Oscar Pistorius murder trial: the curious case of Kevin Lerena’s toe.
OSCAR Pistorius murder trial: the curious case of Kevin Lerena’s toe. Every moment of the runner’s life is being reviewed in light of the fatal shooting of his lover Reeva Steenkamp. The tabloids are looking for his darker side, scouring the star athlete’s life for flashes of temper and emotion. Today the Sun settles upon his “pal” Kevin Lerena:
The Paralympic idol — accused of the gun murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp — blasted boxer Kevin Lerena’s toe in a crowded trendy restaurant.
He shot his toe? That’s odd because yesterday we quoted what Lerena had told South Africa’s Beeld newspaper:
“Oscar just wanted to look at the gun, and it sort of snagged on his pants, releasing the safety catch. A shot went off. I got a huge fright, because the bullet hit the ground just centimetres from my foot.”
Did Lerena recover?
“We ended up carrying on with our meal.”
More character assassinations and distorted facts later. Meanwhile, a woman is dead. How did Reeva Steenkamp die? Oscar Pistirus arrived in the Pretoria court at 7am GMT today.
