Last Saturday in Orlando, a deranged music fan named Kevin Loibl shot and killed YouTube sensation and former contestant on “The Voice,” Christina Grimmie.
Grimmie was signing autographs after a performance with her band when Loibl shot her. Loibl was then tackled by Grimmie’s brother who tried to restrain the killer. Before police could arrive Loibl broke free and ended his own life.
In the days that have followed the death of the young girl, information on Loibl has come to light that puts a darker perspective on his atrocity.
According to coworkers at the Florida Best Buy where Loibl worked, he was obsessed with Grimmie and often spoke about how they would one day be husband and wife.
Loibl claimed that he would play video games with Grimmie online and that they had once met each other at one of her concerts.
This week TMZ reported that Loibl went even further to win her affection, and tried to drastically changed his physical appearance.
According to the gossip site, Loibl went on a vegan diet to lose weight, got hair plugs, and later LASIK eye surgery.
Four years before he murdered Grimmie, Loibl had a few previous run-ins with the law, when his father’s fiancé accused him of domestic violence.
