Oscar Pistorius‘ murder trial is on a brief hiatus as the prosecution reassesses their argument before the conclusion, expected to happen soon. But Pistorius is still busy today: his lawyer announced that the athlete is selling his home to pay off legal fees.
His home in South Africa is the same house in which he fatally shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius has never returned to the building, which was briefly held by the police last year as they gathered evidence from the crime scene. In a statement, lawyer Brian Webber said Pistorius “cannot contemplate ever returning to live there again.”
It’s not just to offload the terrible location of Steenkamp’s death. Pistorius will also need the funds to pay off that lawyer. His murder trial has captivated the world, and the verdict is expected very soon. Did Pistorius want to murder his girlfriend? We shall see.
Do you think anyone will ever want to live in the house where Pistorius shot Steenkamp? What do you think the verdict will be? Do you think he is innocent? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
