Pistorius’s release makes headlines all over the world

# Oscar Pistorius’s release from jail has made headlines all over the world. The former Paralympic champion fell from grace when he killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, early in 2013 – just a few months after being hailed as an inspiration for becoming the first double amputee to compete in an Olympic Games the previous year in London. Pistorius will reside in the home of his uncle, Arnold, in Pretoria. Steenkamp’s mother, June, said after his release she was the one serving a life sentence after the killing of her child.
