The man accused of murdering a man in Cleveland, then posting a video of it to Facebook has taken his own life, according to police.
The Pennsylvania State Police says Steve Stephens was located by police Tuesday morning in Erie County, in the State’s north-east.
Police pursued him, and investigators say he shot and killed himself.

Stephens was subject of a nationwide manhunt along with a $50,000 reward and was facing charges of aggravated murder.
He allegedly shot 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. in the head, then uploaded a gruesome video of the killing to his Facebook page.
The video shows Stephens sitting in a car talking to the camera saying “Found me somebody I’m going to kill — this guy right here, this old dude.”
He then gets out of the car, and says a woman’s name to the confused Godwin, “Joy Lane.”
“She’s the reason this is about to happen to you,” Stephens says before opening fire.
CBS news reports Joy Lane was Stephens’ romantic partner.
In separate videos, including one Facebook Live video, Stephens also claims to have killed more than a dozen other people, but police say they have not found any evidence of other murders.
