Suspect in Cleveland Facebook killing shoots himself after police chase

The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens was at the McDonald's in Erie, in the northwestern corner of the state, about 100 miles east of Cleveland.

After a brief chase, Stephens stopped his vehicle, Williams said.

Stephens was accused of fatally shooting Robert Godwin Sr in Cleveland, Ohio as the 74-year-old grandfather was walking home from dinner on Easter Sunday.

"As the officers approached that vehicle Steve Stephens took his own life", Williams said. Although Stephens is dead, Jones said he has not found peace.

"But he just took his nuggets and said, 'I have to go, ' and he drove off", Sayers told press, while adding that Stephens did not speed away, but rather drove off normally, without the fries.

After the slaying of Godwin, Lane was placed in protective care while authorities launched a nationwide hunt for Stephens over the course of several days.

It was loud and distinctive", Wheeler said."The next thing I know, they're approaching the vehicle. She said the chase slowed suddenly from 50 miles per hour to about 20 miles per hour when the road narrowed from four lanes to two.

In interviews before Stephens' death, Godwin's relatives said they forgave his killer.

Robert Godwin Sr., is being remembered as a wonderful person who taught his entire family about forgiveness. Now, Godwin's sister says those relatives will be coming to Cleveland for his funeral.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson told a news conference: "We have closure in regards to the search for Steve Stephens".

The incident was the latest grisly crime posted on Facebook, reviving questions about videos posted on the world's largest social network, and how - or if - they can be monitored.

Godwin's family reached out to WJW saying they wanted to reassure Lane, and the station set up a meeting Tuesday morning. Some reports say his cell phone was last pinged in Erie, Pa.; police also spoke with him by phone at one point Sunday.

"I am pretty sure he figured out that we were on to him".
