Facebook Murders Suspect Now in Pennsylvania; Joy Lane Reacts to Murder Videos

Warren Dawson | 19 April, 2017, 11:01

Steve Stephens allegedly shot and killed seventy-four year-old Robert Godwin in Cleveland, Ohio, on Easter Sunday, before uploading a video of the murder on Facebook and going on the run from police.

Acting on the tip, police arrived at the Erie McDonald's and spotted Stephens leaving the fast-food restaurant.

A state trooper eventually forced Stephens to stop by using what police call the PIT maneuver, in which a pursuing auto can force a fleeing vehicle to suddenly turn, causing the driver to lose control and stop.

The man accused of randomly gunning down a Cleveland retiree and posting the video to Facebook took his own life in Pennsylvania, where police were tipped off by a McDonald's worker.

Stephens, 37, remained on the run for almost 48 hours after shooting a stranger in the head in Cleveland and posting the snuff footage on Facebook. Police said he died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on Tuesday afternoon after a brief pursuit by Pennsylvania state police.

As The Two-Way reported, police said that Stephens "claimed to have committed multiple other homicides, which are still not verified". Police in Philadelphia say they have "no indication" that the suspect in an apparently random killing in Cleveland is in Philadelphia.

"We are grateful to the people who gave this tip", Williams said in a press conference.

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

Stephens' vehicle sustained minor damage after a trooper couldn't stop in time and hit the auto, but no injuries to law enforcement were reported.

Authorities don't believe that Stephens attacked anyone else since shooting Godwin.

"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens tells Godwin before pointing a gun at him. Federal agents and state police are searching the auto, which crashed on Buffalo Street in front of a vacant school building.

"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all", she said. Detectives spoke with the suspect on Sunday by cellphone and tried to persuade him to surrender, police said.

The FBI had put Stephens on its Most Wanted list, and authorities were offering up to US$50,000 (A$66,225) in rewards for information leading to his capture.
