For Oscar Pistorius, the beloved athlete who went from inspiration to murder suspect, Valentine's Day 2014 marks the one-year anniversary of his girlfriend's death.
The South African, a double amputee who became a global sensation at the 2012 London Olympics, has been charged with the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.
The 27-year-old wrote Friday in a statement:
"No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved - and continues to love Reeva."
"The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day ... the pain and sadness, especially for Reeva's parents, family and friends, consumes me with sorrow. "
"I will carry with me for the rest of my life."
