A man from Cleveland, Ohio who claimed to have reached his breaking point, turned into a facebook maniac, when he shot and killed an elderly man and posted it on Facebook, then declared he killed a total of 13 people and is planning to kill more.
Steve Stephens, a manager employed to Beech Brook, a behavioural health agency that works primarily with children and families, according to a company spokesman, have said in his facebook live that he was killing people because of his fiance “Joy Lane” and his mother. the facebook maniac went on to banter, that he was with her for 3 years and they were planning to get married, but she just pushed him to his breaking point, and his mother doesn’t care as he went to talk to her. He also spoke of no one listening to him, he’s always there for people but no one is ever there for him.
Facebook said in a statement on Sunday that it co-operates fully with the authorities in incidents where there are “direct threats to physical safety.”
Responding to the reports involving Mr Stephens, the company said that it was “a horrific crime”, adding that it “does not allow this kind of content” on its site.
Cleveland police confirmed one killing but said on Monday morning that they did not know of any other victims.
Mr Williams said that “multiple forces” were looking for Mr Stephens, who “needs to turn himself in”.
The victim has been identified by Cleveland police as 74-year-old Robert Godwin.
The father of nine was shot and killed in a residential area of the city while walking home from Easter lunch, according to reports.
On Monday morning FBI Special Agent Stephen Anthony said they are “doing everything humanly possible” to find the suspect, but he added, “quite frankly, he could be in a lot of places”.
US Marshall Peter Elliot added that law enforcement agencies across the US will be assisting in the investigation, and will “make this individual’s world very, very, very small”.
He is thought to be driving a white Ford Fusion, but may have switched cars.
Police say the victim appeared to have been selected at random in what he described as a “senseless” murder.
He added that facebook maniac “clearly has a problem” and threatened to prosecute anyone who is aiding him.
