    Search for suspect in Facebook homicide video now spans nationwide

    Updated 4:57 PM ET, Mon April 17, 2017

    Cleveland (CNN)A man who allegedly killed an elderly father after he had enjoyed an Easter meal with his children -- then posted a video of the killing on Facebook -- is now the subject of a nationwide manhunt, Cleveland police said Monday.

    Suspect Steve Stephens, 37, stands charged with Sunday's aggravated murder of 74-year-old Robert Godwin, and Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said law enforcement nationwide are on high alert.

    "This is what we would consider a national search for Steve," Williams told reporters Monday afternoon. "So, we are not going to leave any stone unturned."

    The suspect's mother said that when she last saw Stephens on Saturday, he said it would be a miracle if she ever saw him again.

    They spoke the next day, she said, and he told her he was shooting people because he was angry with his girlfriend.

    Appearing alongside a US marshal and an FBI agent, Williams said investigators have searched dozens of locations, "to no avail," and that one of his detectives had spoken to Stephens via cellphone after the killing. He did not elaborate on the call, other than to say the detective attempted to persuade Stephens to surrender.

    "We're still asking Steve to turn himself in, but if he doesn't, we'll find him," the chief said. "We're not going to stop until we find him."

    He warned any of Stephens' friends or family members who might assist him while he's on the lam: "If you think you're helping Steve, you're really not. You're going to get yourself in trouble."

    From the PC this morning.


    Cleveland police chief: we've received tips from as far away as Texas in search for Facebook shooting suspect; no confirmed sightings


    #SteveStephens - Officials: We are going to follow up on every single lead.



    The public is our greatest force multiplier, if you see this man call 911. A $50,000 reward has been announced by Cleveland officials.


    "These things can take 2 days; they can take 2 weeks; they can take 2 years," says @CLEpolice chief on search


    .@CLEpolice “That vehicle is not equipped with [GPS or locating] systems” “We have received more than 400 tips"


    Police: To date confident there are no additional victims


    Authorities: Stephens may be receiving help from someone. Not sure he is still alive.


    Authorities: Border patrol has been notified of Stephens, but still possible he has left the country

    .@PAStatePolice tried to disable Steve Stephens' car after a two mile pursuit in Erie. Car spun out of control before Stephens' suicide


    PA State Police say that while pursuing FB Killer Steven Stephens they attempted a PIT maneuver. As Stephens was spinning he shot himself.


    Police say the break in the case came when they received a tip that Stephens' car was in a McDonald's parking lot.

    wow, I wonder if he really meant to shoot himself, or if it was an accidental discharge while the car was spinning?

    Robert Godwin's family in court battle over his estate

    June 23, 2017


    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

    The mother of Robert Godwin’s youngest children tell Cleveland 19 an ongoing court battle with Godwin’s older children has made the grieving process harder. Godwin was randomly shot and killed, and the video of the murder was uploaded to Facebook by Steve Stephens, on Easter Sunday.

    Godwin left behind ten children, and assets of about $500, probate court documents state. The court battle currently will decide who administers Godwin’s estate, which includes the listed assets, and also “a potential civil claim.” Cleveland 19 has learned there may be potential future litigation against Facebook, and/or the estate of Steve Stephens.

    Eight of Godwin’s children have agreed to allow Robert Godwin’s daughter Debbie Godwin to administer the estate. The mother of his two youngest children, Angela Small, is objecting to her appointment. Debbie Godwin reached out to Cleveland 19 and said that their side of the family had no desire to speak with the press about the ongoing court issue, and did not want to litigate the issue in the media.

    Small said the battle is about more than just money, it’s about her sons’ rights.

    She explained that her sons by Godwin, 8-year-old Marsean and 11-year-old Terrell, have had a difficult time emotionally since their father was murdered.

    “When my kids tell me they what to be with their father they don't want to live any more they want to be with their father and that hurts me so bad because I can't do nothing I can't fix them,” said Small.

    She said the boys have had nightmares, and she’s had to sleep with them since his murder.

    “My oldest, Terrell, he feel like he don't even want to be here no more because his father’s not here, cause they were so close like they're hurting bad and I'm trying to take the role on as mother and father,” said Small.

    She said the battle over Godwin’s estate is making the grieving process harder for her and her children.

    “[Robert Godwin] was my best friend my everything,” said Small. “It's so much stuff that my kids are going through emotionally and I'm being strong for them because call they have is me.”
