Convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius.
Convicted killer Oscar Pistorius told a prison social worker that he and his murdered girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, had been subjected to threats and social media harassment during their four-month relationship – but had “stuck together” regardless.
“He also expressed his feelings about the loss of his girlfriend [at] his hands… Reeva, whom he was dating for a period of four months and was in a honeymoon phase as they were learning about each other’s personalities. Such was short-lived as the unthinkable happened a night before they were due to celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together,” prison social worker Clarah Erenst stated.
Erenst’s report was filed by the Department of Correctional Services in response to Pistorius’ ultimately successful parole litigation.
