According to NBC, the suspect is said to have broadcast the killing on Facebook Live and even bragged about murdering more innocent victims in the video. Students at Cleveland State University have been advised to find shelter and stay indoors as a precaution since the suspect Steve Stephens is still at large.


One disturbing part in the video was when Stephens was running crazy on a killing spree saying, “Like I said I killed 13, so I’m working on 14 now as we speak,” he says while driving in an eerily calm voice. “I’m just running around hitting people, man. I just snatch.”


The suspect has also made it clear that he will not stop the “Easter Day slaughter” until he’s caught. It’s gathered that while there is no clear motive for the killings, Steve Stephens appears to have blamed the shootings on a woman, Joy Lane, and wrote on Facebook that he lost all his money gambling at casinos over the past year. He wrote in the caption of a photo with her, “three years I spent with this bitch … I wish we never met.” She has already been taken into protective custody by police.

Also, in the video showing him shoot an elderly man, Stephens asks him to say his ex-girlfriend’s name, Joy Lane, before shooting him.


“She’s the reason this is about to happen to you,”

He said in the video that Lane “drove him crazy.” They were supposed to be married. The suspect also says in the video “we are all human and we all have breaking points.”

According to what Steve Stephens said in the video, he went to talk to his mother, but she didn’t care when he told her he was feeling suicidal and homicidal. He said he blames her for driving him to kill along with his ex-girlfriend.

“Didn’t care, it don’t matter, people would come to me with their problems, I would deal with my problems everyday,” Stephens says. “But when it comes to my problems, nobody gives a f*ck. It’s like I’m always the bad guy, no matter what the f*ck I do, people always making it out on me…. Innocent people about to die today. Hopefully I’m going to try and kill as many people as I can and be on death row or whatever the case may be. I just don’t give a f*ck no more. I’m beat, I’m tired, you know.”

In a video, Stephens tells the camera, “I’m 37 and all my f*cking life I’ve just always been a f*cking monster, man. Always had to prove myself, always had to take the butts of people’s jokes.”

“I’m killing motherf*ckrs, all because of this bitch… She’s putting me at my pushing point,” he says. “I was living over there with her, I woke up Friday and I just couldn’t take it anymore, I just left. Here I am, massacring motherf*ckers. Today is the Easter Day (girlfriend’s name) massacre.”

In another post he wrote, “tell Jim I’m calling off tomorrow.”
