McDonald's applauds crew members who recognized man wanted in Facebook video killing

McDonald's applauds crew members who recognized man wanted in Facebook video killing

The worker, who recognized Stephens as the wanted Cleveland Facebook killer, is credited with stalling him at the drive-thru window Tuesday so authorities could have extra response time.

The mother of Steve Stephens, who posted a video of him killing an elderly man, said her son had "snapped and turned into a whole different person".

"That is not my son", Maggie Green said Wednesday about the so-called Facebook killer. He shot and killed himself in Pennsylvania following a short police pursuit, bringing a three-day manhunt to a close, authorities said. Godwin was walking down a Cleveland, Ohio, street when Stephens gunned him down, then posted a video of the shooting on Facebook.

Stephens demanded Godwin repeat the name of his former girlfriend. "I guess he wanted to be caught".

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

Green said he gave his brother money for gas and food when the latter went bust gambling in February.

The mother, who expressed her condolences to the Godwin family, said Wednesday she believes Stephens' breakup with Joy Lane triggered the killing.

But Godwin-Baines said her father instilled within his children the value of forgiveness.

"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.

"(Our parents) didn't talk it, they lived it. People would do things to us and we would say "Dad are you really going to forgive them, really?' and he would say 'Yes, we have to", Godwin-Baines said. "And that's been hard", Lane said.

The Godwin sisters told Lane that none of this was her fault and that they don't hold any animosity for her. "It's not my fault".
