Probably for the best. This killer wanted notoriety and the best thing would be for the police and media to stop using his name. Focus only on the victim (or victims if the killer is to be believed).

Give a description of the stolen vehicles, give more than a cursory mention. That kind of thing.

My assessment, guy was a whack job or high when he shot that guy for no reason. Was caught today, got scared and killed himself. Again, the best outcome for this situation. Heck, if a cop shoots him we have to go through all the "police brutality" crap that we get these days.

Simple answer...this couple didn't die on "television". Mr. Godwin's killing would have been little more than agate type had it not been for the publication on Facebook. Sad to say, but the it would have taken quite awhile (if ever) for the media to conclude that poor Mr. Godwin, who was gunned down in a run-down, poor part of town, was anything more than a casualty of the violent urban streets...presumed to be part of the criminal element.

True enough.

Sounds like it wasn't yet clear if any vehicles had been taken. I'm guessing the authorities are keeping things close to the vest for some reason - probably a good one.

The question that is not likely to be asked - why did Stevens choose to go down there ? He went out of his way, outside of where he had lived. Maybe there was familiarity with the area from the presumed original homes of some of the foster children he worked with, but why not where he lived or where he had been stalking around his ex's house, out near me ? Greater police presence ? Proactive neighbors ? The mere perception of such things, real or not ?

No real editorial discussion, though. Just another day, huh ?

I get what you're saying, but not only wasn't the double murder as sensationalistic as the Facebook killer's, there is no face for the bogey man. The low-key reporting also makes you wonder if the authorities have some idea as to who the killer is...

Facebook killer Steve Stephens was undone by McDonald's employees who ID'd him and made him wait a little extra time for his order so the cops could come and catch him.

Stephens went through the drive-thru at the McDonald's on Buffalo Road in Erie, PA when one of the workers recognized him. He ordered a 20-piece McNugget and a large fry ... but workers made it seem the fries weren't ready so they could buy time.

According to the restaurant's manager ... Stephens got his nuggets, but then said he had to go and he drove off without the fries. It was enough time for cops to get on his tail.

Stephens was involved in a high-speed police chase shortly afterward, before committing suicide in his car.

We wondered if the McDonald's drive thru employee would get the $50,000 reward. According to the Cleveland news, the public will not know as the FBI does not disclose who receives reward money or how much.

On another note. Has anyone heard Rev Al Sharpton or Rev Jesse Jackson speak out about this? They are usually front and center on the national news when a black person is murdered. Oh wait a minute, this was a black on black crime, so they can't claim racism. As longtime leaders for Black America they are always strangely quiet when it in black on black crime.

Great job by the McD's employees. They were actually taking quite a risk with a psychotic, suicidal and unremorseful killer. He could have opened fire on them, too, especially if he suspected they were withholding his fries intentionally to buy time for the police.
