The manhunt is on for Steve Stephens, a man who posted a clip of himself killing an elderly man live on Facebook today. The Facebook account with the killing video has since been taken down, but NBC News reports they have archived them before that was able to happen. Another website, not only saved the graphic clips, but they have posted them for others to view.
People are also posting this video to their social media sites, so this disturbing clip it is still out there being viewed by the masses. The authorities are in high gear trying to hunt down this cold-blooded killer, who was driving in his car and pulled up to the curb near an elderly man walking along the sidewalk. Stephens got out of the car and shot this man with the same amount of emotion one would use to go grocery shopping.
According to NBC News Steve Stephens is considered armed and dangerous as police and the FBI embark on a manhunt after viewing these clips. Stephens killed this unidentified elderly man live on Facebook and he bragged about numerous other murders he had recently committed, which were as recent as today. So far, police have only found one victim, none of the others he has bragged about have been located.The homicide, which Stephens broadcast live on the social media site, occurred in northeast Cleveland near the shore of Lake Erie. Police also found a series of posts on Facebook coming from Stephens, who sounds like a very disturbed and disgruntled man.
Stephens claimed he had lost everything to “gambling” and he requested specific people by name to talk to. In one of his earlier posts he claimed that he “killed 12 people today,” then later on, in another post, that number jumped to 15, according to NBC News.
The website The Heavy has also downloaded the video, which is extremely graphic and disturbing. In the video you hear Stephens talking as he approaches an elderly man that is seen on the screen. Stephens asks the man if he knows a woman and then he names her by name. He also asks the man how old he is as he points the gun at the unsuspecting gentleman.
Before Stephens pulls the trigger he tells this elderly man that the reason this is happening to him is because of the woman, and he names her once more. The expression on the victim’s face turns to horror and he holds up a shopping bag as if to protect himself from what is about to happen. The gun goes off and the video shows this elderly man lying on a blood spattered sidewalk.
