Facebook murderer Steve Stephens shot and killed himself in Pennsylvania Tuesday morning, ending a three-day manhunt for the Cleveland killer, state police confirmed.
Stephens turned the gun on himself after an attempted traffic stop in Erie County, police said. He was found in a white Ford Fusion in Erie, according to GoErie.com.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf commended police for the pursuit and said no one else in the state was hurt.
Stephens, 37, remained on the run for nearly 48 hours after shooting a stranger in the head in Cleveland and posting the snuff footage on Facebook.
His death came just hours after police announced that they had received about 400 tips nationwide for the case, but did not have a clear idea of where he might be.
Police also found no evidence of Stephens’ claim, in a Facebook Live rant, that he had killed 13 people.
