A man named Christopher Giles drove 11 hours from New Mexico to the couple's home in Texas.
New Mexico resident Christopher Eric Giles was obsessed with Meg Turney and hated her boyfriend, Gavin Free. According to the police, it was these videos that led a man from Albuquerque, NM to resent Free and subsequently drive to Austin to confront the couple.
Police arrived at the scene ten minutes later and an initial report from the medical examiner suggested Giles died of a self-inflicted gunshot.
A spokeswoman for the Austin Police Department said the case is under investigation and she could not answer any additional questions about it. He was described by police as "single, lonely and disturbed".
The search warrant also revealed notes Giles wrote in his phone that provided more insight into his motives. They called 911 from their bedroom closet, where they hid while Giles searched the house.
By 3:40 a.m. on January 26, Giles had arrived at the couple's Hyde Park house, just over a mile north of the University of Texas campus, and had woken them up with the sound of a gunshot and breaking glass, according to KXAN. Giles was pronounced dead at the scene with a.45 caliber handgun by his side. One of the officers, identified in the Austin American-Statesman as Officer Matthew Jackson, fired back. Surveillance video showed Giles enter the home, and "based on the footage seen, it was apparent that Giles' sole intent was to cause harm to someone who resides there", the search warrant continued.
The man, who police later discovered had driven eleven hours from Albuquerque, New Mexico, turned out to be a deranged fan of Turney, a popular vlogger and video game streamer with over 340K subscribers.
Court documents stated: "Threatening thoughts were recorded by Giles and directed toward Gavin Free, i.e., 'I want Gavin Free to die alone, with no children'". "Hey everyone. I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and concern regarding the recent incident", he wrote.
Turney wrote: "Thank y'all so, so much for each and every kind message today and a special thank you to the Austin police for their quick response that night and their ongoing support during this hard time".
