Paralympic gold medalist
The Paralympic gold medalist, who is serving a 13-year, five-month sentence in a South African prison for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp, told a friend he was desperate to accept her apology, The Sun reported. .
“I want to tell you I’m sorry,” said the killer athlete, according to his friend and former teacher Bill Schroder.

Oscar Pistorius Age
Pistorius, 33, grew a beard while in prison and regained his faith, said Schroder, who visited his friend four times in prison.
He also stopped exercising and started smoking, as did his friend.
The double amputee Olympian shot Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model and aspiring reality TV star, through a bathroom door at her home in Pretoria, South Africa, on Valentine’s Day 2013 that day. .
Prosecutors charged Pistorius with deliberately blowing up his girlfriend four times after the couple got into a fight.
But Pistorius claimed he woke up and opened fire because he thought Steenkamp was an intruder, a defense that Schroder says he has stuck with to this day.
“He still claims to this day that it was an accident,” Schroder told The Sun. “I felt like he was showing remorse.”
“He cited a study by an expert who found that when you wake up from deep sleep and go into an anxiety situation, when you are fully conscious, you behave very differently. I heard it but didn’t buy it.
Pistorius was originally convicted of murder in 2014, but that conviction has been overturned and replaced by a murder conviction.
In 2018, Steenkamp’s mother June said that she had forgiven Pistorius but still wanted to punish him.
