Oscar Pistorius is planning a memorial service in honor of his dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, it has emerged.
The memorial takes place today in his uncle’s home, where he has been staying after he was released on bail last week.
In a statement released by his rep, ‘Oscar specifically requested the memorial service as he continues to grieve and remains in deep mourning for the loss of his partner Reeva,’ adding that ‘since it is such a sensitive issue, Oscar has asked for a private service with people who share his loss, including his family members who knew and loved Reeva as one of their own.’
Oscar gunned down his 29-year old girlfriend in his home on Valentine’s Day, and is now facing murder charges. He maintains he did not mean to kill her, as he honestly thought the person he shot was an intruder.
Maybe this is a way of confirming that his story is true.
