Oscar Pistorius Released From Jail

Olympic and Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius is to be released on correctional supervision, or house arrest, on Tuesday 20 October.

Pistorius was jailed following the hearing of a case against him for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Once a poster boy for disabled sport, Oscar has been stripped of lucrative endorsement deals by global brands and has withdrawn from all competition.

His girlfriend Steenkamp, voted one of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World by FHM magazine in 2011 and 2012, also had a high profile before her untimely death.

“Reeva was a star on the rise whose light was taken away from her too soon,” said one of the last people to see her alive, her former publicist Simphiwe Majola.

The glamorous law graduate “was incredibly intelligent, a smart girl,” she said.

Steenkamp’s last appearances was on the South African celebrity reality show “Tropika Island of Treasure”, which controversially aired a few days after she was killed.

In the show she spoke about the need to leave a positive mark on life. “Not just your journey in life but the way that you go out and make your exit is so important,” she said.
