Facebook killer takes his own life as police close in

Facebook murder suspect Steve Stephens' run from justice ended because of a chicken nuggets and fries takeaway, it has emerged.

The US man wanted for killing an elderly man in OH and then posting a video of the murder on Facebook fatally shot himself on Tuesday after a brief pursuit in neighbouring Pennsylvania, police said. "After a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself", Pennsylvania State Police said on Twitter.

Those beliefs were confirmed Tuesday around 11:10 a.m., when Pennsylvania State Police spotted Stephens' vehicle and attempted to pull him over.

Mr Stephens, 37, had been on the run for almost 48 hours after filming himself walking up to and shooting dead Robert Godwin, 74 in Cleveland, Ohio. Facebook officials said they removed the video 23 minutes after learning of it.

Cleveland police detectives spoke with Stephens via cell phone after the killing and tried to persuade him to surrender.

A short time after his stop-off police were giving chase - and before long Stephens was dead.

Lane said she's devastated that the victim said her name before he was shot.

The hunt for Stephens, a job counselor who worked with teens, which began after the shooting in Cleveland's Glenville neighborhood on Monday. We would like to have brought Stephens in peacefully and talked to him about why this happened, ' said police chief Calvin Williams.

"Investigators said that Godwin was the only victim so far linked to Stephens, despite his claim on Facebook that he killed over a dozen people".

According to WKYC's Chris Tye, the manager called Pennsylvania State Police and that Stephens was there. "He was a little nerved up, a little agitated and didn't want to wait, said he had to go".

"Facebook in essence if they don't come up with something because we've seen this over and over again now, if they don't come up with some sort of emergency button like we've suggested that they come up with, a sort of 911 situation, then they're complicit in this kind of behavior". Godwin did not seem to recognize the name. Williams said Steve Stephens, who randomly killed a Cleveland retiree and posted video of the crime on Face.

"I don't know how to pick up all the pieces of my world at the moment", Joy Lane told WJW, a Fox station in Cleveland, on Tuesday.

A $50,000 reward was offered in this case, and many people are urging authorities to give the money to the McDonald's employee.
