Alexander D. (25) uploaded a goodbye video on the 21st of July, 2017 to let everyone know that he was planning to commit suicide. Alexander is from Belgium, but speaks English in his videos to make it clear to everyone that there’s nothing left to live for in his eyes. He talks to his mother, sister and best friend, apologizing to them for what would come and said goodbye. After that, he talks to his ex-girlfriend saying:
“…I told you ‘if you don’t love me leave’, and you told me 'I don’t want to leave, I’m going to stay because I love you’. So I went to work and when I got back, you were gone and I should’ve know. When I found that ring on the table, it killed me. It killed me in a way that I’ve never felt before… I know you’re not coming back. It hurts. It hurts so much. I would rather die now than to see you next week with somebody else… All the promises I made to you, I’m taking those to the grave. I never lied to you, I never cheated on you. I hoped you would’ve done the same, it would’ve prevented a lot of this. I’m sorry, but for me this feels like the right thing to do. I know a lot of people won’t understand it, that’s fine. But it makes sense to me, I can not take this pain…”
During the last weeks and days, Alexander tried to go to the neighborhood where his ex-girlfriend (18) lived, but got taken away by the police several times and even got a restraining order.
The grandparents were staying over at the girl’s house to protect her against him while her parents were on holiday to France. Eventually, Alexander would not commit suicide, but murder his ex-girlfriend and her grandparents by stabbing them to death on the 25th of July, 2017.
Alexander D. fled the scene and has not been found yet as of today, (7/26/2017).

No, we just, uh, well... we — we did drink a little bit. How'd you know that?
Because that's what she said she'd do. I said you wouldn't give her the money, and she said, "He will if I get him drunk." Probably because she thinks you're a cheap bastard. Oh... her words.
