Cleveland Facebook Live Murderer Still At Large
April 17, 2017
After shooting dead a 74-year-old man on Easter Sunday in Cleveland, Steve Stephens is still on the run from police.
The horrific incident took place in Ohio’s second largest city, and was live-streamed to Facebook, where it remained for 3 hours before it was removed.
Stephens tragically took the life of Robert Godwin Sr in what appeared to be a random attack last Sunday.
He asked the pensioner to say the name of his believed ex-girlfriend, who allegedly hasn’t called him since they broke up.
Stephens had threatened to shoot 15 other people in his Facebook stream, which has put Cleveland police on high alert.
Even the neighbouring states of Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan and New York have been put on high alert, with fears growing that the shooter fled Cleveland after the gruesome act.
In another video posted to Facebook (above), Stephens appears to tell a friend that he has shot 13 other people, but this has not been confirmed by police.
He blamed the heartless murder on his break up with girlfriend Joy Lane, who has since been taken into police custody.
Stephens and Lane were together for 3 years and recently split, which seems to have been the catalyst for the ensuing troubles which have occurred.
Speaking to CNN, his mother Maggie Green said it would be a ‘miracle’ if she and her son ever saw each other again.
She also said Stephens was ‘mad with his girlfriend’, and “That’s why he is shooting people and he won’t stop until his mother or girlfriend tell him to stop.”
The ex-girlfriend Joy Lane has also been speaking to the press, and said “I can’t believe this is happening. I am very sad for everyone involved. I am praying for them and I am praying for Steve. He needs help.”
