Police Report Of Christina Grimmie’s Murder Reveals Killer’s ‘Obsession’ & More Disturbing Details

The police have closed their investigation.

Almost two weeks after Christina Grimmie was shot and killed after her Orlando concert, police have closed the investigation on her death.

In the end, they believe 27-year-old Kevin Loibl acted alone, with reports revealing he was an “obsessed” fan.

As we previously reported, he went as far as getting hair transplants, Lasik eye surgery, and even went vegan to lose weight in order to impress the former The Voice contestant, though it was believed the two never had contact.

While the official police report doesn’t have a definitive motive for his killing, Kevin’s friend Cory Dennington told officials that he believed he had started to become obsessed with Christina as much as a year ago.

Cory revealed Kevin shared how he “watched everything to do with her,” and additionally the police reports states:

“[Kevin] spent most of his waking hours watching Christina on YouTube as well as constantly monitoring her social media accounts. Despite following her on social media, Loibl himself did not have a Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media account.”

The report continued:

“He said Loibl would not entertain the idea that his plan would not work and when Dennington did, he threatened to end their friendship. Loibl never elaborated on what he would do if he met Christina, but he referred to her as his ‘soul mate.'”

Another disturbing detail listed in the report revealed that the night before his attack on Christina, the killer paid for a hotel room:

“There was no luggage; no personal belongings visible and the bed looked as if he slept on top of the covers. In the trash it appeared he had purchased some food from the hotel snack bar and ate it in his room.”

The killer’s parents also shared with police how they never believed their son to have a history of mental illness, but that he lived “like a hermit” and had an “aversion to light,” using aluminum foil and heavy curtains to block out his windows. However in 2014, police were called to his home after a domestic disturbance involving Kevin and his dad’s girlfriend.


A detective also learned Kevin’s phone was encrypted so no data could be retrieved, “and it appeared Loibl had intentionally destroyed the hard drive” on his computer.

Even with all these details coming to light, thinking of Christina’s untimely passing is still so heartbreaking.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with her family and friends during this difficult time.
