Facebook live murder suspect Steve Stephens kills himself after pursuit

Robert Godwin, 74, was killed Sunday while walking down the sidewalk on a Cleveland street.

Facebook said Stephens' account was suspended within 23 minutes of the murder video being reported, but admitted it needs to "do better". "Some even said he should have killed me". She's putting me at my pushing point...

Green, a former court clerk, was "dumbfounded" when she found out about the murder video a day later, and promptly called him. During their meeting, the daughters and Lane hugged each other and prayed. So we've talked before about people not living their lives on social media, and being truthful on social media, and not harming people via social media, and this is a prime example. 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".

"The hashtags Joy Lane, Joy Lane massacre, I don't know if I know how to be Joy Lane anymore", Lane told Fox 8 Cleveland. I've been called nearly every cuss word in the book.

Tammy Godwin offered a powerful and forgiving message for Stephens even though he left her family devasted, "we still don't hate you". Lane sent the sisters her condolences. But Stephens apparently told his mother on the phone that he had killed the man because he was "mad with his girlfriend".

She added that she is able to forgive him because of her faith in God. Lane last spoke to Stephens on Saturday night. He told her he had quit his job and was moving out of state. However, she said she still forgives him.

The statement goes on to say that work continues to fill in the gaps between the time of the Cleveland shooting Easter Sunday and the apparent suicide late Tuesday morning.

Facebook has also inadvertently hosted videos showing the torture of a young man with disabilities in Chicago, the musings of a serial killer being chased by police, child abuse and, now, murder.

One of Robert Godwin's sons said he was greatly disturbed by how the killer carried out his very bad deed.

Both the visitation and the funeral services are open to the public, Pastor Tony Williams said.
