'Just got my new beauty today. SIG Sauer 9MM. Ask any questions I will answer,' he wrote in a post last week on an Instagram account that has now been deleted. Other fake accounts were circulating online on Wednesday morning as Crumbley remained in police custody, refusing to cooperate with investigators.
It was a quiet scene at his family home, which his parents have not returned to since going to visit him yesterday.
Prosecutors have announced that Crumbley will be charged as an adult with four counts of murder and domestic terror among a total of 24 charges. They've also suggested that they may charge his father for not keeping his gun and ammunition out of his reach.
Oakland County Prosecutor Karen D. McDonald said there was a 'mountain' of evidence against Crumbley so far.
'Shortly, we'll be announcing whether or not there will be other charges. We know that owning a gun means securing it properly, locking it and keeping ammo separate and not allowing access to others, particularly minors.
'We have to hold individuals accountable,' she said.
