McDonald's applauds crew members who recognized man wanted in Facebook video killing

A McDonald's worker tipped off police to the whereabouts of Steve Stephens, the man accused of murdering 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. and posting a video of the crime on Facebook.

The US man wanted for killing Godwin in OH and then posting a video of the murder on Facebook fatally shot himself Tuesday after a brief pursuit in neighboring Pennsylvania, police said.

CLEVELAND - Pennsylvania police say a cellphone used to record video of a Cleveland retiree's shooting death that was posted on Facebook was not found in the killer's auto.

"Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Robert Godwin, Sr.", he said.

The man known as the "Facebook killer" may have been taken down by a group of McDonald's employees in Erie, Pennsylvania, authorities said Tuesday.

The worker, who recognized Stephens as the wanted Cleveland Facebook killer, is credited with stalling him at the drive-thru window Tuesday so authorities could have extra response time.

The McDonald's employee called police as Stephens proceeded down the drive-thru, DuCharme said.

Troopers in marked patrol cars initiated a pursuit that lasted two miles.

Facebook said Stephens' account was suspended within 23 minutes of the murder video being reported, but admitted it needs to "do better".

State police gave chase and the suspect shot himself "as the vehicle was spinning out of control", police said. The crash is not shown on the surveillance video. Now, people on social media say the heroic worker deserves the $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Stephens.

DuCharme said the suspect "looked like he had to get going".

The mother previously said Stephens stopped by her house on Saturday with a cryptic message.

"I've got a lot of negative comments", Lane added.

The chilling video was on Facebook for three hours before it was taken down.
