I was reading news from SA. I didn't know it was such a dangerous place to live, especially for women.

for those more familiar with south african culture. would there be any good reason to frame this guy? they are already jumping to premeditated murder. seems sudden so you wonder what evidence they have.

so he expects us to believe this is what happened? or this?

who shoots through a bathroom door without asking questions when you know someone is in bed with you and might get up to go in the middle of the night, sorry but who is that paranoid?? again, why shoot 4 times before you realize what you've done. another report said he shot her once and she ran to the bathroom and locked it and then he shot 3 more times through the door.

secondly, why would she lock the door when she went in the bathroom? unless she was fearful. maybe she thought he might walk in from getting his "fresh air" but really. was he up at 3 am really getting fresh air anyway?

is he trying to use his amputee status as a reason for feeling "vulnerable"??

why would he move her body? everybody knows you don't move a body? it could do more harm!

i heard this might be a roid rage case and there was evidence of "heavy" drinking. she was in her night wear, had an overnight bag and her ipad, how could he "forget" she was there and assume and intruder was in the house. so very sad! i hope for everyones sake he just tells the truth and doesn't draw this out with lies!!

It sounds less likely to be an accident if he knew she were already in the home. The first accounts made it seem as if she had entered the home without his knowledge. I haven't yet read all of the links TNB posted, but I'm thinking they had Sn argument that went too far. When the story originally broke, there were reports of neighbors telling police that they heard arguing.

here's his affidavit sharing his side of what happened that night.

It's really terrifying to me that this scenario could possibly happen after 4 months of dating. WTH???

Why am I curious to know if anyone overheard their phone conversation about whether to go w/ friends or "stay home for a quiet dinner together" in "our room," to confirm or deny that's how it went down?

eta - but he kept saying it was pitch dark in the room? But would it be so dark you couldn't see someone's silhouette in the bed if you had the balcony door open? And when he had woken up to go out on the balcony, wouldn't he have noticed whether or not she was in the bed next to him???

yea I have multiple questions about his story, that don't make sense but I can't say them right now. ....because i have to leave.
His story makes sense to me. As of today. I can change my opinion later.
3a/b, CG mostly.
Mexico City.


The fact (apparently, at least) that she was just sitting on the toilet makes me think that she had next to no inclination that she might be shot at from outside.

If the graphic has the trajectory of his shots right, it's interesting that he somehow knew to aim at where she was. On the other hand, maybe that's just the convenient way to generally shoot into the bathroom. I think it would take being there in person to get a sense of that.

He's standing aside from the door. Again maybe that was a natural position to be in knowing who it was in there, and intending to kill, but maybe it's the natural place to stand if you feel like there's a potential threat in there. I would think the latter, even though initially it just seems so unlikely to me that his story is honest.

3B ■ Medium/Course ■ High Porosity
They keep saying he was on his stumps until after the shooting so he would have been lower firing the shots so how did the hit her in the head and arm. Also how do we really know she was on the toilet? He moved her body which is a huge red flag. Did the police check to see if there was urine or poop in the toilet? Otherwise, that story is bs. It doesn't add up. When your in bed with someone and there's getting up and moving around you don't just not notice the other persons absence.

If for some reason he is telling the truth, which I don't believe for a minute (he's denying the steroids found in the home are his, he's lying) but anyway if he is telling the truth about the shooting he has absolutely terrible judgement and I think he should get some charge like accidental manslaughter. No way he should walk without anything because clearly he didn't act like most normal people would even in south africa.

A bit of forensic evidence should answer a lot of questions.

Agreed, his story makes zero sense. The truth his rarely that complicated.

The picture doesn't take into account that he didn't have on the prosthetic legs at the time.

I think the bat will be the end of him. The gun works well because he can always claim that he didn't know it was her. There's no way to explain the bat because in order to hit someone with a bat you have to had seen them either the first (gun/bat) or the second time (gun/bat). Plus, the bat would have definitely involved her screaming which also would have alerted him to the fact that there was no intruder. The gun could easily represent protection but a bloody bat represents up close and personal violence.
Is he saying he used the bat to knock the bathroom door in? And in the process, crushed her skull?

Or am I misunderstanding that?

Also, is he saying he was not wearing his prosthetic legs when he fired the shots at the "intruder" and then quickly put his legs on to go break the door down and check if it was an intruder or his gf?

That doesn't sound quite right. I would think if he suddenly realized he might have shot and killed his own gf, he wouldn't have even been thinking about putting his legs on.

I think it's more likely he knew the ish was about to hit the fan and was trying to get himself together.

I agree it makes little sense. I have so many questions.

The press are the only ones reporting the trauma to her skull or maybe I missed that during the court proceedings.

His story doesn't add up

So he says , he told the intruder to come out while asking his gf to call the police. Didn't she answer ?

As of now I kinda believe his story bt I'm still wary ....

If his story is true, then he must be suffering from a lot of paranoia.

The trajectory of his bullets should show whether he had the prosthetics or not.
Or maybe I've watched too many crime shows.
