Stephens kept posting on Facebook hours before his account was eventually shut down.
He shot himself in the head after the auto spun out of control, police said.
Authorities say it's now a nationwide search for 37-year-old Steve Stephens, who's wanted on an aggravated murder charge in the shooting death of a 74-year-old retired man in Cleveland on Sunday.
The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years. I'm not happy what you did, but I forgive you".
"All I can say is that I wish he had gone down in a hail of one hundred bullets", she said.
Yesterday, there were reports that Stephens was spotted in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park area, but police said the reports were unsubstantiated.
The order came through the McDonald's drive-thru window in Harborcreek Township, Pennsylvania: Chicken McNuggets and a side of fries.

According to WKYC's Chris Tye, the manager called Pennsylvania State Police and that Stephens was there.
It was all due to the quick thinking of a McDonald's employee that led police to Steve Stephens.
The police chief said Stephens apparently chose Godwin at random. Stephens' cellphone had been tracked Sunday afternoon near Erie, officials said on Monday. Video of the incident was posted on Facebook. He offered his condolences and reiterated the company's position that it will review its "reporting flows" so that users can flag video and other content that violates its policies.
"This is something that should not have been shared around the world".
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf thanked police for their actions during the pursuit and said that no one else had been hurt.
"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens tells Godwin before pointing a gun at him.
