Far from the courtroom drama that has gripped South Africa, the family of Pistorius' slain girlfriend, Steenkamp, has struggled with its own private deluge of grief, frustration and bewilderment. The victim's relatives also harbor misgivings about efforts by the Olympian's family to reach out to them with condolences. Pistorius, meanwhile, spent Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 at his uncle's home in an affluent suburb of Pretoria, the South African capital, after a judge released him on bail.
