Cleveland murder suspect Steve Stephens kills himself

Steve Stephens, the Cleveland murder suspect who posted video of the slaying on Facebook, shot and killed himself in Pennsylvania after a brief police chase, authorities said Tuesday.
Someone spotted Stephens' car in the parking lot of a McDonald's near Erie and called police, Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said.
After a short pursuit, Stephens' car stopped. As Pennsylvania state officers approached, Stephens killed himself, Williams said.
    "We're grateful that this has ended," the police chief said. "We would prefer that it had not ended this way because there are a lot of questions, I'm sure, that not only the family but the city in general would have had for Steve."
    For two days, authorities across the country scrambled to find Stephens, the man wanted for the death of Robert Godwin -- a self-taught mechanic and grandfather of 14.
    Godwin's daughter Brenda Haymon learned of Stephens' death as she was planning funeral arrangements for her father.
    "All I can say is that I wish he had gone down in a hail of 100 bullets," Haymon told CNN. "I wish it had gone down like that instead of him shooting himself."
