The pursuit came after Stephens was spotted at a McDonald's in Erie, where workers reported Stephens arriving at the drive-thru, where he ordered 20 chicken nuggets and fries.

Gail Wheeler of Erie said she was stopped at a light at the McDonald's when Stephens came "whipping out" of the parking lot, almost hitting her.

Police said in a 3:30 p.m. news conference that an autopsy of Stephens' body will occur Wednesday at the Erie County Coroner's Office.

Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said: "I think the people on social media kind of know the power and I think they know the harm it can do".

On Sunday, 37-year-old Steve Stephens when murdered an elderly man in Cleveland, Ohio, and then posted video of the crime on Facebook. The chilling video was on Facebook for three hours before it was taken down. The social media network later removed the video.

Stephens replied that he could not wait and sped away from the scene.

A woman says the Cleveland man suspected in a random videotaped killing posted on Facebook almost hit her as he left the Pennsylvania McDonald's restaurant where an employee recognized him and called 911.

But Godwin's daughters, Tonya R. Godwin-Baines and Debbie D. Godwin, wanted to reassure Lane that Stephens' actions were not her fault and that she shouldn't blame herself.

"From a law enforcement and apprehension perspective, having a person's face out there no longer makes them invisible", he says.

Almost two days after Steve Stephens fatally shot Godwin in cold blood, two of his daughters met with Joy Lane for the first time. Stephens says the name of a woman, whom Godwin does not seem to recognize.
