'Facebook killer' Steve Stephens found dead after auto chase

It marked a violent end to the almost 48-hour multistate manhunt for Steve Stephens, whose case brought another round of criticism down on Facebook over how responsibly it polices objectionable material posted by users. A pursuing trooper's auto slid into Stephens' vehicle, but the officer was not injured.

In a message posted on Facebook on Tuesday, police confirmed that Steve Stephens had died by suicide after a chase in Erie County, Pennsylvania.

The auto Stephens was thought to be driving, a white Ford Fusion, did not contain Global Positioning System tracking devices, authorities said. Now, Godwin's sister says those relatives will be coming to Cleveland for his funeral.

"He's laying there -Oh, Lord have mercy", she said, moments after walking out her front door and spotting Robert Godwin Sr.'s body. Since then, he led authorities on a nationwide search that ended when he shot himself dead.

In a statement early Monday, police warned residents of Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and MI to be on the lookout for Stephens, who they said may have traveled out of state.

"I can't wait!" Stephens reportedly yelled in response, according to The Daily Mail.

As his vehicle was spinning out of control due to the maneuver, Stephens pulled out a pistol and shot himself in the head.
