Reeva's cousin: "Reeva saw a broken soul in Oscar"

Reeva Steenkamp's cousin says the reason Reeva stuck with Oscar was because "she saw a broken soul in him and wanted to care for it".

Talking to You magazine this week, Kim says that her cousin was amazing and that she remembers the time she first met Oscar. "I expected him to be more confident and he wasn't. I still thought to myself, 'Reeva, why is he just standing there and not talking to anyone", she says.

Only a few months later, she met the couple again for lunch when she asked Reeva if she was happy. The cryptic response she receives, she says, haunts her to this day.

The three were having lunch when Oscar got up to take a phone call. "I turned to Reeva and asked, 'Are you really happy?' And she shrugged and said 'Yes, well, we'll have to talk. We'll talk," Kim remembers.

"I've wished now about a thousand times that I'd asked her, 'What?' or insisted she tell me," Kim says, "Or let her go away with him and phoned the next day and asked, 'What did you mean by that?"
