This Easter Sunday (On April 16, 2017), a Cleveland, Ohio man identified as Steve Stephens, live streamed himself on Facebook killing a seemingly random elderly man on a street.
In the moments leading up to the murder, Steve Stephens, whose Facebook handle was Stevie Steve, says while driving in a car: “Found me somebody that I’m about to kill. This guy right here. This old dude.”
Stevie Steve then appears to pull over, walks up to an elderly man walking down the street, and tells him what is about to happen to him is because of Joy Lane. Apparently, Joy Lane was Steve’s ex-girlfriend.
He shoots the senior at close range in the head before returning to his car and driving off. The shooting reportedly took place on East 93rd Street, just south of the Interstate 90 in Glenville area of Cleveland.
Later today, Stevie Steve reportedly broadcast another Facebook Live video, in which he claimed to have killed other people too, and said on the phone that he snapped and “messed up.” He also said that he worked as a case manager at Beech Brook – a children’s mental health facility in Northeast Ohio. Steve’s Facebook page has meanwhile been deactivated.
