South Africa was just turned upside down this morning.
Olympic superstar Oscar Pistorius, aka “The Blade Runner,” was arrested for the murder of his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, who was shot inside his South African home.
Police received a call and when they arrived on scene, they found paramedics trying to revive the woman, who had been shot an unspecified number of times.
Sadly, when Reeva tweeted yesterday:
…No one could have expected what was to come.
Reeva, a 29-year-old model, was born in Capetown, South Africa, and had appeared in FHM Magazine. She had just signed on to appear in the reality show Tropika Island of Treasure before her time of death.
Before modeling, Reeva had worked as a paralegal after studying law at the University of Port Elizabeth.
We send our thoughts and prayers to Reeva’s friends and family at this time.
