Absolute angel on Earth': Reeva Steenkamp, found dead in home of Olympian boyfriend Oscar Pistorius, remembered for beauty and brains

The 29-year-old FHM cover girl was the face of Avon South Africa but also had smarts — graduating with a law degree before becoming a professional model. She was found dead Thursday at Pistorius' home in Pretoria, South Africa. Friends say she was a rising star and was set to appear on the reality TV show, 'Tropika Island of Treasure 5.'

South African model Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead on Feb. 14, allegedly at the hands of her Olympic sprinting star boyfriend Oscar Pistorius, according to reports.
She described herself as the three B’s: “Brainy, blonde, bombshell.”

South African model Reeva Steenkamp’s tragic death stunned her family and friends Thursday, and they remembered the 29-year-old rising star as an “absolute angel on Earth.”

Police have charged Steenkamp’s boyfriend, Olympic double-amputee Oscar Pistorius, with murder after the FHM cover girl was found fatally shot four times in his home in Pretoria.

Early reports that Pistorius may have mistaken Steenkamp for a burglar did not come from police, authorities said.

 Reeva Steenkamp with her boyfriend, Oscar Pistorius, at the Feather Awards held in Johannesburg on Nov. 4. A publicist says they had been dating for a few months and were in a 'healthy' relationship.

Steenkamp’s publicist told Sky News the two had been dating for a few months and had a “healthy, fabulous relationship.” She was outspoken on Twitter, and even used it to showcase her disgust for violence against women.
