Family and friends gather on Tuesday for the funeral service for Reeva Steenkamp. But there is no closure. Her brother Adam says the family still wants to know what happened Valentine's Day -- when her boyfriend, 'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius shot her down in the prime of her life. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ADAM STEENKAMP, REEVA STEENKAMP'S BROTHER SAYING: "The truth must come out. I think its what everyone one needs including us as a family all the interest that has been shown in this case because of Oscar and his international celebrity possibly for all the reasons he wold never expect something will come out of this that is positive but the first thing that must happen is that the truth must come out and then we can all deal with this." Pistorius has told the courts it was an accident -- He says when he fired at a locked door in his bathroom he thought it was an intruder. At his bail hearing Wednesday a detective testified that a witness had heard "non-stop shouting" shortly before Steenkamp was shot dead.
