From an amzing story to an extremely sad story. Remember Oscar Pistorius? The South African Olympian with TWO PROSTHETIC LEGS who ran track events in the London Olympics and Paralympics. He's been charged with murder, shooting and killing his girlfriend early Thursday morning.


The circumstances of the incident are still unclear but police in South Africa said they would oppose bail when the Paralympic gold medalist appears in court later today.  Police confirmed to South African media that a woman was shot in the arm and head. A 9mm pistol was recovered at the scene.


Sources say the girlfriend may have been in the process of surprising Oscar for Valentines day when the alleged incident occured.  Her name was Reeva Steenkamp, a model and recent contestant on "Tropika Island of Treasure 5," a South African reality TV show.
