Facebook murder suspect Steve Stephens shoots himself to death

The Cleveland man that live streamed a murder on Facebook has been found dead of an apparent suicide near Erie

Erie County is in the northwestern corner of the state, roughly 100 miles (160 km) northeast of Cleveland.

Rumors that Stephens' phone pinged in the Erie, Pennsylvania area surfaced Monday, but Pennsylvania State Police said in a news conference Tuesday that they "had no direct knowledge" of that.

Pennsylvania police said he shot himself with a handgun about a mile from the McDonald's following a low-speed pursuit - at under 80km per hour. Instead, Stephens shot and killed himself.

"We are grateful that this has ended", said Cleveland Division of Police Chief Calvin Williams.

The daughter of Robert Godwin Sr., the man Stephens allegedly killed, released the following statement in reaction to the death of Stephens.

Social media soon spread the word. Until we can get our investigators to Erie, we won't know all the details.

Suspect Steve Stephens recorded himself approaching and then fatally shooting 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr., before he fled the scene and managed to evade police until Tuesday, when a standoff with police officers led to his suicide.

The judge must decide whether any of the statutory bars in the Act apply in the case, including health and human rights grounds. The court has set May 17 as the date for the next hearing.

"Stephens died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound while driving a white Ford Fusion near Buffalo Road and Downing Avenue around 11:10 a.m., police said".

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world". We can't do this in this country.

Stephens was the target of an intense manhunt in the Easter Sunday slaying of mechanic Robert Godwin in Cleveland. Not reported to Facebook.

Stephens, who had been described as armed and risky, had been on the FBI's Most Wanted list with authorities offering up to $50,000 in rewards for information leading to his arrest. According to the warrant, Godwin was "simply walking down the street collecting cans" when he was shot.

The killing was the latest in a string of disturbing crimes captured on Facebook video, including the alleged gang rape of a 15-year-old girl, two fatal shootings, and the kidnapping and torture of a disabled 18-year-old man.

Stephens claimed on Facebook that he had killed more people, but so far, police don't know of any other victims. That information has not been verified by police. But the gunman had been a regular at Erie's Presque Isle Downs & Casino, Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Wayne Kline said.
