Kevin James Loibl (March 10th, 1989 - June 10th, 2016) was a Florida man who assassinated the singer Christina Grimmie.
Kevin Loibl was a deranged fan who had an abnormal infatuation with the singer, he lost weight and had hair and eye surgery, in an effort to be her boyfriend only to fail. He went too far, became a homicidal maniac, and finally killed the singer out of revenge. Kevin did not have any known mental problems says his family, but “lived like a hermit,” covering up the windows in his room with aluminum foil and heavy curtains to block out the light.
Kevin Loibl brought two 9mm Glock handguns, a hunting knife, and extra ammunition to kill Christina Grimmie.
On Thursday, June 9, 2016, Kevin Loibl traveled to Orlando from his hometown, St. Petersburg, in a taxicab. On Friday, June 10, he arrived at The Plaza Live. While Christina Grimmie was signing autographs, Kevin shot her in the head and torso. Christina's brother, Mark Grimmie tackled the shooter, stopping him from harming anyone else. Kevin broke free from Mark's grapple, and committed suicide by inflicting a gunshot wound to his head.
Christina Grimmie was then rushed to the Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead and buried in the Berlin Cemetery of her hometown.
