Steve Stephens, the Cleveland man who went live on the social media platform while he committed a random murder of an elderly man, has died in Erie, Pennsylvania of a self-inflicted gun shot after a police pursuit.

A sharped eyed McDonald's drive-thru employee is being credited for tipping off police to the possibly sighting of Stephens. The tip brought out notified police in Erie, Pennsylvania, they went on high alert, Stephens was considered armed and extremely dangerous.  

Federal State and local law enforcement pursued Stephens who ended took his own life with a single shot 103 miles from where this tragedy unfolded on Easter Sunday.

Stephens, 37, approached Robert Godwin, 74, on the streets of Cleveland Easter Sunday and after asking him to say the name of his former girlfriend, whom he blamed his actions, he shot the father of ten while the man tried to shield himself.

The former girlfriend, which many media have identified, has been quoted as shocked, horrified over the senseless tragedies. She spoke highly of Stephens, indicating he was "a really nice guy. He is generous with everyone he knows. He was kind and loving to me and my children." She also said, "My heart and prayers goes out to the family members of the victim (s)."

Oddly, it appears as if Stephens simply snapped. The loss of his relationship was too much for him to handle. He was gainfully employed, worked as a counselor for Beech Brook, a children's behavioral health agency that provides care for vulnerable youth, for nearly ten years.

During the Facebook video posted, Stephens claimed he committed an "Easter Day Slaughter" and alleged to have murdered up to 13 others. No other victims were found.

Although the video has since been removed, it remained active for more than three hours. Sparking outrage over the social media's platform failure to catch the posting.
