America's "Facebook Killer" Shoots Himself After Police Chase

America's

Maggie Green, who expressed her condolences to the Godwin family, said Wednesday that she believes Stephens' breakup with Lane triggered the killing.

Henry Sayers, the Erie restaurant's manager, tells reporters that Steve Stephens pulled up to the drive-thru Tuesday morning and ordered a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and french fries.

Stephens - who had broadcast the heinous murder of 74-year-old stranger Robert Goodwin on social media and claimed to have killed 13 more people - drove off after telling employees he "had to go". "We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened".

Stephens, who had attended an Easter Sunday service before the shooting, demanded Godwin repeat the name of his former girlfriend.


Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg issued a statement saying, "Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Robert Godwin Snr". The suspect then posted a video on the killing online with a confession. He said he "just snapped".

One of Godwin's daughters, Debbie, said she wished Stephens had been apprehended. "I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all".

Lane said her and Stephens were romantically involved for a while and had discussed getting married.

Police tracked his white Ford Fusion nearby before a two-mile pursuit that ended with Stephens shooting himself as state troopers rammed his vehicle to a standstill. After a brief auto chase ended in front of an abandoned school, the alleged gunman was pronounced dead at the scene due to an apparent suicide. Investigators are still baffled by Stephens' motives.

"We disabled the suspect's account within 23 minutes of receiving the first report about the murder video, and two hours after receiving a report of any kind". The company has since announced it is launching a review for reporting harmful content.
