Ex-girlfriend of Facebook murder suspect meets with victim's family

Facebook said Stephens' account was suspended within 23 minutes of the murder video being reported, but admitted it needs to "do better".

While this last story of this coward may be amusing to some, may we remember his victim, Robert Godwin Sr.

There was no fingerpointing - just hugs. There was reportedly no finger pointing or blame, just mutual grief over the ordeal.

The worker called 911, and state police gave chase.

"We lost our dad, but this mother lost her son, his children lost their dad", Godwin-Baines said. "I've got a lot of negative comments".

She said her father would be proud of their choice to forgive.

"I seen him in there ordering his food and I was like, 'Oh he look familiar, '" Byes told WIVB.

The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years".

In the video, Stephens told Mr Godwin the name of his girlfriend and said: "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you".

Andersen back for playoffs
Babcock had no update on Andersen other than to suggest that "ideally" he would start the finale against the Blue Jackets. Their possession numbers were superb against the Blue Jackets as well, registering almost 60 per cent and above each.

According to Lane, her last conversation with Stephens was last Saturday and he told her he had quit his job and was moving out of state.

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.

The Godwin sisters told Lane that none of this was her fault and that they don't hold any animosity for her.

"We have a lot of work and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening", Mr Zuckerberg said.

"I'm sorry it ended the way it did", said Maggie Green. "He was definitely one in a million".

Stephens, 37, had been on the run for three days but was spotted when he pulled into a drive-thru McDonald's in Pennsylvania - more than 100 miles from the scene of the murder.

The Cleveland Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation put the word out nationwide that Stephens was likely still driving the white Ford Fusion with the temporary license tag of #363630. Stephens shot himself in the head after police made contact with the back of the Fusion to bring the vehicle to a halt.

Authorities had hoped for a different outcome.

"When I saw him I knew it was him".
