The father of Reeva Steenkamp, the model who was shot dead at the home of Oscar Pistorius, said "there is no hatred in our hearts" over her killing.
Barry Steenkamp told the Mail on Sunday: “He must be going through things that we don't know about.
"We ask the Lord every day to help us find a reason why this should happen to Reeva.
"She was the most beautiful, kind girl in the world."
Steenkamp added: “There is no hatred in our hearts."
Pistorius will concentrate on defending himself against allegations that he murdered his model girlfriend on Valentine's morning.
The South African press say the weapon is a key piece of police evidence, but Pistorius' family said the death is a 'tragic accident.'
The family and management of Oscar Pistorius have released a statement disputing the murder charge against him 'in the strongest terms'.
