CCTV footage reveals Reeva Steenkamp's final hours

Leaked CCTV footage showing Reeva Steenkamp arriving at Silver Woods Country Estate in Pretoria hours before she was killed has been aired on South African television.

Steenkamp was shot and killed at the home of her boyfriend, Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius, in the early hours of February 14.

Pistorius has admitted that he pulled the trigger, and will stand trial later this year.

It also emerged that Pistorius and his family had sent bouquets of flowers to the Steenkamp home.

He reported to a correctional facility yesterday morning in accordance with his bail conditions, a family spokeswoman said. "I confirmed with his uncle Arnold that he did report to authorities," Lunice Johnston said.

The 2012 Paralympics 400m gold medallist had spent his first weekend at home, after being held for eight days at a police station. Reeva's cousin, Sharon Steenkamp, said the dead woman's parents, Barry and June Steenkamp, were still coming to terms with the death of their daughter.

"They're doing okay – taking it one day at a time at the moment," she said.

She confirmed that bouquets of flowers from Pistorius and his family were delivered to the Steenkamp's home in Port Elizabeth. But she could not say how the gesture was received by Reeva's parents.
