describing himself as like a "bullet" has been pulled from the South African's website today, hours after he was charged with shooting dead his girlfriend. The ad, reportedly part of a 2011 campaign, shows a time lapse image of Pistorius springing from the starting blocks with the tagline, "I am the bullet in the chamber".

    Nike declined to comment on the ad.

    "Nike extends its deepest sympathy and condolences to all families concerned following this tragic incident," it said in a statement.

    "As it is a police matter, Nike will not comment further at this time."

    Billboard ads featuring the 26-year-old Paralympic gold medallist were also being removed in Johannesburg today.

    South African TV station M-Net had been using an image of Pistorius in a suit with the slogan "Every night is 'Oscar' night this February" to promote its upcoming coverage of the Oscars.

    "Out of respect and sympathy to the bereaved, M-Net will be pulling its entire Oscar campaign featuring Oscar Pistorius with immediate effect," the TV station said on Twitter.

    Pistorius, who became the first double-amputee to ever compete in the Olympics last summer in London, is accused of shooting 29-year-old model Reeva Steenkamp four times yesterday inside his home in Pretoria

    South Africa's Olympic double amputee Oscar Pistorius shot his girlfriend dead after mistaking her for a burglar, according to reports.

    Pistorius, known as "The Blade Runner", allegedly killed his girlfriend at 4am (1pm AEDT) on Thursday morning local time at his home in Pretoria, the Die Beeld website reports.

    Police captain Sarah Mcira confirmed that a woman was shot four times in the arm and the head.

    She was declared dead at the scene.

    Die Beeld has named the victim as his girlfriend of a year, Reeva Steenkamp.

    Steenkamp is a model who has posed for FHM and described herself on her Twitter page as a "SA Model, Cover Girl, Tropika Island of Treasure Celeb Contestant, Law Graduate, Child of God."
    South African journalist Kalay Maistry told Sky News that it is believed his girlfriend was trying to surprise him for Valentine's Day.

    "I think what this actually highlights is the level of fear ordinary South Africans have," she said.

    "This is a man who has gone to bed, it's an innocent surprise from a girlfriend … and the moment he thinks someone is trying to break in he grabs his gun."

    Yesterday Steenkamp tweeted a now-eerie Valentine's Day message.

    "What do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow??? #getexcited #ValentinesDay," she wrote.

    Pistorius was arrested at the house and is expected to appear at Pretoria Magistrate's Court later today.

    A case of murder is now being investigated.

    His agent Peet van Zyl said he was on the way to Pretoria to speak with him.

    "Oscar is a humble person and a lovely guy — I'm sure what's happened has been a terrible mistake but I really don't have the details at the moment," he said.

    He is reportedly in shock.

    A 9mm pistol was taken from the scene.

    Pistorius became the first athlete to compete at both the Olympics and Paralympics in London last year.

    He was due to compete in able-bodied events in Sydney and Perth early next month.

    Sorry, I meant I wondered if he murdered her. :)
    .... in cases like this, I find myself almost hoping that the suspect DID commit the crime (the victim being the victim either way), because the idea of someone being wrongfully accused of murder is too horrifying.
    Doesn't sound like it was an accident though, if the neighbors are correct about screaming going on before the shooting. Wtf Pistorius??

    His story is so implausible ... I'm shocked that his lawyers let him release that.

    i guess by disclosing that, he might be facing the max of whatever is equivalent to manslaughter here in the us, as opposed to first or second degree murder. it might be a smart move by the defense attorneys, because at this point i think their main goal is to avoid the maximum sentence, and if south africa has the death penalty, they are gonna want to try to avoid that....

    It looks like the South African version of the OJ Simpson prosecution team has been assembled. On day 1 the lead detective agreed with the defense that they didn’t have real evidence. And on day 2 one of his key witnesses that heard screaming leading up to the shooting was actually four blocks away.

    Yeah, but if even one shred of physical evidence contradicts his story in any way, he's hooped. He is just stuck with this shitty story now, no matter what the evidence turns up. Seems like a strange legal decision to me at this stage of the game.
