https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/17/us/steve-stephens-video-facebook-live.html

Apparently, a guy named Steve Stephens, 37 years old, uploaded a video to Facebook approaching a random bystander, an elderly man named Robert Godwin Sr., 74, and asked him to recite a name that was apparently his ex wife, before shooting him point blank. Before blaming it on his mother and his ex wife Joy Lane. This all happened in Cleveland, Ohio.

Mr. Stephens has worked at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency that serves children, since 2008, the agency said in a statement. He had been a vocational specialist since April 2015 and before that was a youth mentor.

He also claimed to have killed 15 people, but it appears the police do not have enough evidence or missing persons to connect him with.

Seriously, what the fuck?

Some guy was live streaming his own personal hunt for Steve but got stopped by the cops and had his gun confiscated. Kind of weird they have resources to spend on catching a larping 'vigilante' but still haven't caught this pos.

Agreed... totally messed up. I find it equally amazing that it took so long for the video to be reported:

For one hour and 45 minutes, a video showing Godwin's death remained live on Facebook until it was reported, Justin Osofsky, Facebook's vice president of global operations, said in a blog post Monday.
Come on people...

Facebook wasn't made aware of a live video containing Stephens' confession until after it had ended, Osofsky said. An initial video in which Stephens shares his intent to murder was never reported, according to Osofsky.
Geez.... There's now a $50,000 reward out for the guy. What a piece of crap.

It's probably because they were looking for the pos, that they got suspicious of the vigilante....

"Hey. That guy saw us and started acting all weired. Let's go check him out."

I am saddened, by what is shocking is that he apparently worked at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency that serves children, since 2008 and had been a vocational specialist since April 2015 and before that was a youth mentor.

I am sadden that someone working in such a field turned out to be so damn....what is the word.

Of course, nursing is considered an easier field to get a degree in from what I have heard, especially where you need pretty strong people to keep the patient in line. Not too sure about that particular institution or Stephen's position.

Additional security measures and manhunts do tend to do that, especially with Facebook surveillance being considered an option. Several school closed in a location because of unconfirmed sightings.

Glad I do not live in Ohio.

He has threaten to kill more people till he is caught or shot.

I already heard about it on the news hope they catch the scumbag. Lately there sure have been

a lot of live streams on facebook? rapes, bullying now this really a shame, people i guess want to be seen as famous
or show off!! but this is the wrong way to go about it seems at least to me facebook has given this kind of attention a
open book? example- {Hey look at me world look at what i can do?} this kind of shit going on.

Definitely frightening that he was youth mentor and worked in the health industry. Sad.

Im hoping that the police capture him alive so he can spend the rest of his miserable existence in prison. Im not sure if Ohio has the death penalty, but if they do. Kill him.

I called this that this would happen when I heard about it awhile ago when it first came out that people would use it to broadcast crimes. I am very surprised no one has sued Facebook yet to shut this and or them down. I assume after that rape video awhile ago someone would sue them its possible there are pending lawsuits and we just don't know about them. If I was a lawyer I would sue them for this. After reading his last post on cnn I am pretty sure this dude killed himself by now the fact that there is no recent sightings kind of proves it.

As much as I don't like the concept of Facebook I don't see how they are in the wrong or to blame for this people use things wrongly all the time even live TV messes up to stop someone doing something live you need to know they are going to do it before that's why live TV has a couple of seconds lag so they have that extra little time to stop anything horrible being shown and the resources and management required to watch every piece of video would be ridiculously tremendous.

The guy who did all this though isn't worth the time of day especially since the lack of remorse for the action and recording it proves it was attention and fear he was after. I am more shocked that the police were unable to find him as they saw pretty much everything...

Damn, since Stephen's accounts on social media are all shut down, it is impossible to tell pranksters from the real deal.

He uploaded the video of the killing itself, and live stream a later face to face meeting about his intentions to kill more people and his body count I believe.
