  • Search For Facebook Killer Continues

Troopers attempted a PIT maneuver to disable Stephens' vehicle, and as it was spinning out of control, police say Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head.

Cleveland authorities held a news conference after the death of Steve Stephens, suspected of killing a Cleveland man last week, was confirmed Tuesday. It was just the latest instance of crime footage being shared on social media.

The ex-girlfriend of suspected Cleveland Facebook murderer Steve Stephens met and embraced loved ones of the man Stephens allegedly shot and killed on Tuesday, hours after the fugitive ended his own life while on the run.

In one video posted on Facebook, Stephens said that he gambled away everything and that he and his girlfriend had planned to marry but did not, without saying why.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf tweeted a thank you to the state police "for their vigilance in pursuing the Facebook killer".

Manhunt intensifies for Cleveland murder suspect as police vow to catch him
According to its website, Beech Brook says it will serve more than 18,000 children and families in northeast OH this year. Anyone with information may contact the Cleveland Police Department of the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324).

Though shocked and deeply pained by their father's brutal murder, the children said they felt sorry for his killer.

On Monday evening, Facebook announced that it was launching a review for reporting harmful content following the killing.

Stephens, who was 37, posted video on Facebook of his seemingly random killing of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr.in Cleveland on Sunday. "I wish it had gone down like that instead of him shooting himself".

The employee took Stephens' money and waited for him to drive up to the next window before calling the police, DuCharme said. "We will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening", he said.

Stephens is not believed to have known Godwin, a retired foundry worker who media reports said spent Easter Sunday morning with his son and daughter-in-law before he was killed. She mentioned his Facebook posts and Stephens claimed to have killed 14 people.

When police tracked down Stephens' auto, they pursued him while trying to get him to pull over.
