YouTube Couple Hides in Closet After Armed Fan Breaks Into House

Gavin Free and Meg Turney Survived a Horrifying Home Invasion

Gavin Free and Meg Turney Survived a Horrifying Home Invasion

The Albuquerque Journal reports that a warrant searching Christopher Giles' cellphone and other electronics returned more than a thousand notes about YouTube stars Gavin Free and Megan Turney.

He drove 11 hours from his New Mexico home to Austin, to confront the couple.

YouTube content creators Gavin Free and Meg Turney were forced to hide in their home after an obsessed gunman allegedly broke in with the intent to kill them, according to police.

Turney and Free told officers they were woken up by the sound of gunshots and shattered glass around 3 a.m. on January 26 and then heard someone walking around their home. As he was backing his auto out of the driveway, Austin Police Department officers arrived and ordered him to stop and leave the vehicle.

After Giles was confirmed to have died, police undertook a search of his home and belongings.

Turney reiterated Free sentiments in a separate tweet.

He said that he expects Russian Federation to continue using propaganda, social media and other means to meddle in USA politics. Officials also basically guaranteed the Russians are going to continue meddling in US elections this year.

"Based upon these notations, it was apparent that Giles developed a fondness of Turney yet resented Free for his lifestyle and success", the Statesman reported the affidavit saying.

Giles was described as lonely and disturbed. YouTube personalities Megan Turney and boyfriend Gavin Free just never expected one would turn up at their house with a gun. When the deputies searched the vehicle, they found a handgun in the suspect's hand, and a New Mexico driver's license with Giles' name and photo on it. Both Free and Turney have a huge following on the video platform. The medical examiner stated in an initial report that he had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Meg's boyfriend may be even more well known as both a part of the Rooster Teeth family and with his own show, The Slow Mo Guys (see below), whose channel has over 10 million subscribers. "It's been a rough time for Meg and myself the last few weeks but we are doing ok".

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".
