THIS IS NOT THE WAY WE'RE USED TO SEEING OSCAR PISTORIUS GET AROUND.
BUT THAT'S THE DOUBLE AMPUTEE OLYMPIC SPRINTER KNOWN AS THE BLADE RUNNER IN A GRAY SWEAT SUIT SEEN WALKING AROUND A POLICE STATION JUST HOURS AFTER BEING CHARGED WITH MURDER.
THE VICTIM IS HIS GIRLFRIEND MODEL REEVA STEENKAMP, SHOT FOUR TIMES IN HIS HOME
SOUNDBITE Mike Steenkamp, Reeva Steenkamp's uncle:
"All we know is that, what happened this morning as you all know in the news media all over the world, and...basically, with Reeva I must just say that her future has been cut short, all her dreams have been, and what she's accomplished in the past. And the family at the moment, Barry and June, are devastated."
AND POLICE SAY THERE HAS BEEN A RECENT HISTORY OF PROBLEMS INVOLVING HIM INCLUDING WHAT THEY CALL ALLEGATIONS OF A DOMESTIC NATURE.
SOT Brigadier Denise Beukes / Police Spokeswoman
I can confirm there previously been incidents at the home of Oscar Pistorius.
PISTORIUS ROSE TO FAME AT THESE PAST OLYMPICS WHERE, DESPITE HIS AMPUTATIONS, HE WAS ABLE TO COMPETE IN THE 400 METER SEMIFINALS AND THE FINALS OF THE FOUR BY 400 RELAYS.
OFFICIALS SAY HIS COURT HEARING WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON BUT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FRIDAY TO GIVE FORENSIC INVESTIGATORS TIME TO CARRY OUT THEIR WORK.
