Manhunt Continues for Suspect in Facebook Video Killing

Only Steve Knows: Police Baffled by Facebook Video Killing

"After a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself", the police said on Twitter, providing no further details.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has said the social network "has a lot of work to do" in order to prevent repeats of the Cleveland shooting of Robert Godwin Sr, after a video of his murder was shared on the site.

Employees at a McDonald's restaurant in the state spotted confessed killer Steve Stephens, 37, in their drive-thru and called police.

A five-state manhunt was launched to find Stephens after the children's mental health worker vowed to "keep killing until they (police) catch me". The suspect then posted a video on the killing online with a confession. He said he "just snapped".

One of Godwin's daughters, Debbie Godwin, said she wished Stephens had been captured.

State police Major William Teper Jr. said the trooper who bumped Stephens' vehicle "saw him pull the gun out and shoot himself".

Byes said the whole situation was scary and that she's glad it has come to an end, for the sake of her community and everyone involved in the case.


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

"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".

Facebook announced on Monday that the company would be reviewing its policies after the incident.

Stephens demanded Godwin repeat the name of his former girlfriend.

State police are testing the gun and will hand it over to Cleveland investigators, state police said. Godwin did not seem to recognize the name.

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.

Detectives spoke with the suspect on Sunday by cellphone and tried to persuade him to surrender, police said. Within a day, authorities expanded the search nationwide and offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to his capture.
