Steve Stephens dead: 'We have closure'

Alexis Lee a childhood friend of Steve Stephens speaks with a neighbor near Stephens’ childhood home in Cleveland Ohio Monday

Steve Stephens' death marked a violent end to a almost 48-hour nationwide manhunt.

"At a little after 11, state police officers received information that Stephens' white vehicle was parked in a McDonald's auto park", said Williams.

As his vehicle was spinning out of control due to the maneuver, Stephens pulled out a pistol and shot himself in the head.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -The daughters of Robert Godwin Sr. and the estranged girlfriend of the man who killed him were brought together Tuesday for an emotional meeting on the same day as Facebook killer Steve Stephens' apparent suicide.

Police say 37-year-old Steve Stephens killed Robert Godwin in Cleveland, as the grandfather was walking home from an Easter meal. The initial video in which Stephens shares his intent to murder was never reported, according to Osofsky. The social media site later confirmed the video was "recorded and then uploaded to Facebook".

State police caught up to Stephens quickly and gave chase. He said he "just snapped".

Many questions - including a motive in the slaying - and details of Stephen's flight remain unanswered, Williams said.

"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all".

Mrs Wheeler said she heard sirens speeding past her "two seconds later" and described how police cars pursued the white Ford Fusion down the highway.

Restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr and a supervisor told him his fries were delayed, but he eventually drove off and was chased by police before he stopped and shot himself dead. There were no injuries to law enforcement or members of the public.

Lane said the last time she talked to Stephens was Saturday night and he told her he had quit his job and was moving out of state.

"We disabled the suspect's account within 23 minutes of receiving the first report about the murder video, and two hours after receiving a report of any kind", Osofsky wrote.

Cleveland's police chief said the video was not something that should "have been shared around the world".

Police said the woman he referred to was in a safe place. Godwin did not seem to recognize the name.
