Family of Facebook murder victim: We forgive the killer

Family of Facebook murder victim: We forgive the killer

Police would not speculate on what was behind the killing, but in the video and other footage he posted, Stephens talked about losing everything he had to gambling and having trouble with his girlfriend.

Stephens worked at Beech Brook, an agency in suburban Cleveland that deals with vulnerable young people. As his auto was spinning out of control, he shot himself in the head with a pistol, police said.

That sparked what started as a five-state manhunt that included NY and soon became a nationwide search for Stephens, who was a vocational specialist who worked with youth and young adults.

In another video, he said that he had killed multiple people, but police said there was only one known victim.

The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens' auto was in a McDonald's parking lot, Willlams said.


A medium-speed chase between Cleveland Facebook killer Steve Stephens and Pennsylvania State police ended Tuesday after a trooper hit the back of Stephens' vehicle, causing it to spin out of control.

It was late Tuesday morning, nearly lunchtime, and authorities were in the third day of an intensive manhunt for Stephens.

The employee took Stephens' order and immediately dialled 911 to alert the authorities of his whereabouts.

"We told him his fries were going to be a minute", Henry Sayers, the manager of the Erie County restaurant, told the Times-News. After a worker recognized Stephens, the restaurant staff tried to stall him by holding on to his fries while calling the police. He took his McNuggets and whipped out of the parking lot, almost hitting Gail Wheeler, 54, a retail operations manager from Erie who was on her way home from the grocery store.

Wheeler followed behind for a couple miles. A pursuing trooper's auto slid into Stephens' vehicle, but the officer was not injured. The Ford Fusion did a half-turn and came to rest at the curb.Police were starting to get out of their cruisers when "I heard a shot. It was loud and distinctive", Wheeler said.

In a blog post, Vice President of Global Operations Justin Osofsky wrote: "we know we need to do better". The one officer just shook his head.
