Authorities say Stephens shot and killed himself during the pursuit.
Cleveland 19 reports that the chase lasted for about two miles before Stephens took his own life. "We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened".
The chilling video was on Facebook for three hours before it was taken down.
Throughout the search, social media played a role in the investigation. In July 2016, a man in Chicago was shot while he was streaming a video on Facebook Live; a fleeing Oklahoma murderer in October 2016 live streamed his run from the police on Facebook. Stephens also went live on Facebook to confess to the murder.
One of Godwin's daughters, Debbie Godwin, said she wished Stephens had been captured.
"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all".

Who is the McDonald's employee many have labeled a hero for stalling Cleveland Facebook killer Steve Stephens at the drive-thru?
Police say the 37-year-old Stephens had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Thomas DuCharme, the owner of that Pennsylvania McDonald's restaurant in Erie, said the worker doesn't think of herself as a hero.
The Cleveland Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation put the word out nationwide that Stephens was likely still driving the white Ford Fusion with the temporary license tag of #363630.
But Stephens did not want to wait, taking his McNuggets and speeding out of the auto park, almost hitting Gail Wheeler, 54, a retail operations manager from Erie who was on her way home from shopping. She said state troopers weren't far behind. "It was loud and distinctive", Ms Wheeler said. "Just to know that I will never ever hear my father's voice again is devastating", Baines said.

Police do not know if anyone was harboring Stephens, Williams said.
The officer closest to the auto "just shook his head", she said. "They had their guns out, but when he shook his head, they lowered their guns".
Facebook wasn't made aware of a live video containing Stephens' confession until after it had ended, Osofsky said. Facebook called the shooting "a horrific crime" in an earlier statement Monday.
Facebook said it removed the video of the shooting 23 minutes after learning of it.
A source close to Facebook says it has "thousands" of people reviewing content around the world.
"We basically told him it would be a minute for his fries, which it wasn't really, we were just trying to make sure she got in contact with state police", Ducharme said. Godwin did not seem to recognize the name.

The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to a TV news channel that "we had been in a relationship for several years". In his video, he said he was looking for someone to kill and settled on Godwin apparently at random.
