#OscarPistorius: Text messages between Oscar Pistorius and his slain girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp showed rage fueled by jealousy. The text messages were read in court during his high-profile trial for the shooting death of Steenkamp, who he claimed he mistook for an intruder.
One text sent on Jan. 27, 2013 read, “u are very quick to act cold and offish when you’re unhappy… every 5 seconds i hear how u dated another chick,” she wrote.
Perhaps the most damaging to Pistorius was the line Steenkamp wrote saying, “i am the girl who let go with u even when i was scared out of my mind to. i’m the girl who feel in love with u and wanted to tell u this weekend.
“I get snapped at and told my accents and my voice are annoying. i touch your neck to show u i care you tell me to stop. Stop chewing gum. do this don’t do that,” read part of one long text. Source: ABC News
The text messages come as a third witness testified to hearing screaming leading up to the moments when Reeva Steenkamp was murdered by Oscar Pistorius. Anette Stipp told the court that “The thing I remember the most, and I don’t think I will ever forget, is the screaming.”
Stipp’s testimony corroborates Michelle Burger and Charl Johnson’s testimonies. They also said they heard bangs, followed by screaming and another set of bangs with more screaming, the City Press reports.
