Steve Stephens, also known as the “Facebook Killer” has been reported dead after committing suicide during arrest.
Stephens gained the name “The Facebook Killer” after he proceeded to pull the trigger and ending a life, live on Facebook. Apparently his victims are random and all recorded as he laughs, mentioning his ex-girlfriend for being the reasons for their deaths.
Although his Facebook was soon deactivated shortly following his first “killing video” the videos managed to get shared throughout the internet at rapid speed. Steve Stephens asked the stranger to repeat his ex girlfriend’s name out loud, and as he spoke the name is when the trigger was pulled.
The killings did not stop there. He admitted on the phone to have murdered 13 people and he was not going to stop. He was begging to be caught. He states that he “snapped” and no one “took his problems seriously.”
Fortunately, Stephens was caught today, while ordering a meal at McDonalds. Authorities approached him cautiously, but they could not stop him before he proceeded to kill himself.
Thankfully, this rampage of murders has come to an end. What has not come to an end is the grief his ex girlfriend is receiving from the public. She is being attacked, being told that this is her fault and accused of harming him, mentally. Whether or not she was a poor girlfriend while they are together she was not personally involved in any of the killings.
Just when you thought humanity was lost…
Don’t give up on humans just yet! With all of the hate and discrimination going on in the world it is heart warming to hear of someone looking out for the disabled.
Annalicia Herrerra, a blind Ohio resident, has been out to multiple restaurants throughout her life but has never seen a menu. Think about that. How do you know what you’re options are? Just one of the little things that we, as unimpaired citizens, may never think twice about. Annalicia is an 18 year old who, for the first time ever, was handed a menu in braille while dining, for her birthday, at Red Robin.
Annalicia’s younger sister, Alyssa told the Huffington Post that her sister always orders chicken fingers and fries because they are (almost) always available at all restaurants. But this time was different. Miss Herrerra got to enjoy a chicken teriyaki burger and claimed it was the best thing she has ever eaten!!
Happy Birthday, Annalicia!! And a huge thank you to Red Robin for having such an open mind, we can only hope one day every restaurant will have such amenities available.

The story follows her family and friends over the course of three days as they help Nina plan her future. Tommy, which has music based on The Who’s album “Tommy”, tells the exhilarating story of hope, healing, and spirit of a young disabled boy who triumphs over his hardships.
