They say time heals all wounds, but even though it’s been six months since Christina Grimmie was shot and killed, the pain of her death is still incredibly strong. Police have been working tirelessly since that fateful June day to figure out why Kevin Loibl traveled to the Orlando concert armed heavily, and while they still don’t have all the answers, pieces of the puzzle are slowly coming together.
Friends of the 27-year-old previously revealed that he was obsessed with the singer and “went on a mission to change his appearance” so she would “someday be his wife.” Now, authorities released evidence pictures from the day of the murder, including one that shows the mentally ill man watching the 22-year-old performing on stage hours before he fatally shot her three times.

There wasn’t any time for fear; it was my first instinct to tackle him, so that’s what I did,” Mark Grimmie, Christina’s brother, told the Orlando Sentinel about the night his sister died. “I looked, and she was on the floor and I just remember screaming bloody murder and jumping on him, then hitting him. It was like a nightmare. Everyone was gone. I’m the only one there and I’m sitting on the floor with two bodies.”
