The distraught couple was interviewed for a new documentary, Pistorius on Trial: Nowhere to Run, premiering Sunday on Investigation Discovery (ID).
“I think he [Oscar] has to see me, the mother, the person who gave birth to her, that he’s taken that away. That’s what I want to see, that’s why I want to look in his face and he must look in mine,” June Steenkamp says.. “He must see now that I am there for justice for Reeva, no matter what happened, and the truth, obviously, which we don’t know we’ll ever get. But I hope for that.”
As Radar has been reporting, Pistorius, known as the Blade Runner for the specially-designed prosthetic legs that allowed him to compete as an Olympic runner despite being a double amputee, is accused of murdering his reality star girlfriend on Valentines’s Day, 2013. Pistorius has never denied shooting her but insists he mistakenly thought she was an intruder.
Barry Steenkamp, Reeva’s father, added, “I’ve got my own feelings inside as to what happened, but what I do want to do, is to just to talk to him. I would like to have a chat to him, man to man. Guilty or not guilty, whatever it is. I would like to have a talk; that would help me a lot.”
Pistorius On Trial: Nowhere To Run premieres April 13 at 9/8c on ID.
