Johannesburg: The mother of Oscar Pistorius’ murdered girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp is struggling to understand the reasons for her daughter’s death.

Demanding answers to know why Pistorius murdered her daughter, June Steenkamp said that her daughter was a beautiful person, who disappeared in the blink of an eye.

Steenkamp said that her family would now have to face the ordeal of dealing with the cold-blooded murder of her daughter, who, she added, was proud of being a South African.

Steenkamp’s father Barry agreed with his wife and said that although he bore no animosity towards Pistorius, he too is struggling to understand as to why the Paralympic sprinter killed his daughter.
