Following the incident, Stephen’s Facebook posts were taken down after it was there for three hours.

We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook, and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety.” While police still have no clue where the criminal is hiding, recent reports say that he used to lure women and kept a pet snake.
