Oscar Pistorius To Hold Private Memorial For Girlfriend He Allegedly Murdered
TMZ is reporting that Oscar Pistorius is planning a private memorial for girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he’s accused of murdering.
The memorial for the 29-year-old deceased model will be held tonight at the home of Oscar’s uncle, whom he’s been living with since being freed on bail.
Oscar’s rep released a statement, saying, “Oscar specifically requested the memorial service as he continues to grieve and remains in deep mourning for the loss of his partner Reeva.”
The rep adds, “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.”
Pistorius of course claims he shot Steenkamp because he thought she was an intruder.
