Oscar Pistorius's Shocking Fall from Grace in 6 Clicks

After an inspiring ascension to stardom, the Olympic athlete is sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend


Just prior to Valentine's Day 2013, Steenkamp takes to Twitter to share her excitement over the holiday, proclaiming it a "day of love." Hours later, her life tragically ends when she enters Pistorius's Pretoria, South Africa, home in the early morning hours and is reportedly shot four times by the athlete. "She was the kindest, sweetest human being; an angel on earth and will be sorely missed," her publicist Sarit Tomlinson says.
