    South African media are reporting that Paralympian Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend this morning after mistaking her for a burglar :eek:

    She was surprising him for Valentine's Day apparently.

    http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Oscar-skiet-vriendin-20130214

    Translated version -
    Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius about 04:00 Thursday his girlfriend of the past year at his home in Silver Lakes, Pretoria killed.

    He apparently thought she was a burglar.

    Captain. Sarah Mcira of the police confirmed that Pistorius's girlfriend was shot in the arm and the head.

    She died at the scene.

    Read more later.

    No more jokes please. They aren't funny.

    To the posters bitching and moaning about the jokes. Not one post was reported.

    That is the only funny thing about this thread.

    Oh dear... That's a bit unfortunate.

    I suppose the thread title could have been a touch more sympathetic btw.

    I thought he had trials for Arsenal or something.
    Now that would be mad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,050 ✭✭✭token101


    That story sounds a bit dodgy to be honest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,260 ✭✭✭Irish_Elect_Eng


    The press in the region are picking up the story though

    Shooting someone in the head would be hard enough to do if you meant it.

    Hmmmm
    South Africa's IOL reported that the Paralympic and Olympic star - recently voted one of the top 10 Sexiest Men Alive by People magazine in the USA - was enraged upon returning home from London 2012 to discover that his girlfriend had allegedly cheated on him.

    News reports suggest that it was a valentines day surprise from the girlfriend that went wrong.

    She had snook into his house to surprise him and he misstook her for a thief and shot her in the head and arm with a 9mm gun.

    She died at the scene.


    Im sure the truth wil come out in the end..as theres lots of rummors flying around at the moment on all News stations and websites.

    Have you ever retired a human by mistake?
    I thought this was going to be a thread about the blade runner sequel.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 35,514 ✭✭✭✭efb


    Legal Eagles reckon he should plead guilty as he doesn't have a leg to stand on...

    Shooting her once is misfortune, twice is carelessness.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,181 ✭✭✭Davidth88


    He won't have a leg to stand on in court !!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,199 ✭✭✭✭Cienciano


    Surely if there's a burglar in your house and you're about to kill them, you at least warn them :confused:
    Supposed the story is possible, but until we hear full details, I'm putting it down as "dodgy".

    I don't believe a word of it. A "4am valentines surprise" on valentines Morn? Did she not have a key? Was she in fact not living there( I don't know but probably). Couldn't she have said "hello it's me" had she set off the alarm were she insane enough to surprise him at 4AM?

    A girl that good looking could surprise me anytime she wanted.

    Blade Gunner would be an awful sh!t name for a sequel in fairness.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,420 ✭✭✭Lollipops23


    Jesus lads, even by AH standards the tone of this thread is awful.

    If the "mistaken for intruder" story is legit (no reason to assume otherwise) then that's incredibly sad.

    That story is ludicrous. Probably a domestic.




  • Violent crime in South Africa is very high with armed guards posted at many apartment complexes and housing estates. Lots of walled in, gated communities like that.

    Lots of people over there would shoot first if someone was coming in at 4am.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8668615.stm
    Each day an average of nearly 50 people are murdered.

    In addition to these 18,000 murders each year, there are another 18,000 attempted murders.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,380 ✭✭✭✭kneemos


    According to Newstalk under South African law he'll be charged with murder anyway and then plead his case from there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 471 ✭✭OrgasmicBaz


    He must of been legless...


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,370 ✭✭✭Brendan Flowers

    Exactly. Its like a title someone would post just to get a few cheap 'thanks'

    Will wait until there is further news before commenting on the story, but RIP to the poor woman
