Six months ago, 22 year old Christina Grimmie was shot and killed during a meet and greet in Orlando, Florida. The beloved singer and YouTuber has been regretted by many of her fans who were shocked at the news of her untimely death. Recently a few pictures from her last public appearance surfaced and knowing that those were her last moments alive is chilling. Furthermore, as if in a prophetic foreshadowing, the killer can be seen as well.
Grimmie was mostly known for her appearance on The Voice in 2014, where she was mentored by Adam Levine. After that, her amazing talent and good personality helped her reach a celebrity status.
Grimmie left this earth at only 22, when James Loibl, 27, shot the rising star twice in the head and chest after her Orlando performance in June.
Photograph taken on the day of the shooting that were used in the police investigation show Loibl in the back of the crowd with his arms crossed, waiting for an opportunity to make his deadly move.
The crowd had no idea that Loibl was armed with two handguns, holstered inside the back of his jeans, as well as a hunting knife strapped around his left ankle.
Following the concert, the man shot Grimmie during the fan sign after the concert.
“Christina never judged anyone, so it didn’t matter what someone looked like or if they acted weirdly, she just had this way with people. Everyone loved her and we literally never had a problem with any fan. Nothing,” her brother, Mark said of Loibl sticking out like a sore thumb in the crowd of teenage girls.
When it was Loibl’s turn to meet Grimmie, she opened her arms for a hug. Loibl then shot her before also killing himself.
After her shocking passing, many celebrities mourned her loss. Adam Levine even offered to pay for her funeral, while Selena Gomez was sent into a tailspin by the tragic news.
