Police Confirm Facebook Murder Suspect Found Dead After Police Pursuit in Erie

Police confirm they have found the Facebook murder suspect dead in his car in the city of Erie after a chase with Pennsylvania State Police Tuesday.

Steve Stephens was found inside in the vehicle with a self-inflicted gunshot wound near Roger Young Park at Buffalo Road and Downing Avenue around 11:15 a.m.

During the pursuit, the car was described as a white Ford Fusion. Stephens was driving a vehicle with the same description and temporary license plates, Cleveland police said.

Spike strips were reportedly used during the chase.

Police are blocking off the area with crime scene tape.

The search for the suspect who authorities said killed an elderly man and then posted the video on Facebook expanded outside Ohio, with authorities calling on residents of nearby states to be on alert.

Stephens is suspected of killing 74-year-old Robert Godwin on Sunday in a residential area east of Cleveland, police said.

Police said Sunday night Stephens "may be out of state at this time," and called on residents in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan to be vigilant.

"He is considered armed and dangerous, so we want people to be careful out there," Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams told reporters.

The investigation and search for Stephens began Sunday after several people from outside the Cleveland area reported an alarming Facebook post, police union president Steve Loomis said

Stephens uploaded a video to his Facebook page showing a gun pointed at an unidentified man's head. The gun is fired, the man recoils and falls to the ground.

The video was posted around 2 p.m. Sunday. Facebook later disabled access to it.

"We do not allow this kind of content on Facebook. We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook, and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety," a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.

Stephens claimed on Facebook that he committed multiple homicides, but police said they have no knowledge of other victims.
