Reeva Steenkamp’s Parents Disagree with Verdict
Pretoria – The parents of Reeva Steenkamp believe the conviction of culpable homicide that Oscar Pistorius received for shooting their daughter was not the right one, NBC reported on Friday.
“I just don’t feel that this is… right. They believe his story and I don’t believe that story. That’s the difference,” said Reeva’s mother June Steenkamp in an interview with NBC.
“I really don’t care what happens to Oscar. It’s not going to change anything because my daughter is never coming back. He’s still living and breathing you know, and she is gone forever.”
She said there were so many mistakes made and the athlete’s story “did not add up”.
NBC spoke to the Steenkamp parents after Judge Thokozile Masipa found Pistorius not guilty of murder but of culpable homicide.
