Former Bad Boy Entertainment recording artist, G-Dep, who reached the highs of fame back in 2001, with the release of “Lets Get It” and “Special Delivery”, has confessed to murdering a man over 17 years ago. The New York Post are reporting that, G-Dep, who real name is Trevell Michael Coleman, walked into a New York police station, on Wednesday and confessed to the murder.
The career criminal — once signed to superstar rap mogul Sean “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.
Coleman told Detective William Dunn that Henkel resisted and grabbed his .40-caliber gun. He allegedly admitted that he pulled away and shot his victim three times in the chest. Coleman said he fled and tossed the weapon into the East River.
Henkel was rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. When the detective reviewed the cold-case file, he was amazed to discover that Coleman’s tale matched up.Coleman, who has racked up more than 25 arrests since 2003 for drugs, burglary and grand larceny, was charged with murder, and is being held without bail.
“My client is presumed innocent, and the case is going to grand jury,” said Coleman’s lawyer, Michael Alperstein.
Talk about shocking… Could this be the reason behind G-Dep’s drug addiction, to which he confessed to last year (see below).
