Two workers at the Erie, Pennsylvania McDonald's where "Facebook Live Killer" Steve Stephens was spotted before being chased by cops and ultimately shooting himself dead helped put an end to the manhunt. They did so by stalling Stephens after recognizing him by telling the man his fries weren't ready.
Naturally, when Stephens was caught, a question arose: are the McDonald's employees entitled to the $50,000 reward that was being offered for any information that led to the arrest or capture of "The Facebook Live Killer"?

Why is it a debate if these McDonald's employees get the reward or not?! THEY HELPED GET A MURDERER OFF THE STREETS— Lamar Johnson (@Lamar28) April 19, 2017
Never judge someone for where they work. A McDonald's employee tipped off police to catch steve stephens. They deserve the 50,000 reward.— RyansAverageLife (@RyanAbe) April 18, 2017
Local law enforcement also said that the employees at the McDonald's were an integral part in cornering Stephens, but at this time, it's unclear as to whether or not one or more of the workers will receive the $50,000 reward offered by the FBI, ATF, and U.S. Marshal Service.
Do you think they deserve the reward? (h/t wnep)
