Steve Stephens' last act before taking his own life was to stop at a McDonald's and order chicken nuggets and fries. According to, it was an McDonald's employee who recognized Stephens:

"Employees at the McDonald’s on Buffalo Road, in Harborcreek Township, said a drive-through attendant alerted state police when Stephens stopped at the restaurant’s drive-through window shortly after 11 a.m."

Pennsylvania State Police say Stephens "was spotted just after 11 a.m. this morning by an alert citizen near the intersection of Buffalo Road and Downing Avenue in Erie County, Pennsylvania, which is less than two miles from PSP Troop E headquarters."
