The police were on a manhunt after a man named Steve Stephens uploaded a video on Facebook killing a 74-year-old man namely Robert Godwin Sr. Everybody was making sense of the senseless death of the elder.
Godwin Sr. was a retired foundry worker and an aluminum can collector. He was just walking on his way home after an Easter dinner with his family before he was killed.

“He hugged my wife and me and said ‘I’ll see you guys next time.’… I said, ‘OK, enjoy your Easter.’”
“This man right here was a good man… I don’t know what I’m going to do. … It’s not real.”
“Please please please stop retweeting that video and report anyone who has posted it! That is my grandfather show some respect.”
In the video he uploaded on Facebook, he went out of a car and said,
“Here’s somebody I’m about to kill. I’m about to kill this guy right here. An old dude.”
The two talk briefly before Stephens pulled out a gun and fired Godwin Sr. on the head. Facebook removed the video later on.
According to his mother, he was just angry at a girlfriend.
He killed himself in a pursuit after being searched for days by the Police.
