Facebook live murder suspect Steve Stephens kills himself after pursuit

Facebook live murder suspect Steve Stephens kills himself after pursuit

Pennsylvania State Police say the manhunt for the alleged "Facebook Killer" Steve Stephens is over. The chase lasted 2 miles before Stephens shot himself in the head after the vehicle spun and came to a stop, police said. Williams added that police "wanted to bring him in safely" so they could talk to him to try to understand his motives.

Steve Stephens was accused of shooting Robert Godwin Sr, 74, on a Cleveland footpath on Sunday before fleeing in a auto and uploading a video of the murder to Facebook, becoming the subject of a nationwide manhunt.

The chilling video was on Facebook for three hours before it was taken down.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg says his thoughts are with the family of a retiree shot to death in an apparently random Cleveland attack that was recorded and posted on Facebook by a suspect who later killed himself in Pennsylvania. A police chase ensued for two miles until Stephens stopped. He said he "just snapped".

"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all".

Tonya R. Godwin-Baines and Debbie D. Godwin said they know Lane did nothing wrong and wanted her to know it.

Around 11am Tuesday, Stephens went through a McDonald's drive-thru in Erie, Pennsylvania, where an employee recognized him from television reports and called 911.

Facebook slaying suspect Steve Stephens was undone by a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and an order of fries.

Stephens replied that he could not wait and sped away from the scene.

And Stephens did not deserve the forgiveness they gave him.

"There's some safeguards that are apparently going to have to be installed in our social media that catches things like that, so you can't maybe post a live homicide, as it were". He offered his condolences and reiterated the company's position that it will review its "reporting flows" so that users can flag video and other content that violates its policies.

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world. Period", Cleveland's police chief said.

Mr Godwin did not seem to recognise the name.

Police later located him by a cellphone ping.
