After taking a monthlong break from his murder trial, doctors have finally concluded that Oscar Pistorius was NOT suffering from any sort of mental illness when he shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp.
The former olympian has been on trail for months now for the murder of his girlfriend, however, prosectutor Gerrie Nel was concerned the defense would claim Oscar was distressed at the time of the shooting if he was found guilty, and he requested an evaluation to be done.
One psychologist and three psychiatrists at the Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria came to the conclusion that he did not suffer from any mental illnesses and that he was "capable of appreciating the wrongfulness of his act."
The good news is that Oscar's lawyers can no longer lean on the possibility of anxiety or emotional distress as a defense for Reeva's murder, and the even better news is the trial can now continue.
Hopefully this means we're one BIG step closer to getting some answers.
