When Stephens ordered, the employee stalled by giving him his chicken nuggets but told him his fries weren't ready yet.
"I can't sleep", Godwin's sister said.
Police said they believe Stephens acted alone. Stephens pulled up to the next window, where restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr. and a supervisor tried stalling him by telling him his fries were delayed.
"I don't want that man to die, I want him brought to justice", one of Godwin's sons, Robby Miller, told CNN.
"He looked like he was a little nerved up, a little agitated, and then just didn't want to wait".
Despite Stephen's death, authorities say that they are continuing to investigate. Police said Stephens might be driving a white or cream-colored Ford Fusion, and asked anyone who spots him or his vehicle to call police or a special Federal Bureau of Investigation hot line (800-CALLFBI). Cleveland police said th.
Authorities said Godwin is the only known victim despite an extensive investigation into Stephens's claims to have killed others.
Lane also said she has received support from many, including her family, her boss, and even strangers like two daughters of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr., who police say Stephens gunned down on Easter.
The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens's vehicle was in the McDonald's auto park in Erie, in the north-western corner of the state, about 100 miles east of Cleveland, authorities said.
That is the question following Sunday's horrific murder which was posted to Facebook and then shared around the world. He killed himself Tuesday when police attempted to pull his vehicle over in Pennsylvania.
The criticism of Facebook over Mr Stephens' video has built swiftly, with outrage spreading on social media over how long it had taken - more than two hours - for the video to be pulled down. The video was eventually taken down. At a Silicon Valley conference Tuesday afternoon, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg briefly mentioned the Cleveland case. The company had said after Sunday's slaying that it is launching a review for reporting harmful content. She said the chase slowed suddenly from 50 miles per hour to about 20 miles per hour when the road narrowed from four lanes to two.
In the video, Stephens told Mr Godwin the name of his girlfriend and said: "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you".
"I'm thinking at that point he might have been thinking someone in the store recognized him, and he was trying to get out of here", Ducharme said.
Within a day, authorities expanded the search nationwide and offered a 50,000 dollar (£39,000) reward for information leading to his capture.
