"We are shocked and horrified like everyone else", said Nancy Kortemeyer.

Haymon learned of Stephens' death as she was planning funeral arrangements for her father.

A resident saw Stephens at a McDonald's parking lot and called in the tip, the state police said. Sunday afternoon in Cleveland.

Cleveland police are saying the video never should have been shared.
