Videos show desperation of suspect in Facebook video killing

The family of a 74-year-old man who was shot and killed on Easter Sunday met with the killer's former girlfriend, CNN reports. He then shot him.

"The hashtags Joy Lane, Joy Lane massacre - I don't even know who Joy Lane is anymore, or how to pick up all the pieces of my world at this moment", Lane told the affiliate.

"We - I pulled my front drive thru girl from the window and had myself and my supervisor present at the window and basically just told him it's going to be a minute for his fries - which it wasn't really, we just wanted to make sure she got in contact with the state police".

Steve Stephens shot himself shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday after a McDonald's employee spotted him near Erie, Pennsylvania and state police pursued him in a brief chase. "Some even said he should have killed me".

Though shocked and deeply pained by their father's brutal murder, the children said they felt sorry for his killer.

The mother previously said Stephens stopped by her house on Saturday with a cryptic message.

"I snapped", he said, "I just snapped".

Lane told the news station that she and Stephens were in a serious relationship and had considered an engagement not too long before they mutually broke up in part because of his gambling issues.

According to Lane, her last conversation with Stephens was last Saturday and he told her he had quit his job and was moving out of state.

Green said of Lane: "It's not her fault".

Godwin taught his children the value of hard work, how to love God and how to forgive, his children said.

The FBI joined state authorities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, and NY in the search for Stephens, offering a reward of $50,000 for information leading to the suspect's apprehension. Each one of us forgive the killer, the murderer.

Godwin's daughter, Brenda Haymon, learned of Stephens' death as she was planning funeral arrangements for her father.

Godwin will be laid to rest Saturday, almost a week after he his last meal with his children.
