Videos show desperation of suspect in Facebook video killing

The smartphone video shows the Cleveland man saying he had found someone to kill, then shows him crossing the street, raising a handgun at 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr, and pulling the trigger.

Cleveland's police chief had referred to Facebook's role in a separate press conference.

"Any problems he is having, we can have a conversation", Jackson said.

Tonya R. Godwin-Baines and Debbie D. Godwin said they know Lane did nothing wrong and wanted her to know it.

Police would not speculate on what triggered the killing, but in the video and other footage he posted, Stephens talked about having trouble with his girlfriend and losing everything he had to gambling.

Steve Stephens, 37, had been the subject of a nationwide manhunt in the wake of Sunday's killing in Cleveland.

"Only Steve knows that", Williams said.

"I can only give you my only personal opinion based on the past", Pete Elliott of the Cleveland U.S. Marshals said.

Police say Stephens had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Acting on a tip, Pennsylvania State Police spotted Steve Stephens, 37, leaving a McDonald's in Erie and went after him, bumping his vehicle to try to get it to stop, authorities said.

"Obviously this is something they have to get on top of with some urgency, but it's an extraordinarily hard problem", commented Geoff Blaber from the CCS Insight tech consultancy.

Police are still on the lookout of seizing the Facebook killer to face his murder charges.

It was late Tuesday morning, nearly lunchtime, and authorities were in the third day of an intensive manhunt for Stephens.

"Augmented reality is going to help us mix the digital and physical in all new ways", he said. They're testing the gun to see if it's the one he used in the killing. To stall him, employees allegedly told him the fries weren't ready yet. Stephens apparently chose his victim at random and shot him at point blank range before taking off in a white Ford Fusion.
