from daily mail trying to picture of what might have happened

 

19 Feb as it was happening

from twitter what i could get

 

I am an adult male, SA citizen and applicant in this app and seek to be released on bail.

I make this affadavit of my own free will and have not been influenced. Contents is true and correct. I had no intention to kill my girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.   fail to understand how I could be charged with murder, let alone premed murder because I had no intention to kill. 

I have been informed I have been acused of murder – I deny the accusation.

nothing can be further from the truth that I planned the murder of my girlfriend.

talking about assets – Silverwoods property values at R5-million. Other properties valued at about R2-million.

on 13 Feb Reeva would have gone out with her friends, me with mine. She wanted to stay at home.

I was watching TV. My legs were off. She was doing yoga. At the end of the evening we got into bed.

waiting for Oscar to stop crying…

I’m accutely aware of people gaining entries to homes to commit crime, I’ve received death threats.

I sleep with my 9mm under my bed. I woke up to close the sliding door and heard a noise in the bathroom.

I was scared and didnt switch on the light. I got my gun and moved towards the bathroom. I screamed at the intruder

because I did not have my legs on I felt vulnerable. I fired shots through the bathroom door and told Reeva to call police.

I walked back to the bed and realised Reeva was not in bed. Its then it dawned on me it could be her in there.

I kicked the door open. Called paramedics and complex security. I tried to carry her down stairs for help.

I tried to help her but she died in my arms.

with the benefit of hindsight I realise that Reeva went to the bathroom when I went to close the balcony door.

I am an international sports star, I will not evade my trial

after the shooting I did not flee the scene. I remains until the police arrived.

I dont know of any witnesses in this matter, and I wont interfere with any witnesses

Roux concludes the affidavit. Oscar confirms the contents of it.

From news24

In an affidavit, Oscar Pistorius made the following statement which was read out in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday by his lawyer.

(This transcript is unverified and will be updated with the official version as soon as the court makes it available)

I am an adult male, SA citizen and applicant in this application and seek to be released on bail.

I make this affadavit of my own free will and have not been influenced. Contents is true and correct.

I fail to understand how I could be charged with murder, let alone premeditated murder because I had no intention to kill my girlfriend.

I have been informed I have been acused of murder – I deny the accusation.

Nothing can be further from the truth that I planned the murder of my girlfriend.

I have no intention to relocate as I love my country.

I earn R5.6m a year. I’ve never been convicted of crimes.

I deny that I committed murder in the strongest point. Even though I don’t have to, I want to deal with these allegations.

Reeva had bought me a present for Valentine’s Day. We were deeply in love.

We were deeply in love and couldn’t be happier. I loved her and I know she felt the same way.

On 13 Feb Reeva would have gone out with her friends, me with mine. She wanted to stay at home.

By about 22h00 we were in my bedroom. I was watching TV. My legs were off. She was doing yoga. At the end of the evening we got into bed.

I’m accutely aware of people gaining entries to homes to commit crime, I’ve received death threats.

I sleep with my 9mm under my bed. I woke up to close the sliding door and heard a noise in the bathroom.

I was scared and didn’t switch on the light. I got my gun and moved towards the bathroom. I screamed at the intruder because I did not have my legs on I felt vulnerable. I fired shots through the bathroom door and told Reeva to call police.

I walked back to the bed and realised Reeva was not in bed. Its then it dawned on me it could be her in there.

I rushed back into the bedroom and opened the sliding door onto the balcony and screamed for help.

I put on my prosthetic legs, ran back to the bathroom and tried to kick open the toilet door.

I think I must have then turned on the lights.

I went back into my bedroom and grabbed my cricket bat to bash open the toilet door.

I called paramedics and complex security. I tried to carry her down stairs for help.

I tried to help her but she died in my arms. I am mortified.

With the benefit of hindsight I realise that Reeva went to the bathroom when I went to close the balcony door.

I trust the South African legal system and the facts will show that I did not murder Reeva.

I believe the forensic evidence will prove what I am saying. I used a cricket bat to break open toilet door.

I am an international sports star, I will not evade my trial.

After the shooting I did not flee the scene. I remained until the police arrived.

I dont know of any witnesses in this matter, and I won’t interfere with any witnesses.

My continued incarceration will be of “no benefit” to the state. Release would not disturb the public order.
