McDonald’s Employees Held Facebook Live Killer’s Fries To Help Cops Catch Him

When you’re on the run from the police for killing someone on Facebook Live, it’s probably in your best interest to lay low.
But then again, if you’re the kind of person who’d do something like that, you’re more than likely not in total control of all your mental faculties.
So you’d think there’s nothing wrong with ordering some McDonald’s in broad daylight, and aren’t really concerned with someone recognizing you while you satisfy your urge to quell a Big Mac attack.
And for Steve Stephens, aka The Facebook Live Killer, his craving for fries is ultimately what did him in.
McDonald’s employees working in an Erie, Pennsylvania location immediately recognized the man who ordered a 20-piece chicken McNuggets and large fries as Stephens. They acted fast by devising a ploy that would keep him at bay long enough for the cops to get on his tail.
And that plan was to make the man wait for his fries by pretending like they weren’t ready to be served. It worked.
Although Stephens said that he had to go and drove off without grabbing the fries, the delay gave police enough time to get in his vicinity and catch up to him.
Cops pursued Stephens in a high-speed chase, until he pulled over on the side of the road and shot himself.
Henry Sayers, the McDonald’s manager on duty at the time of Stephens’ order, told theNY Times that when Stephens left with his $ 5.35 order he didn’t speed away, but drove off at a normal pace in a white Ford Fusion sedan.
Police said that they weren’t sure how long Stephens was residing in the area, which was some 100 miles away from Cleveland, where the murder took place.
Investigators did receive a “ping” from the man’s cell phone near Erie, but were unsuccessful in locating him. Police attribute the location’s densely wooded areas and plenitude of hideouts like barns and farm houses as one of the reasons Stephens was so hard to track down.
The end of Stephens’ manhunt was ominously predicted by Peter J. Elliott, United States Marshal for the Northern District of Ohio during a news conference.
“Either he’s dead somewhere or someone’s holding him up somewhere else in a house,” Elliott said.

I remember nearly every detail, down to the socks he was wearing, when I first brought my son home from the hospital. The way I gingerly put him in the car seat. The way my wife kept looking at him as she sat in the back of the car. His little polar bear onesie and how the flowers in the vase tipped over and got water all over my laptop, breaking it. Me being angry for two seconds then looking at my son’s face and forgetting all about it.
I still have the clothes my baby boy was wearing that day tucked away. I can’t wait to show him that blanket and outfit in the future. And who knows? If he has a kid one day maybe they can use the same outfit and blanket, but that’s years from now.
Most likely the blanket and clothes will be lost or destroyed from now until then, but I admit that if I lost that t hing now, I’d be crushed.
Just like this family was to discover that the homemade blanket they brought their baby girl from the hospital in went missing.
So her parents put out the word in hopes that their blankie would be found.
Today at brunch (McGuire’s) somewhere between our walk inside, while we were eating, or our exit out of the restaurant, our precious girl’s blanket went missing. (This is the blanket she sleeps with every night and was brought home from the hospital wrapped in). Unaware of this until we made it home, I rushed back to McGuire’s with no luck, searched the whole restaurant up and down along with the parking lot. I know social media is big nowadays so every share means a lot and we would really like to have the blanket returned, no harm no foul on whether it was accidentally picked up and forgot about or whatever may have happened to it. Please share this and hopefully this hand-made, sentimental blanket can be returned to the rightful owner, contact me if it is found, thank you all. Corey Ness – (850)-293-2176! ?
People began sharing their message, but so far, it hasn’t turned up.
If you happen to come across the blanket, hit them up!
