Suspect in Facebook video killing shoots himself to death

Stephens, who had no prior criminal record, was not suspected in any other killings, Cleveland officials had said.

WKYC's Jasmine Monroe met with Godwin's family Tuesday afternoon to discuss the news of Stephens' death.

Pennsylvania State Police said Tuesday that Stephens, 37, fatally shot himself following a nationwide manhunt.

Williams said Pennsylvania state police received a tip shortly after 11 a.m. (1500GMT) that the vehicle Stephens was using had been found at a McDonald's parking lot near Erie County. It was a short pursuit.

Police Chief Calvin Williams says anyone who thinks they've seen Stephens should call 911.

Steve Stephens, the man wanted for killing a 74-year-old man and uploading the video to Facebook Easter Sunday, has been found dead inside a vehicle in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Despite Facebook's claims that they removed the video within 23 minutes of receiving the first report, a report was not filed until over an hour after the video was posted.

Lane also said she has received support from many, including her family, her boss, and even strangers like two daughters of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr., who police say Stephens gunned down on Easter.

The killing triggered soul-searching at Facebook, which once again found its live video product used to broadcast a violent crime.

Yesterday, there were reports that Stephens was spotted in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park area, but police said the reports were unsubstantiated.

"We have a lot of work, and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening", he said.

"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens told the elderly father of nine in the video.

The video, which has since been deleted along with the entire account, showed Stephens walking up to 74-year-old Robert Godwin on the sidewalk and shooting him in the head.

Police said it wasn't clear whether Stephens had any help while he was on the run or where he had been and that investigators will try to retrace his steps.
