Oscar Pistorius May Have Murdered His Girlfriend

Developing story out of South Africa, Oscar Pistorius, the Para-Olympic Athlete may have murdered his girlfriend at their home in a gated community.

Either she surprised him for valentines day and he thought she was an intruder or there may be more to this. Pistorius posted on twitter in November 'Nothing like getting home to hear the washing machine on and thinking its an intruder to go into full combat recon mode into the pantry!' so maybe the guy was paranoid about intruders but the charge here, at least at this time is murder, not manslaughter. (I'm assuming they have an equivalent charge in South Africa)

For what it's worth she tweeted the day before the shooting that she was excited for Valentine's day to see what surprises were coming. Tragic circumstances.
