The parents of Oscar Pistorius' murdered girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, have expressed their gratitude to the people offering financial and other assistance to them, according to the Steenkamp family lawyers.

In an email from Barry and June Steenkamp's lawyers, Steenkamp's parents have appreciated the help given to them following their statement that they were left broke by their daughter's death, News24 reports.

However, the email further stated that it is important that the issues surrounding the administration of such funds be given immediate attention.

Earlier, Steenkamp's parents, Barry and June Steenkamp, who are a retired horse trainer and a former caterer respectively, claimed that they were financially supported by Steenkamp's modeling and reality-TV career, which has come to an end because of their daughter's death. (ANI)
