Uncle: Oscar Pistorius 'will never be the same'

Oscar Pistorius' uncle did not deny reports that the paralympian sold off some of his investments, including his racehorses, to pay for the large legal expenses.

Arnold Pistorius added:

We are acutely aware of the fact that this is only the beginning of a long road to prove that, as we believe, Oscar never intended to harm Reeva Steenkamp. We also realise that the law must run its course, and we respect this process.

As a family, we remain confident that this will prove to have been a terrible and tragic accident, which has changed many lives forever.

Of course Oscar will never be the same, having to live with the knowledge that he caused the death of the woman he loved, but he is coping as best he can with the support of his loved ones.
