Suspect in Facebook homicide video widens to 5 states - Is now dead

The video of the shooting is on liveleaks from what I hear this guy shot someone random because he was angry at his girlfriend. He walked up to the elderly man and made him say some girls name a few times then said this is reason you are going to die and shot him as the man pleaded for his life. He is still on the loose so be careful in northern states. I think spiritually something is off for people to pull something like this off. If you are reading this Steve please turn yourself in to the authorities.

Suspect Steve Stephens

Cleveland, Ohio (CNN)A manhunt for a suspect who authorities said killed an elderly man and then posted the video on Facebook expanded outside Ohio, with authorities calling on residents of nearby states to be on alert.

Steve Stephens, 37, is suspected of killing 74-year-old Robert Godwin on Sunday in a residential area east of Cleveland, police said.
An aggravated murder warrant has been issued for Stephens.

Terrible. The man he killed was a great man from what family and friends are saying. He would give the shirt off his back to help someone my kind of guy. T he kind of guy making Merica great. I don't know if the killer played too many video games or if he was influenced by the constant glamorized violence in music and film.

Video of killing can be found but watch at your discretion.

I hope they get him alive too - if only to find out about the 13 other people he's allegedly killed. I have no desire to watch the video, I genuinely don't understand why people would want to seek it out.

I have a plan if an escapee, felon, homicidal maniac tries to enter home. Cameras are in place. I monitor everything with motion sensors. All the windows are tinted. I would give this guy a battle. I want to get some mean ass dogs.

He used a gun, so how bad could it be? Probably no worse than this guy who murdered an innocent woman while recording it:

I grew up near Cleveland and am here right now. Robert Godwin went out collecting cans (for $$) before having Easter dinner, hence the bag in his hand. He has a wife and two young boys - around 10 and 12. They are completely stunned. Really really heartbreaking.

They are breaking "news" every few hours but there is no NEWS. They have press conferences but are saying the same thing over and over like the car license etc etc. Dude ain't driving that car no more! My guess is if he is alive, he's holed up in Cleveland. These "sightings" all over the country are just so maddening.

They just found Stephens in Erie PA. Short Police chase before he committed sucide.

And whether he recorded it or not, that incident with the reporter was done on live TV during a morning show.

But yeah, the other guy is dead. Coward front to back.

He was still in the car. Spotted in a McD's parking lot. Thank goodness he was a genius.

Do you think the fact that he could do something so shocking on camera was part of the pull for him? Obviously the guy was deranged but he got to blame his mother and girlfriend AND kill somebody on tape. Right before he got caught they were calling for the news stations to stop showing it. Could push someone similar off the edge.

I bet some of y'all are just tickled that the suspect is a Black American man and probably posted
his picture in this thread with unbridled glee as I see another picture of a Black American man who
allegedly killed a person on a live media feed is posted as if no white American man has ever
killed a person on a live media feed.

He killed a great man and guess what? That man was black and his family are good people. It was disturbing as it was on FB live. This was like the Craigslist Killer.

I personally feel for and identify with the victim and his family. Right before he got caught they were on the news giving him forgiveness and asking him to turn himself in while obviously grieving. He has a large family. They are remarkble.

No way in hell would I watch that video. I'm kind of unnerved at the clip the asshole news kept showing of their encounter where it cut off just as Mr. Godwin seemed to realize what was happening and raised his plastic bag and braced. God, I can't unsee his face and imagine his terror, and it hurts me to my heart.

Yep. I felt so sad hearing them speak. Great family and after hearing them speak I know the man killed was great man.

Yes - we live in a society where people are able to send a message to the world; that can be used in a positive or negative way. In killing an innocent man he mis-directed his anger in a way that he knew would hurt his mother and girlfriend most, and in a way that would gain him notoriety in the process. I suspect the part that excited him was driving around looking for someone to kill - like being in a real-life video game. I hope others do not copy but I suspect they will.

I thought the same thing. Said to myself, I could not do that, especially so soon - maybe never. Inspiring people, gave me chills.

Agree. So disturbing.

I have avoided the video at all costs - even turning off the news. I see it as an advertisement every time it is shown. If only one person who sees it on the news seeks out the full video then the news has promoted what he has done; maybe it might have planted a seed - therefore I believe news outlets need to question the ethics of showing any of these types of videos.

The skin color of the victim and his family has nothing to do with the point I'm making that some
of you guys mostly see skin color chiefly as his analogue (a person who committed murder on a
live media feed) was another Black man accused of doing so was posted in this thread when it
could have been anybody; and that my hunch is that Stephens reinforces for some of you white
people in this thread the idea of the crazy, unsettled, unpredictably dangerous Black American male
so that when you encounter someone who you believe to be similarly dispositioned, you over-react
and kill an innocent man with your AR-15.
