The grandson of the man whose killer posted his death on Facebook is urging social media users to refrain from sharing the footage.

Ryan Godwin, grandson of Cleveland, Ohio resident Robert Godwin Sr., the 74-year-old victim, tweeted Monday:

Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking for Steve Stephens, who filmed himself on Easter Sunday killing Godwin.

The message has been retweeted almost 29,000 times.

The video of Godwin being killed remained on Facebook for around three hours before Facebook removed it. It was recorded, then uploaded, according to Cleveland.com.

The victim was a father of 10 and grandfather of 14, his son Robert Godwin Jr. told Cleveland.com.
