He seemed to have a fixation with hurting Free, and the police found over 1,000 notes about the couple on his phone, as well as recorded threats, like "I want Gavin Free to die alone, with no children". He drove 11 hours from Albuquerque to Austin, before breaking into the couple's house at around 3:40 am on January 26.
The two internet personalities are known for posting lively videos on YouTube that give fans a glimpse into their home life together.
Police determined that it was "apparent that Giles' sole intent was to cause harm to someone who resides there".
Following the incident, both Turney and Free took to Twitter to thank Ausitn Police.
Gavin Free is the creator of the Slow Mo Guys channel on YouTube along with Daniel Gruchy; the duo created a YouTube ad-supported original series that launched last month. People whom police interviewed - who were not named in the warrant - described Giles as single, lonely and disturbed, the document says. After hearing the gunshot, the officer fired back, killing the suspect, according to Assistant Police Chief Troy Gay. It seems like he envied Free's aspirational lifestyle and his romantic relationship with Turney. "The Albuquerque Journal reports that not only did Giles" phone include notes demonstrating a "fondness" for Turney specifically, but showed hostility toward her boyfriend, Free.
Stats Canada reports January unemployment rise in Victoria, Nanaimo and Canada
To partially offset the declines, Statistics Canada said the economy added 49,000 full-time positions last month. Statistics Canada says the unemployment rate in January was 4.6 per cent, compared to 6.0 in December.
When Austin Police Officers arrived at the address, they saw a dark colored Lincoln sedan back out of the driveway before a shot was sacked from inside.
The Travis County Medical Examiner's Office's preliminary findings suggest the fatal gunshot to Giles was self-inflicted, but an official ruling on his death is under review. They also said nothing had been stolen from the property. The search revealed Giles "was an avid player of video games and was known for watching YouTube videos".
"I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and concern regarding the recent indecent", Gavin tweeted. "It's been a rough time for Meg and myself the last few weeks but we are doing ok".
"I want to give a huge thanks to Austin Police for the fantastic response time".
A search warrant was served on Giles's apartment a couple of days after the incident occurred.
