Facebook video murder suspect kills himself in Pa., police confirm

Facebook video murder suspect kills himself in Pa., police confirm

His children said they want to remember him not as the man killed in a Facebook video, but as the peaceful and kind man who loved his family, who loved to fish and who even did his daughters' hair. Video of the incident was posted on Facebook. The search for murder suspect Steve Stephens put authorities in surrounding states on the lookout.

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.

"A traffic stop was attempted, there was a brief pursuit, at which time Stephens shot and killed himself", PSPD communications director Ryan Tarkowski said to reporters. Police attempted to pull him over and chased him briefly, but he eventually turned the gun on himself and was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The murderer's mother Maggie Green said her son attempted to visit her one day before killing Godwin to say goodbye, possibly foreshadowing his suicide. " ... We would like to have brought Stephens in peacefully and talked to him about why this happened".

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. A video uploaded two minutes later appears to show him gunning down Godwin.

Outrage at this senseless killing flooded social media as a country, thought to be torn apart at its foundation, came together to help in the hunt for the Facebook killer, who needed to come to justice. "We would have preferred that it had not ended this way", he added, saying he and the community would have had "a lot of questions" for Stephens.

And while no formal policy changes were announced by Facebook or Osofsky, he did allude to changes that will be made: "As a result of this bad series of events, we are reviewing our reporting flows to be sure people can report videos and other material that violates our standards as easily and quickly as possible".

Tonya R. Godwin-Baines and Debbie D. Godwin said they know Lane did nothing wrong and wanted her to know it. "I'm not happy [with] what you did but I forgive you". And when it stopped, officers approached the vehicle as Stevens took his own life, Williams said.
