Videos show desperation of suspect in Facebook video killing

Suspect in Facebook video murder kills self in Pennsylvania, police say

Police say 37-year-old Steve Stephens killed Robert Godwin in Cleveland, as the grandfather was walking home from an Easter meal.

Taking the stage one hour after suspect Steve Stephens apparently shot and killed himself in Pennsylvania, the Facebook CEO told the crowd of developers, analysts, and reporters that Facebook has more work to do in making its 1.86 billion strong community safer.

Stephens later posted the video of him shooting and killing Godwin on Facebook.

"Two seconds later, I hear these sirens, and they come whipping past me", she told The Associated Press. Some activists have claimed Facebook has unfairly removed evidence of police violence against residents, while others are upset that it took the site so long to take down a video clearly showing a violent crime. In the video the suspect approaches Mr Godwin and asks him to say the name of a woman believed to be the gunman's former girlfriend, before shooting him in the head.

The murderer's mother Maggie Green said her son attempted to visit her one day before killing Godwin to say goodbye, possibly foreshadowing his suicide. And after a short chase, they tried a maneuver to stop his auto, and he shot himself as his vehicle spun out. "In it, he said, 'I snapped, I just snapped.'", reported AP on Tuesday.

Facebook took down the video, as well as others he posted, and disabled his account within a few hours.

"[The employee] said, 'I think that's the guy". It was about 100 miles from Cleveland, where he fatally shot a stranger, 74-year-old Robert Godwin, Sr, in the street in broad daylight on Sunday. She says: "If you did it, you have to face your crime".

On Monday evening, Facebook announced that it was launching a review for reporting harmful content following the killing. Two cars were in front of his, and police were on the way by the time Stephens reached the pickup window.

The FBI joined state authorities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, and NY in the search for Stephens, offering a reward of $50,000 for information leading to the suspect's apprehension.
