Why are we not surprised?!?
Hilton Botha was the lead detective in Oscar Pistorius' murder case, but after he got the boot because he mixed up pertinent information in the paralympian's trial and 'cuz he's facing murder charges — he now resigned from the South African police force.
"He handed in his resignation yesterday and it was accepted with immediate effect. We are not going into the details."
Hilton is still facing charges for allegedly shooting at seven people that were riding in a taxi minibus in 2011, as well as murdering a woman and then cutting up her body and flushing her down a drain.
This man really needs to get it together, and if leaving the force will help him with his life, then so be it!
