YouTube Stars Forced To Hide From Deranged Fan In Deadly Home Invasion!

Gavin Free Megan Turney YouTube

According to a police report, the "single, lonely and disturbed" man from neighbouring New Mexico drove 11 hours to reach the couple's home. A gun was allegedly fired from Giles' auto, leading to officers returning fire. She was shot dead in June, 2016 while signing autographs for fans. After an exchange of gunfire with police he died in the couple's drive.

Police searched Giles' phone, where they found multiple notes in which he talks about Turney and Free by name.

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. The incident took place on January 26th, after police received a call from a woman who said she and her boyfriend awoke to the sound of a gunshot and breaking glass. "Based on the footage seen, it was apparent that Giles' sole intent was to cause harm to someone who resides there", police documented in a search warrant.

Free, 29, is the co-host of a YouTube video series of slow-motion videos.

The officers found Giles backing out of the driveway in his Lincoln sedan with a New Mexico license plate and ordered him to stop.

Free and Turney are most famous for their roles at Rooster Teeth productions, where they've worked on various different shows over the last decade. Giles' phone contained "more than 1000 notes" about the couple, one of which read that "I want Gavin Free to die alone, with no children". After hearing the gunshot, the officer fired back, killing the suspect, according to Assistant Police Chief Troy Gay. "Heart you guys so much", Turney tweeted.

Detectives said it was clear that Giles "developed a fondness of Turney yet resented Free for his lifestyle and success". Authorities wanted to search Giles' Albuquerque apartment because they thought "evidence related to the planned burglary and homicides of Megan Turney and Gavin Free will be found", the search warrant says.

"Thanks for all the support and concern regarding the recent incident", Free wrote Monday on Twitter.

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".
