A manhunt is currently in progress for 37-year-old Steve Stephens, who broadcast himself fatally shooting an elderly man before claiming to have killed dozens more.
In the video, Stephens pulls up to the man as he walks down the road while stating he was going to kill the man. After telling the man to say his ex-girlfriend’s name, he then asks his age before shooting him point blank in the head.
The man, later identified as 74-year-old Robert Goodwin Sr., can be seen bleeding on the ground as Stevens walks back to his car and telling his ex-girlfriend this was her fault. You can watch the unedited video below, but be warned, it is the senseless death of an elderly man trying to shield himself with grocery bags.
Stevens then made several posts on Facebook explaining why he was killing people and, as you can imagine, the reasons make no sense to a sane person. Mostly he blames his ex and complains about losing everything to gambling. In another video he calls today his “Easter Day Slaughter” while mentioning being the butt of jokes and that none of his friends take him seriously.
After previously claiming to have killed 12 people, he later states he has now killed 15 people. He said most of the bodies could be found in an abandoned house. Police have not confirmed Stevens’ claims, but we know he as at least killed one person as it was recorded.
“Currently there are no other victims that we know of,” Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said. “So far there are no more victims that we know that are tied to Steve and this incident. But we are still encouraging people that if you have information on Steve’s whereabouts or any other victims that may be out there, to definitely give us a call. Just call 911.”
Cleveland police and the FBI are currently looking for Stephens, but are asking for Stephens to not harm anyone else and to turn himself in.
“Everybody is out there looking for Steve,” Williams said. “We have all of our partners in on this and we will look until we find him.”
Stephens is described as black, 6 feet, 1 inch tall, weighing 244 pounds and bald. 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.
