“Facebook Killer” Steve Stephens Commits Suicide After Pursuit

April 18, 2017 |  by  |  sad news, SMDH  |  Share

The coward that killed the elderly man for no reason on Easter Sunday, was found dead in Erie County, Pennsylvania.

For two days, authorities across the country scrambled to find Stephens, the man wanted for the death of Robert Godwin — a self-taught mechanic and grandfather of 14.
Steve Stephens was spotted this morning by PSP members in Erie County. After a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself.

Godwin’s daughter Brenda Haymon learned of Stephens’ death as she was planning funeral arrangements for her father.

“All I can say is that I wish he had gone down in a hail of one hundred bullets,” Brenda Haymon told CNN. “I wish it had gone down like that instead of him shooting himself.”
Godwin was shot while walking home from an Easter meal Sunday in Cleveland. Stephens later posted video of the killing on Facebook.

Through their tears, several of Godwin’s children said they held no animosity against Stephens.

“Each one of us forgives the killer, the murderer,” Godwin’s daughter Tonya Godwin Baines said Monday.
Son told victim, ‘OK, enjoy your Easter’

Godwin taught his children the value of hard work. He taught them how to love God and fear God, and how to forgive, his children said.
“They don’t make men like him anymore. He was definitely one in a million,” said another daughter, Debbie Godwin.

The police chief said Stephens apparently chose Godwin at random.
Stephens’ mother, Maggie Green, said her son stopped by her house Saturday and gave her a cryptic message.
“He said this (was) the last time I was going to see him,” Green said.
They spoke briefly the next day, his mother said. Before Green’s phone died, Stephens told her he was “shooting people” because he was “mad with his girlfriend” of about three years, his mother said.

Later Sunday, Stephens uploaded a video to his Facebook page showing a gun pointed at a man’s head.

Seconds before the shooting, Stephens asked the victim to say the name of a woman believed to associated with the suspect.
“She’s the reason why this is about to happen to you,” Stephens said.
Then, the gunman fires the weapon. The victim recoils and falls to the ground.

Stephens claimed on Facebook that he had committed multiple homicides, but police said they had no knowledge of other victims. He had many traffic violations but no criminal record, Williams said.

    The Kang of the south and the Snowman may link up and give us a duet album very soon!! I'm here for this!! They both make trap music but with different deliveries which can result into hotness.
    In an exclusive interview with Billboard, T.I. says he's ready to get started on "Dope Boy Academy" which I am assuming would be the title of the album. This year duet albums were the way to go. We had 21 Savage & Offset and as of recent Fabolous and Jadakiss released their highlyanticipated project.
    Read the full interview here and see what the ATLiens have in store for us.
