Horrified cops in Cleveland ares still looking for psycho killer Steve Stephens — and the horrified girlfriend he blames for his murders is speaking out. The nation was shocked by Stephens' live video of him walking up to kill 78-year-old Robert Godwin. "Can you say 'Joy Lane'?" Stephens asked his puzzled victim, before declaring: "She's the reason all this is about to happen to you!" As the old man pleads, "I don't know nobody by that name," Stephens pulled the trigger and shot Godwin in the head — having declared his crime spree "The Easter Day Joy Lane Massacre!" But Joy's insisting that Stephens was a "nice guy!'
The horrified girlfriend was quickly contacted by police after Stephens posted the sickening video, and later said in a statement: “We had been in a relationship for several years. I am sorry that all of this has happened. My heart & prayers goes out to the family members of the victim[s]. Steve really is a nice guy…he is generous with everyone he knows. He was kind and loving to me and my children. This is a very difficult time for me and my family. Please respect our privacy at this time.”
Lane also rushed to Facebook to reassure her friends and family before suddenly deleting her account. A post saved by The National ENQUIRER reads: “This is the fastest way to update everybody. I am safe and with the police. I am Not okay…this is a lot. I can’t believe this is happening. I am very sad for everyone involved. I am praying for them and I am praying for Steve. He needs help.” Like her ex-boyfriend, Lane is also a counselor — and Stephens blames her as "the bitch" responsible for his crime spree!
"I’m killing motherf--kers, all because of this bitch," declared Stephen. "She’s putting me at my pushing point..Here I am, massacring motherf--kers. Today is the Easter Day Joy Lane Massacre!” Stephens remains on the run — with police saying that they believe the 6'1", 244-lb. killer fled Cleveland in his white Ford Fusion. He's boasted that he's looking for more victims: "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--k no more!"
