Court releases graphic pictures of Reeva Steenkamp’s body after Oscar Pistorius murder

A judge has granted Reeva's family request to release crime scene photos of their daughter badly wounded body after she was murdered by Oscar Pistorius

The horrific pictures were released by Judge Thokozile Masipa of the Pretoria High Court after Reeva's dad said during a sentencing hearing that “I want the world to see. I want the world to see the photos of the wounds inflicted on her,” Barry Steenkamp said in court. “To know my daughter’s pain. To know what her last few seconds were like, so that this is stopped — so that others do not have to go through this ever.”

She was shot in the head, elbow and hip through the bathroom door at Pistorius’s house in 2013. The bullets used were military-grade Black Talon bullets designed to expand on impact.

Oscar Pistorius, a double-amputee, is facing sentencing on a murder charge for the February 2013 death of Steenkamp, a South African model who was the Olympic sprinter’s girlfriend. Pistorius told police he mistook her for a possible intruder when he shot through a bathroom door on Valentine’s Day.
