McDonald's order trips up Facebook slaying suspect

Only Steve Knows: Police Baffled by Facebook Video Killing

McDonald's staff tipped off police about the location of Facebook killer Steve Stephens after he ordered 20 Chicken McNuggets.

One of the pursuing troopers picked his spot - in front of an abandoned school - and rammed Stephens' bumper to get him to stop. Authorities say officers tried to pull Stephens over and, after a brief pursuit, he shot and killed himself.

He was wanted on an aggravated murder charge in the shooting death of a 74-year-old man who was picking up aluminum cans on Sunday after spending Easter with his family.

"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all".

"We have a lot of work, and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening", Zuckerberg said on stage at F8, Facebook's annual developers conference. "If you did it, you have to face your crime", she said.

Restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr and a supervisor told him his fries were delayed, but he eventually drove off and was chased by police before he stopped and shot himself dead.

Stephens said in a separate video on Facebook on Sunday that he had already killed a dozen others.

State police Major William Teper Jr. said the trooper who bumped Stephens' auto "saw him pull the gun out and shoot himself".

'Avatar' sequels now scheduled to start in December 2020
The first follow up to the 2009 sci-fi film will come out in December 2020, while the rest will release between 2021 and 2025. It's been over six years, and despite lots of talk and promises for several sequels, they have yet to materialize.

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. "It was loud and distinctive", Wheeler said. And so, I just would want him to know that even in his worst state, he's loved...that God loves him, even in the bad stuff that he did to my dad...even though he's going to have to go through many things to get better, there's worth in him.

"Two seconds later, I hear these sirens, and they come whipping past me", she said. "They had their guns out, but when he shook his head, they lowered their guns".

Facebook has since announced it was launching a review for reporting harmful content. Stephens' cellphone had been tracked Sunday afternoon near Erie, officials said on Monday.

"Once a piece of content is reported by users as inappropriate, it is typically reviewed within 24 hours", the report noted.

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world".

It is not thought Mr Godwin knew Stephens beforehand.

The woman, Joy Lane, told WJW-TV in Cleveland that she last talked with Stephens on Saturday night, when he told her he had quit his job and was moving out of state.

Though shocked and deeply pained by their father's brutal murder, the children said they felt sorry for his killer.
