Johannesburg – Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend in the early hours of Thursday morning, apparently after thinking she was an intruder.

The police’s Captain Sarah Mcira confirmed the woman had been shot in the head and arm.

She died at the scene.

Pistorius is apparently in police custody.

Unconfirmed reports from residents living in the area say the woman was shot four times but we will wait for official confirmation.

It is really a sad day in the history of a man that became a role model for so many people.

    It would seem we have to start choosing our role models a tad better – the current ones all have feet of clay in a major way – and do pardon the pun, even though his are of carbon fibre…

        That was just my own personal, slightly “off” sense of humour making itself known 😉

    Before I comment on this sad story I’d rather wait to hear what really happened.
    No-one or no news paper has mentioned at what time of the morning the event took place. Was it dark, was it dusky or light? I still find it hard to believe.
