Oscar Pistorius to Reeva’s friend: ‘How do you sleep at night?’

2014-05-06 12:54

Oscar Pistorius has allegedly whispered “How do you sleep at night?” to a close friend of Reeva Steenkamp’s in court.

This comment was made as Pistorius today passed Steenkamp’s friend, Kim Myers, shortly after an adjournment in court proceedings.

Although the comment was made under Pistorius’ breath and was too soft for reporters to hear, Myers confirmed that this is what she’d heard.

Desi Myers, Kim’s mother, today broke weeks of media silence, to say she was “furious” about the comment.

Kim looked visibly upset and shocked after Pistorius passed her and was immediately approached by members of the police investigating team.

A source close to the prosecution told City Press that he hoped Myers had been advised to open a charge of intimidation against Pistorius over the incident.

Pistorius’ attorney, Brian Webber, told Beeld newspaper that they were not aware of the comment.
