Cleveland police announced $50,000 reward has been posted by Crimestoppers Monday for information leading to the capture of the man suspected of killing a random passerby and posting the gruesome footage on Facebook Sunday.
Police have issued a nationwide search for Steve Stephens, 37, and asked residents of Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, and Michigan to be on alert.
Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said officers searched dozens of locations for Stephens with no success. The department is working with federal, state and other local agencies to find him.
“As far as we know right now, we don’t know where he’s at,” Williams said at a Monday morning news conference. “The last location we had him at was the homicide.”
Williams also urged Stephens to turn himself in or contact a friend, relative, or clergy.
