In interviews before Stephens' death, Mr Godwin's relatives said they forgave his killer.
The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens' vehicle was in the McDonald's parking lot in Erie, in the northwestern corner of the state, about 100 miles east of Cleveland, authorities said. "Our kids, although they should not have seen this, I'm sure a lot have". He claimed that he had shot 15 other people as well, but officials said that claim thus far appears unfounded.
"You know, the local football team, the rest of the gang and that sort of thing, and (they) don't sort of conscientiously think through that - even though the target audience many be 10 of their buddies - the potential virtual audience can be in the hundreds of millions", Surette says. "And that's been hard", she said.
The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years".
WEWS-TV reports that a video Stephens posted to Facebook a year ago showed him rapidly firing at targets at the range in Willoughby and being warned to stop by an employee.
Video footage of a senseless murder in Cleveland, posted after the fact on Facebook Live, has attracted national attention to the role of the platform in criminals' minds. "She should not feel like it's her fault".
"I don't want that man to die, I want him brought to justice", one of his sons, Robby Miller, told CNN.

Clark said shutting down the project would hurt the province. "[Clark] promised unicorns in everyone's backyards", said Weaver. On the Site C dam, Horgan has vowed to review the project, while Weaver said the Green Party would halt the project.
Stephens is armed and unsafe, police said. "The murderer. We want to wrap our arms around him", said Tonya Godwin Baines in a CNN interview.
The daughter of the shooting victim says she's sad that the suspect killed himself in Pennsylvania.
Authorities in Cleveland have urged a nationwide debate on the issue of violence posted to social media, and to find answers to the plague of gun crime rocking America. Steve Stephens, the suspect in Facebook killing, reportedly shot and killed himself in Pennsylvania. When the employee recognized his face, she called authorities right away and tried to stall him.
Police tracked his white Ford Fusion nearby before a two-mile pursuit that ended with Stephens shooting himself as state troopers rammed his vehicle to a standstill. He shot and killed himself after his auto spun out and came to a stop.
"This started with one tragedy and ended with another person taking their own life", said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, speaking at the company's F8 developer conference on Tuesday, expressed his condolences to Godwin's family and friends. "I wouldn't wish that on anybody". I don't know if I know how to be Joy Lane anymore.
Godwin will be laid to rest Saturday, almost a week after he his last meal with his children.
