McDonald's tipster led police to Facebook Killer Steve Stephens

20 April 2017, 07:35 | Patty Hardy

Steve Stephens was accused of shooting Robert Godwin Sr., 74, on a sidewalk on Sunday before fleeing in a auto and uploading a video of the murder to Facebook, becoming the focus of a nationwide manhunt.

Pennsylvania State Police said Steve Stephens was spotted Tuesday morning in Erie County, in the state's northwest corner. He shot himself in the head as the vehicle spun out of control, police said.

"I want to officially announce that the search for Stephen has ended", said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin D. Williams said at the noon press conference Wednesday. "We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened".

The company said on Monday that it needed to improve after the video of the murder in Cleveland on Sunday remained on its website and mobile app for two hours.

At a Silicon Valley conference Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg briefly addressed the Cleveland case, saying Facebook has "a lot of work to do" and "we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this".

In a separate video posted on Facebook, Stephens claimed to have killed more than a dozen other people. He said he "just snapped".

In the video, which appears shaky, Stephens gets out of his auto and appears to randomly target Godwin, who was holding a shopping bag.

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

"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens tells Godwin before pointing a gun at him. He ordered a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and french fries, according to the manager. Williams said police have not verified any other shootings or deaths.

The drive-thru attendant thought she recognized Stephens and called state police, restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr. told the Erie Times-News.

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

The chief also said they've been talking with family and friends of Stephens, who is employed at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency headquartered in Pepper Pike, near Cleveland.

Facebook said it removed the video of the shooting 23 minutes after learning of it.

In a statement, the social media platform said it would look for ways to make it easier for people to report such videos and speed up the process of reviewing items once they are reported.

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world".
