Multi-state search targets suspect in Facebook video murder

Cleveland police were searching for Steve Stephens, who filmed himself killing 74-year-old Robert Godwin, a grandfather of 14, on Easter Sunday, said NBC News. Police urged the public to remain vigilant.

Police said they have searched "dozens of locations" for the suspect, Steve Stephens, and tried to convince him to turn himself in when they spoke with him on his cell phone on Sunday.

Steve Stephens, the alleged Facebook killer from Cleveland, is somewhere in the state of Pennsylvania as his cellphone may have given law enforcement clues to his approximate whereabouts.

Police say Stephens should be considered armed and risky.

Residents of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania have been told to be on alert, so there's a lot of information swirling.

"We want this to end with as much peace as we can bring to this right now", Williams said, adding police knew of no other victims. He is possibly heading to NY to see family, police said. Sources told FOX8 the vehicle was a Ford Fusion with temporary tags.

The FBI is assisting in the investigation. The suspect did broadcast another video on Facebook Live at one point, the spokesperson said. Police earlier Sunday had said Stephens had broadcasted the murder on Facebook Live.

In the disturbing video, Stephens can be seen walking up to Godwin, who was a passer-by in the area collecting aluminum cans in a plastic bag.

Who is the suspect?

"And that we're saying to him that he need not do any more", said Jackson. "We're not going to stop until he's in custody", Williams said.

Stephens has reportedly claimed "to have committed multiple other homicides which are yet to be verified", reports Cleveland Police. "But if he doesn't, we'll find him", he said.

According to an NBC report, Stephens mentored foster kids at Beech Brook, a children's mental health center.

"We are shocked and horrified like everyone else", Nancy Kortemeyer, a spokeswoman for the facility told CNN. "We don't know. We're using any and all resources to locate him as soon as possible". "Can you say "Joy Lane"?"

Stephens is a 37-year-old black man who works as a jobs counselor for teens and adults. I am sorry that all of this has happened. My heart and prayers go out to the family members of the victim. "I'm optimistic. I think things will happen very quickly". He was a really good guy. "I mean, he would give shirt off his back". Regardless, all funds raised for the Godwins will be transferred directly to the family. They had Easter dinner together shortly before he was slain.

Authorities are telling people in Cleveland, as well as Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and MI, to be on the lookout for the suspect, 37-year-old Steve Stephens.
