McDonald's applauds crew members who recognized man wanted in Facebook video killing

Facebook live murder suspect Steve Stephens kills himself after pursuit

Facebook live murder suspect Steve Stephens kills himself after pursuit

Two days after Steve Stephens shot and killed a man in cold blood, he pulled up to a McDonald's drive-thru window in Harborcreek Township in Erie County, Pennsylvania, and ordered a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets.

But Stephens did not wait, he said.

"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens told the elderly father of nine in the video. He then shot him, forever linking Lane and the victim's family. There was reportedly no finger pointing or blame, just mutual grief over the ordeal.

During the meeting, the three women shared their pain, the affiliate reported, each affected differently by a killing that stunned the nation. They last spoke on Saturday evening, Lane said, when he told her he was moving out of state and had quit his job.

"I am pretty sure he figured out that we were on to him", said DuCharme Jr.

"[The employee] said, 'I think that's the guy. If you did it, you have to face your crime", she said. "And that's been hard", Lane said.

Pennsylvania State Police said that Stephens was known to gamble at the Presque Isle Casino in Erie, Pennsylvania and were on alert watching for the possibility that he showed up in that city.

Nicknamed the Facebook Killer for his role in ending the life of a Cleveland man and posting the shooting to Facebook, Stephens life ended when he was stopped by police on Buffalo Road near Downing Avenue.

In an interview with CNN, several of Godwin's children said they held no animosity toward Stephens, either.

"Each one of us forgives the killer". How to love God.

In fact, Lane met with sisters Tonya R. Godwin-Baines and Debbie D. Godwin Tuesday morning, tearfully hugging and praying together. "He was definitely one in a million".

DuCharme said a supervisor went to the window and tried to stall Stephens by telling him that his order of fries would need more time to cook.

A total of four state police cruisers were part of the two-mile-long chase. He shot himself in the head as the auto spun out of control, police said.

Authorities had hoped for a different outcome.

In a blog post, Vice President of Global Operations Justin Osofsky wrote: "we know we need to do better".

It is not thought Mr Godwin knew Stephens beforehand. "I wish it had gone down like that instead of him shooting himself".
