Hours after the video of a gruesome murder of an elderly man was published to Facebook, the Cleveland Police department issued a high bond request against Steve Stephens.
Stephens posted a video of him gunning down Robert Godwin Sr. at random April 16 after making him say the name of his girlfriend, Joy Lane.
The reason listed in the request said that “Steve W. Stephens did knowingly approach Robert Godwin St., who was unknown to him and simply walking down the street collecting can.” It continued to say that Stephens asked Godwin to repeat the name “Joy Lane” before firing a single shot at point-blank range and killing him.
Stephens has officially been charged by police with aggravated murder, but is still on the run.
To read the full arrest warrant, look below:
Stephens is to be considered armed and extremely dangerous. Cleveland police — along with multiple other agencies — are undergoing a massive manhunt which spans through multiple surrounding states, including Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan. Police are searching for a white Ford Fusion with temporary Ohio tag number E363630. Police issued a photo of the vehicle they are in pursuit of on Twitter.
At a press conference Monday morning, authorities said they still are unaware where Stephens is hiding and are using all available resources to locate him.
