The deceased was killed during a planned heist by the lady he met on the internet.
According to Us Magazine, Hilarie had just returned from a bowling date with Bustos, who had been pretending all the while.
She reportedly took three armed men to his residence, who robbed and shot him dead despite revealing to them that he has a 5-year-old daughter.

The deceased "was shot in the head with a .38-caliber gun, per the AP. While Hilarie bled to death on the kitchen floor, the group then made off with an Xbox console, video games, three flat-screen TVs, an iPhone, a wallet and other items, according to police documents", Us Magazine reported.
For her role in setting up the heist, Bustos received a meager sum of $50.
She has been arrested along with her accomplices and charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and conspiracy to commit murder.
It has been a sad loss for the friends and family of Adam Hilarie, who has been described as someone who was devoted to his daughter.
Jennifer Meyer, a close friend to the deceased said, “You couldn’t find a better dad,”
“Adam’s life began and ended with his baby girl. Everything he did revolved around his daughter, that little princess was the light of his life", she added.
