“An Ohio man claimed to be angry at a woman when he shot and killed an elderly passerby Sunday afternoon and posted the murder on Facebook. Police urged the suspect to turn himself in, but he remained on the loose into the night.

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as Steve Stephens, and Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said officers were searching for him in the Cleveland area and beyond.

The victim was identified as 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr.

In a statement Sunday night, Facebook said the suspect did go live on the social media site at one point during the day, but not during the killing. Police earlier Sunday had said that Stephens had broadcast it on Facebook Live.”

  1. Doesn't matter much if you're not in Ohio. Plus if you're smart enough to watch TYT how are you not smart enough to just use google to look him or the video up?

  2. Didn't you post the name and face of a white supremicist a few weeks ago?

    Why are you deciding to not post the name of an active killer in this case?

  3. Is Twitter than responsible for the tweets of Donald Trump on North Korea, possibly creating a nuclear war? i don't think so. Believe me i hate fakebook but fair is fair.

  4. What are you saying stupid Facebook doesn't have billions of dollars. 3 hours is absolutely unacceptable live,or not. too many people seen that video,and you Absolutely know it,and yes of course Facebook is culpable.
