If you’re just waking up, the big news of the world this morning is a Valentine’s Day nightmare: Double amputee Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius — aka the “Blade Runner” — shot and killed his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, this morning in South Africa after she, according to some reports, tried to surprise him for Valentine’s Day and he mistook her for an intruder.

Reports CNN:

Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius has been charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend at his South Africa home early Thursday.

Reeva Steenkamp, 29, and Pistorius, 26, were the only two people in the upscale Pretoria home at the time of the shooting, police spokeswoman Denise Beukes said.

There did not appear to be signs of forced entry at the home, Beukes said.She also said there had been “previous incidents” at the home — “allegations of a domestic nature.”

Several South African media outlets reported that the woman was mistaken for an intruder. Beukes said she was aware of those reports, but they did not come from the police force.

A tweet posted yesterday by Steenkamp is absolutely chilling looking back on it…

As is her final Instagram post

According to tributes that are already pouring in, Steenkamp was more than a beautiful woman: she was a law school graduate who did lots of charity work and had a promising acting career ahead of her. May she rest in peace.
