Happy Valentine’s Day, guys. Here’s a morbid way to start a holiday centered around depictions of anatomically incorrect human hearts: Let’s talk about Olympian Oscar Pistorius, who was just charged with shooting and killing his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his South African home.

See, members of the Lonely Hearts Club? It’s not so bad being single. At least your beloved won’t kill you today.

Police responded to reports of gunshots early on Feb. 14, and while paramedics tried to revive Steenkamp, she was pronounced dead on the scene. She was reportedly shot in the hand and head.

Officials say that they plan to deny the 26-year-old Olympian bail.

“I don’t know nothing,” Oscar’s father Henke Pistorius told reporters. “It will be extremely obnoxious and rude to speculate. I don’t know the facts. If anyone makes a statement, it will be Oscar. He’s sad at the moment.”

A rep for Pistorius says the couple had a “healthy, fabulous relationship.” Alrighty then.

To refresh your memory, Pistorius is the double-amputee who ran in the Olympics with specialized carbon-fiber blade prosthesis, which earned him the nickname “Blade Runner.” It also landed him on E Online’s 10 Most Inspiring Stars of the Year list alongside Kristen Stewart.

Homewreckers and accused murderers? Well played, E. Well played.
