The search for the man who committed a murder while broadcasting it on Facebook Live has now been expanded nationwide.

Police said Stephens killed Robert Godwin Sr., a 74-year-old former foundry worker, on Sunday.

Officers have searched dozens of places around the city, said Chief Calvin Williams, who warned residents to be careful as they go about their day. "He could be nearby".

In another video posted to Facebook, Stephens said that he gambled away everything and that he and his girlfriend had planned to marry but didn't, without saying why.

In a message on Facebook, he called Ms Lane, who is now in police protective custody, "the love of my life". Williams said the family is in the process of setting up an official GoFundMe page that will be released later Monday through the police department.

There have been similar alleged sightings of Stephens or his vehicle in Pennsylvania, including in Erie and Philadelphia. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Debbie Godwin, the victim's daughter, told Cleveland.com that she and her family are still reeling from her father's killing.

That suspect, Steve Stephens, is wanted for the murder of a man in Cleveland that was recorded on video and posted to Facebook. Godwin did not seem to recognize the woman's name. Godwin can be seen shielding his face with the shopping bag.

On Facebook, he posted claims that he killed up to 15 people, though Cleveland police have said they found no evidence of any other victims. Social media giants Facebook and Twitter, along with video sharing site YouTube, rushed to quickly remove video footage of the sickening shooting.

In the video showing the shooting of Godwin, a man resembling Stephens exits his auto, saying, "I found somebody I'm about to kill".

The FBI has also posted Stephens' photo on billboards in OH and surrounding states.

"This is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on Facebook", the company said in a statement.

"We are shocked. We learned about the incident via Facebook". "To be honest, we have interviewed several people involved in this and I don't think there is any rhyme or reason for it happening".

"We were about to eat dinner, I spent my last couple hours with him".

"They're asking people to not contribute to any do any GoFundMe or any memorial or any account right now in Mr. Godwin's name", he said.

Stephens had worked since 2008 as a vocational specialist and youth mentor at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency located outside Cleveland.
