Facebook Live Killer Still On The Loose, What You Should Know
Police in Ohio are still on the hunt for a man who murdered an elderly gentleman while on Facebook Live.
Steve Stephens is accused of logging on to the social media app, going live and hunting through the city of Cleveland, looking for someone to kill. With cell phone in hand, Stephens allegedly spotted 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr., approached him and senselessly shot him at close range.
Unfortunately, Stephens is still on the loose.
On Monday morning, Police Chief Calvin Williams said, “We don’t want people to panic. So far, there has been one fatality, one homicide. We are still asking Steve to turn himself in, but if he doesn’t, we will find him.”
While on FB, Steve stated that he had killed 15 people, but police have only confirmed one death. Stephens also claimed that a bitter breakup with his ex, Joy Lane, was the reason for what he called the “Easter Day Slaughter.” In addition to being upset about his love life, Stephens also claimed he “lost everything” due to his gambling habit.
Steve Stephens is a 6-foot 1-inch African-American man reportedly driving a white, late-model Ford Fusion with temporary Ohio tags. He was last seen wearing a dark blue and gray or black striped polo shirt. He is considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information on Stephens, authorities ask that you please contact the Cleveland police.
An aggravated murder warrant had been issued for Stephens and a warning for residents of Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan to be on alert.
