Now the information is starting to flow.

Orlando police have positively identified Christina Grimmie's murderer, not even a full day after the musician was so tragically and publicly murdered after a performance in the central Florida city.

According to Orlando cops, the man is 27-year old, and from nearby St. Petersburg, Florida — just a two-hour drive from Orlando.

Police are confident in saying the man's name is Kevin James Loibl.

They believe he drove from his home in St. Petersburg to the event Friday night in Orlando while making plans to return to St. Petersburg after the show.

Obviously, that's a sign that at least at some point in the process, he felt like he was going to get away with the crime.

Loibl committed suicide after Christina's brother tackled him to prevent him from escaping or harming other people after he walked up and fired on the singer after the show.

Orlando police have released this picture of Loibl (below):

Police have searched Loibl's home, though there's no indication yet about what they found.

Such a needless, senseless act of violence.

RIP, Christina.
