Police hunting the man suspected of killing an elderly passerby at random and posting the gruesome footage of the murder on Facebook said they don’t know where Steve Stephens is, but they vowed to continue the desperate search “until he’s in custody.”
“As far as we know right now, we don’t know where he’s at,” Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said at a Monday morning news conference. “The last location we had him at was the homicide.”
“At this point he could be a lot of places,” said Steve Anthony, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Cleveland division. “He could be nearby, he could be far away or anywhere in-between.”
Williams said detectives had spoken with Stephens via cellphone at one point, but hadn’t made any other contact with him.
“Early in this investigation we did have contact with him, direct contact with our detectives,” Williams said. “They tried to convince him to turn himself in.”
