Man Confessed Murder on Deathbed, then Got Better

Psst! If youre a criminal and youre considering a deathbed confession, make sure youre actually dying first.

Heres what happened to a man named James Brewer, who thought he was dying and confessed to a murder only to get charged with it after he got better!

Convinced he was dying after a stroke, Mr Brewer reportedly admitted shooting dead 20-year-old neighbour Jimmy Carroll.

The 58-year-old, who had fled Tennessee after the killing, was arrested after his condition improved, reports the BBC.

"He wanted to cleanse his soul, because he thought he was going to the great beyond," said police detective Tony Grasso, who interviewed Mr Brewer in an Oklahoma hospital.
