This is insane. I guess the guilt caught up with him. Bold move because he is pretty much volunteering to spend at least 15 years in prsion. Probably more. Maybe three hots and a cot ain’t a bad look though. According to the NY Post:
- Wednesday night, after years of living with the burden, Coleman, 36, walked into the 25th Precinct and shockingly confessed to the very cold case, the sources said.
The career criminal — once signed to superstar rap mogul Shawn “Diddy” Combs’ record label — was just 18 when he fatally shot a Queens man outside an East Harlem housing project in 1993, police sources said.
“I shot and killed someone 17 years ago,” Coleman told a cop in the station house.As Coleman continued to reveal more details of the Oct. 19, 1993, murder of John Henkel outside the James Weldon Johnson Houses — things only the killer would know — the officer reached out to investigators at the 23rd Precinct, where the crime took place.
“It was just eating away at him,” said a police source.
Coleman, who grew up in the projects, told cops he was riding a bike when he rolled up on Henkel, 32, on Park Avenue and East 114th Street and announced a robbery.
