Nearly one week after her tragic death, more details are surfacing about Christina Grimmie’s killer, Kevin Loibl.
Loibl’s former Best Buy co-workers told TMZ about his obsession with Grimmie, who he vowed would be his wife someday. At work, he would listen to her music and even hinted at meeting after a concert in March. He apparently changed his appearance to impress her, including losing weight, getting hair transplants and Lasik eye surgery.

According to his former colleagues, he claimed he played online games with her, but a source close to Christina denies she ever had contact with him. The co-workers also admitted teasing Loibl about never winning Grimmie’s affections since she was rumored to be dating her producer.
Christina will be laid to rest later this week in New Jersey, with a viewing scheduled for Friday and a service later that night, ABC News reports.
