After a two day manhunt that became nationwide the search for Steve Stephens, the so-called FB KILLER has finally come to an end. He shot himself after a short chase with Erie PD.
Stephens gunned down a Cleveland retiree and posted a video of the murder to his Facebook page. His two day reign of terror came to an end after a McDonald’s drive-thru employee recognized him and call law enforcement.
Stephens, a 37-year-old job counselor who worked with young people was wanted on murder charges in the killing of Robert Godwin Sr., 74, a former foundry worker and father of 10 who was picking up aluminum cans on Sunday when he was shot.
“This started with one tragedy and ended with another person taking their own life,” said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams. “We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened.”
Stephens had claimed that he murdered others as well but no evidence of this has been found.
