After the tragic shooting of 74-year-old Robert Godwin, Cleveland police, the FBI and authorities in four other states have been on the hunt for 37-year-old Steve Stephens. Before posting a video of the killing, Stevens ranted about how his ex-girlfriend Joy Lane is to blame for his actions. 

  1. Stephens' video alleged Lane did not call him, which sent him over the edge into a fit of rage. After the killing of Godwin, Lane kept silent and away from press.

    However, she recently spoke out and sent a text message to CBS News about the killing and how she's feeling. 

  2. From CBS News

    "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."

  3. People on Twitter have stood up for Lane and asked that no one blame her
