Normally, it takes a few months after the trial is over before the documentaries start to come out on a case like this, but the BBC isn’t wasting any time.
Their documentary “Oscar Pistorius: What Really Happened?” will air on Monday and try to piece together what happened on the night Pistorius shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp dead in the bathroom.
One of Pistorius’ friends describes his state of mind right now, courtesy of the Sports Grid.
The interviewee who offered this bit of speculation is one of Pistorius’s closest friends, Mike Azzie. Said Azzie, “He has no confidence in his tone of voice and he is just a man that is almost like someone that is walking around in circles and doesn’t know where he is going. … I would say that, just speaking to him, that he is a broken man and that I would go as far to say that he would be on the verge of suicide. It really worries me.”
Are those the thoughts of a guilty man or a man worried, he is going to go to jail for a long time, because of an accident? That is up for you to decide, but considering that Pistorius is out on bail, his family and friends should keep an eye on him.
We may never know exactly what happened in that bedroom, but if Pistorius commits suicide, we will never have any chance of finding out.
