(KGTV)--Facebook killer Steve Stephens uploaded the murder of an Ohio man to Facebook on Easter Sunday so perhaps it's only fitting that social media is where folks turned to react to this morning's news that the killer killed himself.
Pennsylvania State Police said an alert citizen spotted Stephens around 11 a.m. Tuesday in Erie County. Troopers located the suspect in his vehicle a short time later and Stephens gave chase in his car. While spinning out of control due to a PIT maneuver, Stephens pulled out a pistol and shot himself in the head.
Meanwhile, witnesses took to (where else?) Twitter and Facebook to report the news of his capture. Take a look:
