News 5 digs into his past

Steve Stephens shot himself shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday after a McDonald's employee spotted him near Erie, Pennsylvania and state police pursued him in a brief chase.

Pennsylvania State Police look over a auto as they investigate the scene where Steve Stephens, the suspect in the random killing of a Cleveland retiree posted on Facebook, was found shot dead Tuesday, April 18, 2.

A savvy McDonald's employee raised the alarm as Steve Stephens, the man who shot a 74-year-old great-grandfather in cold blood, pulled up at a drive-thru in Pennsylvania following a three-day nationwide manhunt.

Brenda Haymon, daughter of Godwin, learned that Stephens had killed himself while planning funeral arrangements for her father.

"Steve eventually stopped his vehicle and as officers approached his auto, he took his own life".

"We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened".

Police say Stephens was angry at his girlfriend and randomly chose Godwin, who was walking home from an Easter Sunday meal with family, to take out his anger on.

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. The social media network later removed the video.

"I am pretty sure he figured out that we were on to him", said DuCharme Jr. She says: "If you did it, you have to face your crime".

He posted video of that shooting on Facebook.

Almost two days after Steve Stephens fatally shot Godwin in cold blood, two of his daughters met with Joy Lane for the first time.

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

As officers approached his vehicle, Stephens shot himself, Pennsylvania state police said on Tuesday on Twitter and at a news conference. "This is something that should not have been shared around the world, period", Williams said.

Investigators said Godwin was the only victim so far linked to Stephens, despite his claim on Facebook that he killed over a dozen people.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson on Monday announced a reward of up to $50,000 (£39,000) for information leading to the suspect's arrest.
