Update Steve Stephens is dead. He committed suicide. Story on the page of my blog.
So the FIRST person he kills is a defenseless 74 year old man?
What a PUSSY! And/OR maybe this is just him showing that he’s heartless right now to the point where he’d kill an old man.
If the video doesn’t load visit
The video BELOW is uncut. GRAPHIC. I had to share it. This guy is cold.
I’m trying to be hard because I’m a blogger and I see crime all the time, but to see a person record themselves while doing this is insane. I feel sorry for his family having to see this.
Cleveland police were searching Sunday for a man who they said killed a person live on Facebook and bragged about having committed many other homicides. The suspect, identified as Steve Stephens is considered armed and dangerous police said after the homicide in Northeast Cleveland near the Lake Erie Shore. The FBI was providing assistance, a spokeswoman told NBC News.
Police said on Sunday the man broadcast the killing on Facebook live and has claimed to have committed multiple other homicides which are yet to be verified. There are no other victims that we know of Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said at a news conference. Authorities said the killing of the confirmed victim, Robert Goodwin aged 74 appeared to be random.
There has been no sighting of Stephens since the killing at 2 o’clock p.m. William said, and it wasn’t clear whether he was still in Cleveland. Earlier students at Cleveland State University, near downtown, were told to shelter in place or stay away from the school. William said alerts have been sent out across the state, and the governor promised the Ohio State Highway Patrol help
A series of posts Sunday on what Authority said was Stephens Facebook page complain that he had lost everything to gambling. The post name specific people whom the user wanted to talk to, and at one point he wrote I killed 12 people today, and would not stop until he could speak to his mother and a second woman. He later came on to say I killed 15 people today because of the second woman. The user called it his easterday Slaughter.
NBC News archived the post before the account was removed this is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on Facebook, the company said. Williams did not address the details of the Facebook post but said, if Steve has an issue he needs to talk to folks to get that resolved. Williams later went on to say I know you have relationships with the clergy out here, and I encourage you to call them and turn yourself in. Stephens worked for Beech Brook, a Children’s Mental Health Center. In a statement, a center spokesperson said, we are shocked and horrified. We are just horrified for the victims and potential victims.
Stephens was described as black, six feet, 1 inch tall, weighing 244 pounds and bald with a full beard. He was last seen wearing a black or dark blue and gray striped polo shirt, and was driving a white Ford Fusion with temporary tags, authorities said.
Cleveland police hunting gunman who randomly shot and killed an elderly man LIVE on Facebook in a fury over gambling debts and a break-up with his girlfriend… and he claims to have killed 14 more
Cleveland State University has issued a shelter in place, a campus spokesman told Fox 8.
The university also reportedly sent out a text messages to its students which read: ‘Cleveland police are searching for a murder suspect last seen south of Interstate 90 in the area of E93rd.’
The Cleveland Clinic is also on lock down now because of the shooter, according to Tia Ewing of Cleveland 19 News.
She also reported that his ex-girlfriend, Joy Lane, is currently in protective custody.
Stephens’ Facebook and all posts have since been taken down. The video of the shooting was on his page for three hours.
A Facebook spokesperson said in a statement: ‘This is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on Facebook. We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook, and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety.’
Cleveland Police held a news conference with Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and police chief Calvin Williams
Mayor Jackson said: ‘We want to communicate to him that he will eventually be caught. He need not do any more harm to anyone, any innocent people, and any concerns and problems he’s having we’re here to have a conversation with him.’
Williams then said: ‘We need Steve to turn himself in. There are two families out there who are hurting, Mr Godwin’s family and people who care about Steve, we are asking him to turn himself in.’
‘Everyone is out there looking for Steve. We want this to end with as much peace as we can bring to this right now, and we want him to turn himself in. If that doesn’t happen we have all of our partners on this and we’ll look till we find him.’
He then said that they have the FBI and state and county partners working with them, and asked for anyone who knows anything to call 911.
….What a bum. What a fucking loser. You’re your own problem idiot! If you don’t like yourself, Kill yourself! … I understand mental illness, but goodness. Nobody has to die… What’s the point of killing other than to utilize control. It’s obvious that he had none left.
He LITERALLY says this and people think he’s joking. He really wants her dead.
There is a video linked above to show all details in this case.
This is really happening and many people don’t believe it. They think it’s a joke. He says he just snapped as he on the phone explaining to a friend of his. A friend who he later tells that he loves him. Stevens says that he SHAMES many others but also shames himself.
Wow… if they find these bodies, this will be. …
If you want every detail Heavy.Com has a full exclusive of friends and family, and So does, Dailymail.co.uk
THIS story runs deep. I’m just giving you the basics.
I’m not covering a this story. The two sources above are great.
Facebook has cleared up the confusion. This killing was NOT done on Facebook Live. Steve committed this crime as he was recording it then uploaded it to Facebook. The video stayed on his page for three hours before it was shut down.
The video is real.
I have the full videos on my blog. Just visit my home page.
He has NOT been found. LE does not know of his whereabouts. Any information contrary is false.
There have been NO other bodies found and no other victims declared as of Monday morning.
Many GOFUNDME campaigns are open. THEY ARE ALL SCAMS! ! DO NOT DONATE. The family has not set up any accounts. GOFUNDME is aware of the scams and are fixing it where they receive not one dime.
Stupid idiots always come out during a time like this.
More video of Steve on a day out fishing
Did he want to seem bigger than what he was by lying and saying he’s killed 14 people thus far? Or…Is he telling the truth in a cunning sort of way? Perhaps this isn’t about Easter but instead a series of murders that’s he’s committed over time.
I recall him saying this isn’t his first time. Behind every lie there is some truth.
And what’s strange is he refused to talk about what happened between he and Joy. Apparently he’s uncomfortable with discussing it. But he had NO PROBLEM killing. How does that happen?
I gotta add, this is getting a little over the top. When I thought he had killed 14 people I was like, STOP HIM! But just ONE? This really isn’t news to the point where we should be going crazy and doing Nationwide manhunts. I’m not saying that his life wasn’t valuable, but this is extreme.
