Pistorius Releases Statement on Eve of Girlfriend’s Death

Oscar Pistorius, the esteemed athlete accused in the Valentine's Day shooting of his model girlfriend, released a statement Thursday, saying that he will carry the "complete trauma" of the day for the rest of his life.

Friday marks the anniversary of the death of Reeva Steenkamp.

He posted:

  • 14 February 2014

    No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved - and continues to love Reeva.

    The pain and sadness – especially for Reeva’s parents, family and friends consumes me with sorrow.

    The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
