Videos show desperation of suspect in Facebook video killing

Cleveland Facebook Killing: What we know now Videos show desperation of suspect in Facebook video killing

Instead, Stephens shot and killed himself.

Williams says investigators had hoped to talk with Stephens to find out a motive.

In a second video, the suspect was seen boasting about having committed a number of further murders: "I killed 13, so I'm working on 14 as we speak", Stephens said in that video, prompting authorities to widen the manhunt to beyond the state limits of Ohio. A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his capture and prosecution. Police expanded their search beyond state lines with belief that Stephens may have left Ohio.

"We urge everyone to remain vigilant at all times, but we have no indications that the Cleveland murder suspect is in or headed to the Baltimore area", Smith said.

(Facebook via AP). This Sunday, April 16, 2017 frame from video posted on Facebook shows Robert Godwin Sr.in Cleveland moments before being fatally shot. A few minutes after that, he went live and confessed, Facebook said.

In his broadcast of the killing, Stevens can be heard asking Godwin to repeat the name of the former girlfriend.

On Monday evening, Facebook announced that it was launching a review for reporting harmful content following the killing. The behavioral health agency where he worked said an extensive background check before he was hired turned up nothing worrisome.

"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", he says.

The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years". The shooting video was visible on Facebook for almost two hours before it was reported, the company said. "I am sorry that all of this has happened".

"At approximately, a little after 11 a.m. today, Pennsylvania State Police officers received a tip that the vehicle that we were looking for, a white Ford Fusion was in a McDonald's parking lot in Erie, Pa.", Williams said.

Stephens is believed to have videotaped his actions and published it on Facebook, along with another video threatening to kill others and claiming he had already killed 13 people.

Authorities continued their search Monday for a Cleveland man accused of randomly shooting and killing an elderly man on Easter Sunday.

Tammy Godwin wanted to make sure her father's killer knew just what was taken from them - a good man who was the rock of his family.
