Undeniable fact: If the 9 mm had not been there, she would not be dead. [View all]

Last edited Wed Feb 20, 2013, 10:40 AM - Edit history (1)

The model in the athlete's house would likely still be alive had that gun not been there.

The trajectory was up, or it was down. The lights were on, or they were off. There were screams, or there were not. He had his legs on, or he did not. He killed her intentionally or he did not.

All of that is beside the point.

She is dead.

The only gun in the house was caused to fire the shot that that killed her.

It is a FACT: Had the gun not been there, she would absolutely not be dead by gunshot, and almost certainly would not be dead by some other means.





The rest of this sad case is debatable and will ultimately be found to have happened one way or another by a South African court.



I must confess. I am really at a loss to understand the shitty-toned replies to my OP. I am not defending the man. Personally, I think he's guilty as hell. The point of my OP was that when guns are present, the likelihood of mayhem increases. We can debate whether or not he would have killed her with a bat or a knife or the candlestick in the library. But the fact is he killed her with a gun and if it wasn't there, he would not have killed her with a gun. If he didn't shoot her, the possibility that she would still be alive seems, logically to me, far greater than otherwise. Beyond the fact that she would not be dead by gunshot, it is entirely possible she would not be dead, period. Which is what the OP said.
