    Hey, so I don't know if anyone else is watching the documentary about OP and RS on Channel 5 right now, but it's pretty interesting. RS' parents have shown pictures painted by RS when she was young which eerily mimic the events that happened surrounding her death. While it's easy to say that the pictures are faked, I don't believe her parents would do that.

    OP is due to stand trial on Monday, which is probably why this documentary is being aired now.

    Any thoughts on the whole situation?

      It is a pretty big, shocking story. This event, to the South Africans, is of a similar gravitas to what would happen if David Beckham killed Victoria.

      Not that it's only South Africans that find it shocking but at a national scale so to speak.

      They were in the show. I don't know if channel 5 has an iplayer type of thing, but if you can watch it, do!

      One painting was done at 14 and depicted reeva as an angel standing in a field next to a ladder up to the sky, whilst a shadowy gunman stands in the background.

      The other painting depicts a girl curled up in the corner of a room, naked and with her head in her hands, which is apparently very similar to how reeva was sitting when she died.

      it's all a little bit spooky!

      Bumpety Bump. There's another show about the trial on tonight about key questions in the trial. Just thought I'd let people know. Again, I think it's on channel 5.
