'Facebook killer' Steve Stephens found dead after auto chase

Search For Facebook Killer Continues

VIDEO: "Officials at scene of Steve Stephens" auto Facebook said it removed the video of the shooting 23 minutes after learning of it.

Before the vehicle chase, however, Stephens stopped at a McDonald's drive-thru and ordered 20 Chicken McNuggets and large fries for $5.35, the restaurant's manager, Henry Sayers, told The New York Times.

Restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr. tells the Erie Times-News that workers tried to "buy some time for the cops" and told Stephens his order of fries was delayed.

Citizens and police in Erie had been on high alert after a ping from Stephens' cell phone was detected there Sunday.

State troopers responded to a sighting Stephen's Ford Fusion in the parking lot of a McDonalds' in Erie at 11 a.m.

The man suspected of killing a Cleveland retiree and posting the act on Facebook shot and killed himself after a brief pursuit, Pennsylvania State Police said Tuesday. Stephens fled with officers in pursuit.

On Sunday afternoon, 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. was shot and killed in Cleveland while walking home from Easter dinner with his family.

A man who identified himself as "Stevie Steve" in a video on Facebook.

Facebook said Stephens' account was suspended within 23 minutes of the murder video being reported, but admitted it needs to "do better".

Local media said an employee at the restaurant's drive-through window called police. She said the chase slowed suddenly from 50 miles per hour to about 20 miles per hour when the road narrowed from four lanes to two.

State police Major William Teper Jr. said the trooper who bumped Stephens' vehicle "saw him pull the gun out and shoot himself". In the video, Stephens told his victim to say the name of his girlfriend, saying, "She's the reason why this is about to happen to you".

"Mr. Stephens, we forgive you, but we're asking you to turn yourself in", said one of Godwin's daughters. She said even after they parted she was still trying to get him to reach out for help with a gambling habit. The agency says that "every suicide is a tragedy" but that Stephens' death eliminates the community's fear that he might kill again.

Sources tell WKYC's Monica Robins that the person who gave the tip that led to his location will receive the $50,000 reward.

The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years".
