Cleveland: A 74-year old man with nine children and more than a dozen grandkids was killed in broad day light in Cleveland. The many who was walking on the road was apparently killed without any reason and that it was a cold blooded murder.
The worst part of the macabre killing was the fact that the entire killing was live streamed through Facebook live and that the video remained live for hours, till the officials were able to find it and remove it.
FBI officials were aghast following the bizarre murder and in which it was carried out. Before pulling the trigger, the bearded man announced on Facebook Live, “I found somebody I’m about to kill”. The man said in the video, as he pulled his Ford Fusion to the side of a road in east Cleveland about 2 p.m. Sunday. “I’m about to kill this guy right here. He’s an old dude,” the man said as he confronted Robert Godwin Sr., 74, who was walking on the sidewalk.
After getting out of his car, the accused asked the old man, “Can you do me a favor?” the man asked Godwin before asking that he say the name of a woman. “She’s the reason this is about to happen to you.” The shooter — whom police suspect is Steve Stephens, 37 — then asked Godwin’s age before killing him. The interaction lasted less than a minute. The two men did not know each other, police said.
If the man was in an inebriated condition, it didn’t show him on his face or the calculated way he carried out the entire murder. If he has really murdered as many people as he claimed, he is a habitual criminal and instead of driving a car he should have been behind high prison wall a long time ago.
In the meantime, it appears that the murderer had actually not live streamed the murder on Facebook Live. Instead he first recorded the cold-blooded murder and later posted it on Facebook, the biggest social networking site with more than 1.5 billion users across the world.
Latest reports suggest that several parts of city of Cleveland are currently under lockdown as police search for Steve Stephens, known as “Stevie Steve” on social media. Cleveland police spokesperson Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said that the shooting happened on East 93rd Street just south of Interstate 90. A GoFundMe account to help Godwin’s family has been set up here.
