FACEBOOK KILLING STEVE STEPHENS FOUND DEAD

FACEBOOK KILLING STEVE STEPHENS FOUND DEAD

The man known as the "Facebook Killer" was found dead after a brief police pursuit in the USA state of Pennsylvania, authorities said on Tuesday.

"Steve Stephens was spotted this morning by [Pennsylvania State Police] members in Erie County", the state police said on its Twitter account.

Stephens was found dead after a brief police pursuit in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania.

Stephens is accused of shooting 74-year-old Robert Godwin, Sr., and posting video of the murder to Facebook.

She said she tried to reach him after the video was posted on Facebook but he never answered his phone.

Lowry bounces back, Raptors edge Bucks to even series at 1-1
Raptors: Ibaka started despite a sore left ankle sustained when he stepped on Antetokounmpo's foot in the third quarter of Game 1. So, in the first round of Eastern conference, the Bucks leads 1-0 out of seven games.

Before shooting Godwin, Stephens instructed the man to say the name of his former girlfriend, telling the elderly man that, "She's the reason why this is about to happen to you". Frederick told Cleveland.com that he recalls Stephens as nice and jovial, not negative. Police said Steve Stephens killed Godwin on Sunday and posted the video on Facebook.

Stephens, who had no prior criminal record, was not suspected in any other killings, Cleveland officials said.

Tuesday marked the third day of the multistate manhunt for Stephens. He offered his condolences and reiterated the company's position that it will review its "reporting flows" so that users can flag video and other content that violates its policies. The news station reports that Stephens filed for bankruptcy two years ago.

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.

"He got to the second window of the drive-thru", said the owner, Thomas DuCharme, Jr.

Stephens was employed at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency in northeastern OH that serves children, teenagers and families, according to a spokeswoman for the facility. The video remained on the social network for about two hours before it was taken down.

"I truly can say I don't even feel any animosity against the guy that killed my father", she said.

"We are grateful that this has ended", Williams told reporters Tuesday. But the videos showed a man they did not recognize.

Police said Sunday night Stephens may have left the state and warned residents of Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan and NY to be on alert.
