Manhunt Continues for Suspect in Facebook Video Killing

Only Steve Knows: Police Baffled by Facebook Video Killing

After his suicide, Pennsylvania State Police recovered a.45-caliber Glock handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, in Stephens' auto, and, according to a law enforcement source, a.380-caliber pistol at the home of his ex-girlfriend, Joy Lane.

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

"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'm angry with him, yes, but I forgive him", Godwin-Baines told Lane.

The family of the so-called Facebook killer said Steve Stephens felt he should have been more successful in life and was upset over the recent end to a relationship. "We want to wrap our arms around him", Tonya Godwin-Baines told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Tuesday after Stephens' death. During their meeting, the daughters and Lane hugged each other and prayed. They last spoke on Saturday evening, Lane said, when he told her he was moving out of state and had quit his job. She said they remained friends after their breakup and she wanted to get him help for his gambling problem. "Because I know that he's a sick individual", Debbie said.

Maggie Green said of Lane: "It's not her fault".

Each one of us forgive the killer, the murderer.

"The thing that I would take away the most from my father is he taught us about God". He shot himself in the head after the auto spun and came to a stop, police said.

The three-day manhunt ended Tuesday after the killer stopped at a McDonald's in Harborcreek Township, Pennsylvania, 100 miles from the scene of the killing.

Stephens fled and Pennsylvania State Police troopers pursued, prompting an officer to ram the auto to disable it.

It was a McDonald's employee who called police after recognizing Stephens while at the drive-thru.

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

Godwin will be laid to rest Saturday, almost a week after he his last meal with his children.
