New details have emerged that fill in some of the missing pieces in the Christina Grimmie murder.

Best Buy co-workers of Kevin Loibl, the 27-year old who shot and killed Grimmie after her show at the Plaza Live on June 10, have talked to TMZ about his all-consuming obsession with the singer, who, by all accounts, he didn't even know personally.

According to them, he would play her music regularly at work, all the while commenting with certainty that one day they would be married. Loibl reportedly even went to great lengths to change his appearance to make himself more attractive to Grimmie, undergoing Lasik surgery, hair transplants and going vegan to lose weight. When his co-workers would tease him that Grimmie already had a boyfriend, Loibl would reportedly become "enraged."

More on this story as it develops.
