Adam Steenkamp is calling on paralympian Oscar Pistorius to “tell the truth” about the murder of his sister, Reeva Steenkamp. He said his half-sister “was completely unpretentious. Her work had become lively and exciting, and she was travelling all the time.” I fully expect the family of Reeva Steenkamp to start questioning Oscar Pistorius’ version of events. She will be buried Tuesday in a private funeral service.
There is speculation that Reeva Steenkamp’s relationship with South African national team rugby player Francois Hougaard could have played a part in the tragedy. The South African Times cited sources close to the police investigation as saying that social media messages including ones from Francois Hougaard may become part of the prosecution’s evidence at Oscar Pistorius’ bail hearing Tuesday. Francois Hougaard communicated with Steenkamp on Twitter shortly before her death and retweeted a picture of them together after she died.
