Checking in from the Murder She Wrote files, former Bad Boy G-Dep sits down with ABC’s Nightline to discuss his decision to come forward and confess to the 1993 murder that currently has him behind bars. According to Dep, he had to confess not once, but twice before the cops would take his admission seriously.
“In late 2010, Coleman, then 37, couldn’t bear it anymore. He went to the police and told an officer he had shot a man 16 years before.
“The police did nothing.
“‘I guess he just felt like it was so outlandish, so he was like, ‘Listen, that was a long time ago. Give me your number and I’ll call you,’” Coleman said.
“Two weeks later, he went back to the police to confess again.
“‘I think I was just at a point where enough is enough,’ Coleman said. ‘It never went away, me thinking about it, so it was like I had to do something about it.’”
In May 2012, Dep was sentenced to 15 years to life.
