Pennsylvania State Police were in pursuit of a white Ford Fusion reportedly belonging to the Facebook killer Steve Stephens at around 11:10 a.m. on Tuesday. But as they moved in, Stephens took his own life.

Manhunt ends

According to Cleveland Chief Calvin Williams, a tip was given to police that Stephens’ white Ford Fusion was parked in a McDonald’s Parking lot near Erie, Pennsylvania. Information that Stephen’s cell phone had “pinged” off a cell tower in Pennsylvania was apparently correct. The Pennsylvania State Police spotted Stephens, and the vehicle took off. After a brief pursuit into the town of Erie, Steve Stephens took his own life.

Investigators had worked around the clock since the senseless murder of Robert Godwin, Sr, 74, was live streamed on Facebook Easter Sunday.

People wondered how Steve Stephens managed to get all the way to Erie, Pennsylvania from Cleveland without being spotted, and why police couldn’t track him. The vehicle he was driving had no GPS system. And they had 400 tips to follow up, a huge strain on manpower resources.
