Oscar Pistorius: Reeva Steenkamp’s family desperate for answers

The family of model Reeva Steenkamp have said they are desperate for answers about why she died, as they prepare for her funeral.

Miss Steenkamp, 29, was declared dead early on Thursday morning at the home of Mr Pistorius near Pretoria. She was shot four times and her skull was reportedly fractured. Mr Pistorius, 26, is facing a charge of premeditated murder.

June Steenkamp, her mother, said she had lost “the most beautiful person who ever lived” to a “horrendous death”.

“She had so much of herself to give and now all of it is gone. In the blink of an eye and a single breath, the most beautiful person who ever lived is no longer here,” she told South Africa’s Times newspaper.

“All we have is this horrendous death to deal with, to get to grips with.

“All we want are answers as to why this had to happen, why our beautiful daughter had to die like this.”

Miss Steenkamp’s uncle Michael said the family were trying to focus on the funeral and not Mr Pistorius’ court appearance, also today. Whatever the result, he added, nothing would “bring back our Reeva”.

Asked yesterday what they believed was the motive behind Miss Steenkamp’s death, Michael Steenkamp said: “The only person who can answer that is Reeva.”

But her brother Adam responded “Oscar” instead, adding that the sportsman should “tell the truth”.

Carl Pistorius, the athlete’s brother, on Sunday night said he was praying for both families.

“Praying unceasingly 4 Reeva’s family like my brother asked, praying 4 my brother Oscar Pistorius,” he wrote on Twitter.
