Facebook killer takes his own life as police close in

CORRECTS TO CLARIFY THE VIDEO WAS NOT BROADCAST ON FACEBOOK LIVE AS POLICE INITIALLY INDICATED BUT POSTED AFTER THE KILLING- This undated

A $5.35 (£4.17) order of Chicken McNuggets and large fries led police to Facebook killer Steve Stephens after a two-day manhunt.

Troopers acting on a tip spotted Steve Stephens' vehicle Tuesday near Erie, in Pennsylvania's northwest corner.

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

Stephens took a video of himself shooting 74-year-old Robert Godwin in the street as he walked home from Easter meal with his children. Stephens later posted the video of him shooting and killing Godwin on Facebook. It was just the latest instance of crime footage being shared on social media.

Steve Stephens blamed his former girlfriend, Joy Lane, for the killing.

Investigators said that Godwin was the only victim so far linked to Stephens, despite his claim on Facebook that he killed over a dozen people.

The employee took Stephens' money and waited for him to drive up to the next window before calling the police, DuCharme said.

"From a law enforcement and apprehension perspective, having a person's face out there no longer makes them invisible", he says. The one officer just shook his head. "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens said.

Godwin's sister said she feels, "Angry sometimes", over Robert's death and that she was hoping Stephens would be brought to justice.

Troopers and police began a pursuit on Buffalo Road at fairly low speeds and a Pennsylvania trooper in a patrol auto performed a "Pit Maneuver" on the white Ford Fusion, Stephens was driving.

Lane told Fox 8 that she spoke to Stephens the night before the shooting.

Police had launched a national search for the fugitive gunman and offered a $50,000 (£38,950) reward for information leading to his capture.

Police later located him by a cellphone ping.

Speaking at an annual Facebook software conference, Zuckerberg also expressed condolences for Godwin's family and friends.
