A nationwide manhunt is  still underway for Stevie Stephens, the man who murdered a random man and posted the chilling video on Facebook. The family of the victim, a devout Christian, has publicly forgiven the killer as an expression of faith.

Last Sunday, Stephens posted a chilling video of him committing a murder. In the video, Stephens is seen driving up to 74-year-old Robert Godwin on a street in Cleveland, Ohio. Stephens pulled out a gun, and asked him, “Can you say Joy Lane?”

In an interview with CNN, the family forgave their father’s killer as an expression of the Christian faith they learned from their father.

“Each one of us forgives the killer, the murderer,” Godwin’s daughter, Tonya Godwin-Baines said Monday. “We want to wrap our arms around him.”
