Steve Stephens, the main suspect in the Cleveland, Ohio Facebook killing which took place on Sunday, ended his life on Tuesday, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Stephens allegedly murdered 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. on Sunday afternoon and then uploaded a video documenting the murder to Facebook.

Police were in pursuit of Stephens, who was armed and considered dangerous, since Sunday after he fled. The nationwide manhunt culminated on Tuesday in Erie County, Pennsylvania when Stephens shot and killed himself.
