Following the murder of Robert Godwin Sr., and the ongoing search for Stephens, Beech Brook terminated his employment, effective on April 17, 2017.
"Beech Brook conducts extensive background checks on all employees, including Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) record checks. Checks on Mr. Stephens did not reveal any criminal activity. While an employee, he received corrective action notes related to incomplete paperwork and missed appointments, but no disciplinary actions related to harassment, threats of violence or other misconduct."
The behavioral health agency reopened on Tuesday, April 18.
Stephens is described as being just over 6 feet tall, weighing about 244 pounds. He is bald with a full beard. The FBI is also assisting in the search.
Cleveland police confirmed to News 5 Monday that Stephens had a concealed carry permit.
Police say the suspect's vehicle is a white Ford Fusion with temporary tag E363630.
