Reeva Steenkamp: Model and law graduate with 'wicked' sense of humor

Story highlights

  • The striking, platinum-haired model was gearing up for her reality television debut
  • "What do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow?" she tweeted day before death
  • Before she started dating Pistorius, Reeva Steenkamp was famous in her own right
A week before her death, South African model Reeva Steenkamp talked about her secure, blissful environment.
"I woke up in a happy, safe home this morning," she tweeted. "Not everyone did."
Four days after she posted that message, neither did she.
The 29-year-old model was shot dead by her boyfriend at his house in Pretoria. She died on Valentine's Day last year.
Her boyfriend, Olympian Oscar Pistorius, 27, has been convicted of culpable homicide, the South African term for unintentionally -- but unlawfully -- killing a person. He was also found guilty of one gun charge in an unrelated shooting at a restaurant.
