According to The Sun, a close friend of him, Bill Schroder told the publication that he wants the family to forgive for murdering their daughter, and he is now a changed man.
"What he really, really wants is forgiveness. I said to him that if he had killed my daughter I doubt I would forgive him." "He is more concerned about forgiveness than actually getting out on parole. I fact, he has a real fear about getting parole as he knows there will be a backlash," he said
Bill told the publication that Oscar has now turned to God. Oscar was sentenced to 13 years and five months in 2016 for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.
The Paralympic gold medalist was initially sentenced to six years but the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned his sentence.
Reeva was murdered on Valentine's Day in 2013 and during the trial, Oscar maintained that he mistook her for an intruder when he shot her through a bathroom door.
"I believed that someone had entered my house. I was too scared to switch a light on. I grabbed my 9mm pistol from underneath my bed. On my way to the bathroom, I screamed words to the effect for him/them to get out of my house and for Reeva to phone the police. It was pitch dark in the bedroom and I thought Reeva was in bed."
