Facebook-murder accused dead after police chase

Only Steve Knows: Police Baffled by Facebook Video Killing

A USA hunt for the gunman accused of murdering a grandfather and posting the crime on Facebook ended Tuesday with the suspect killing himself after a brief pursuit with police in Pennsylvania. DuCharme says Stephens replied he had no time to wait and drove away.

According to Raymond Surette, a criminal justice professor at the University of Central Florida, this sort of "performance crime" is growing because social media makes it so easy to send a statement to a small, targeted audience.

Stephens, 37, posted a video of the killing to Facebook. In it, he said, "I snapped, I just snapped". "Some even said he should have killed me". "I think it has tarnished [Facebook's] overall brand".

She also said Stephens was "a nice guy" who was good to her and her children.

The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens was at the McDonald's in Erie, in the northwestern corner of the state, about 100 miles east of Cleveland.

Police were alerted of Stephens' whereabouts by McDonald's employees.

The order came through the McDonald's drive-thru window in Harborcreek Township, Pennsylvania: Chicken McNuggets and a side of fries.

"As the vehicle was spinning out of control from the PIT manoeuver, Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head", Pennsylvania State Police said.

Google Home now supports multiple users
Google said Google Assistant on Google Home should recognise you going forward and be personalised to you - from music to news. Future "OK Google " commands are compared to the previous analysis, and Google Home decides if it's a match.

And just as brazenly, in a 2nd video uploaded to Facebook (above), Stephens called his crime the "Easter Sunday massacre".

The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years". Stephens' cellphone had been tracked Sunday afternoon near Erie, officials said on Monday.

Facebook took down Stephens's videos and disabled his account about two hours after he first started uploading. The company has since announced it is launching a review for reporting harmful content.

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world, period".

This undated photo provided by the Cleveland Police shows Steve Stephens. He tells the man to say a woman's name and pulls out his gun.

Police are searching for a man who they say committed a murder on Facebook Live in Cleveland, Ohio. Then, as Stephen's pulled around, the worker noticed the vehicle was a white Ford Fusion with temporary OH tags.

Stephens called Lane the day before the murder to tell her he had quit his job and planned to move out of state.

Before murdering Godwin, Stephens had written on his Facebook page that he wanted to kill someone out of rage toward his ex-girlfriend.
