A Pistorius Documentary Based on Speculation?

That didn’t take long!

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that just a week after South African Olympics hero Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, a documentary is in the works — not about Pistorius’s life or athletic feats (sorry ;), although that’s sure to be included, but about the shooting.

“BBC Three commissions an hourlong ‘fast-turnaround’ special about the South African Paralympics star and the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.” http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bbc-orders-oscar-pistorius-documentary-422980

Is that the fastest dash on record to document a crime and its preliminary heats?

Perhaps the now-defunct Dove Books had Nicole Brown friend Faye Resnick under contract to produce a book within a week of former football star O.J. Simpson’s June 17, 1994, arrest for the murders of his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman. By Oct. 22, just four months after the June 12 murders, word was out that “750,000 copies of Ms. Resnick’s book, ‘Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted,’ have been rushed into print.”   http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1994-10-22/features/1994295053_1_faye-resnick-brown-simpson-nicole-brown

Since so many facts about the Steenkamp shooting are as yet unknown and so much of what has been reported is based on rumors, gossip and fabrication, it seems like a lot of that is what the BBC documentary will be based on.
