This incidence happened in Cleveland, Ohio when a suspect aged around 37 years old killed a elderly man named Robert Godwin Snr on the street while broadcasting the killing live on Facebook.
The man said in the video that “I found somebody I’m about to kill” and went in his ford car, which was having a temporary number plate.
While the video was live streaming he said that “I’m about to kill this guy right here. He’s an old dude,”. The suspect even asked the person age before killing him. The suspect killed the elderly man because he was upset with his ex-girlfriend.
The suspect is known to be Steve Stephens and it is believed that he may be behind killing many other people. The police is still hunting for the suspect.
The suspects Facebook profile has been blocked and the video has been removed from the system. The live Facebook allows the user to post live videos but this bring a question that how to stop these incidence to be posted live and which exposes unknown people to horrific acts.
