Fresh from our “creepy Valentine” file, Euronews.com is reporting that alleged murderer, paraolympian Oscar Pistorius has chosen Valentine’s Day to speak out about his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, whom he shot dead last year on Valentine’s Day. Pistorius who goes on trial for premeditated murder on March 3rd, maintains his innocence, insisting that he accidentally shot the model through a bathroom door after mistaking her for an intruder.

The author reports:

“No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved — and continues to love Reeva,” Pistorius wrote on his personal website .

“The pain and sadness – especially for Reeva’s parents, family and friends consumes me with sorrow. “The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life,” he said in the message signed simply “Oscar”.

He also posted a link to the message on Twitter, describing it as “A few words from my heart”. It is the first time he has used his official account on Twitter since February 12, 2013, two days before the shooting.

Known as the ‘Blade Runner’, Pistorius catapulted to fame at the 2012 London Olympics as the first double-amputee to compete against able-bodied athletes. His trial is set to start on March 3.
