Hilton Botha, the former lead detective in the Oscar Pistorius murder case, has resigned from the police force, South African Police spokesman Brig. Neville Malila said Thursday
The South African Police Service pulled Botha from the Pistorius case after prosecutors reinstated attempted murder charges against him in a 2011 case.
Botha is accused of chasing and firing on a minibus full of people while drunk. He is charged with seven counts of attempted murder.
Holy moley! He should have resigned after this event, if true.
look like reprisal against for him not buyin into "i didn't kill'er it was an accident" byline...
The timing of the"reinstatement" of Botha's old case is a bit suspect! Maybe he can testify as a private citizen who happened upon the scene!!
