11 Years After Killing His Girlfriend Reeve Steenkamp, Oscar Pistorius Released

Oscar Pistorius, the not-so-speedy sprinter, has finally escaped the thrilling confines of prison life! On this fine January 5, 2024, the South African Department of Correctional Services officially declared him a free bird, ready to spread his wings on parole.

In a statement that probably wasn’t accompanied by jazz hands, the department cheerfully informed NBC News that Oscar has entered the exciting world of Community Corrections and is now chilling at home. Yes, you heard it right—home, sweet home, where bathroom doors are no longer his mortal enemies.

Flashback to 2013, when our dear Blade Runner mistook his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp for an intruder and decided to play a real-life game of Clue with a loaded gun. Fast forward to 2017, and Oscar found himself with a sentence as long as one of his Paralympic sprints—13 years and five months for the murder of Reeva.

But fear not, for justice has been served on a silver platter (unlike poor Reeva). Now, almost 11 years later, Reeva’s mom, June Steenkamp, released a statement that can only be described as a masterpiece of understatement. She shared, “The pain is still raw and real, and my late husband Barry and I have never been able to come to terms with Reeva’s death or the way she died.”

In a shocking twist, June dropped the truth bomb that no amount of time served can bring back a loved one. Profound, right? Meanwhile, Oscar, the Paralympic champ turned bathroom marksman, is now enjoying the perks of freedom once again.

Let’s not forget his glory days when he wowed the world as the “Blade Runner” in the 2012 London Olympics. Four-time bathroom door assailant and double-leg amputee extraordinaire, Oscar competed in the 4×400 meter relay and the 400-meter semifinal. Ah, memories! We can only hope his return to society is as eventful as his Olympic career, minus the gunplay, of course.
