What the people in Oscar’s life revealed about his character
Just a while before that tragic evening when Oscar’s life changed forever, he spoke to Mr. Bill Schroder, former head teacher at Pretoria Boys High School which Pistorius attended. Schroder wonders how the pressure Oscar was under all the time, affected his mind and reported that Oscar said on occasion it would be so nice just to be ordinary.
Pistorius experienced huge trauma at age 15, when his mother died. Oscar, his older brother, Carl, and younger sister, Aimee, were much closer to their mom than their dad, according to Schroder. To lose their mother in an already broken home, must have been hell to cope with. It was a critical episode of his childhood and Pistorius battled to come to terms.
Did he ever process it or is he still carrying emotional scars and the fear of losing the woman in his life? Would Oscar have been a different man if he had had a closer bond with his father to set the example? Or is it a case of like father like son, as far as relationships with women are concerned, except that Oscar would rather shoot than separate?
Schroder is of the opinion that the spotlight may have been too bright for Oscar. Fame brings power and power corrupts. Did Oscar Pistorius want ultimate power?
The materialistic Oscar
Pistorius loves material possessions, such as expensive cars, luxurious homes, race horses, exotic animals and trendy clothes. Was a girlfriend or more specifically, Reeva Steenkamp, seen as one of his possessions?
Uncle Arnold Pistorius reportedly said that Reeva and Oscar had plans together. Did Reeva know about those plans? Arnold also implied that Oscar was happier in his private life than he had been for a long time. So, before Reeva, was he unhappy for a long time?
Dr. Versveld, his orthopedic surgeon said he warned Oscar to cut down on his activities. He did everything that everyone else did. Was that a case of being driven to impress or trying to keep up with the latest beat? What is/was chasing Oscar Pistorius?
Relations with the opposite sex
Trish Taylor, mother of Samantha Taylor, an ex girlfriend of Oscar is glad that her daughter was not in his clutches any more. Could it be that Pistorius held her captive in some way and what did he do to Sammy? Reportedly, Sammy knew all about Oscar’s dark side and told a newspaper that he wasn’t the way people thought of him. What kind of person is he?
Reeva Steenkamp was supposed to give a speech to schoolchildren on the day she died at the hand of her lover, about an abusive family relationship she experienced.
Was it abuse that ended her life?
