According to The Sun, a close friend to the former athlete told the local publication that Oscar wants Reeva’s family to forgive him for ending the life of their daughter as he further indicated that he was now a born again Christian.

 “What he really, really wants is forgiveness. I said to him that if he had killed my daughter I doubt I would forgive him. He is more concerned about forgiveness than actually getting out on parole. I fact, he has a real fear about getting parole as he knows there will be a backlash,” he said

However, despite everything that unfolded between the two former lovebirds, Oscar maintained that he mistook his significant other for an intruder as he went on to shoot her through the bathroom door.

 “I believed that someone had entered my house. I was too scared to switch a light on. I grabbed my 9mm pistol from underneath my bed. On my way to the bathroom, I screamed words to the effect for him/them to get out of my house and for Reeva to phone the police. It was pitch dark in the bedroom and I thought Reeva was in bed.”, he claimed.
