On Monday 74-year-old Robert Godwin was viciously murdered on Livestream by serial killer Steve Stephens. Now details of his personal life are being unveiled.
Robert had a baby's mother who was just 34 years old. And according to the Daily Mail, they dated for 18 years. If you do the quick math that means that Robert started dating her when he was 56 and she was just 16 years old. The age of consent in Ohio is 16 - so he wasn't doing anything illegal.
Here is what is being reported on the Daily Mail:
The young woman who had two children with slain senior citizen Robert Godwin has revealed her lover's last words to her, minutes before he was murdered.
Wiping away tears, Angela Smith, 34, said the 74 year old had promised to be back quickly after a brief pursuit collecting empty soda cans, a hobby he held for years after retiring in 2011.
"He said 'I love you girl' as he left. He always said that. He was looking forward to the lunch I was cooking . . ."
Mr. Godwin, was killed close to the house she shares with their children. Smith said, "My Baby-daddy had money in the bank. He was driving a 2016 [car]. It wasn't about selling the cans, it was his hobby.
"Whenever we went to the grocery store, he'd be checking for cans. This was nothing out of the ordinary for him. He didn't need no money.
"He had nothing to do at the weekend and sometimes he would take his kids."
She said their children, who were borne out of an 18-year relationship, were devastated by their father's death, but could not fathom why he had been gunned down. . .
The children are aged 11 and 8 and have been given a simple explanation, for now, she said. . . .
She said Mr. Godwin had been the love of her life and that she had met him as a teenager.
