Rapper G. Dep Confesses to Murder after 17 Years

| December 18, 2010 | 0 Comments


Former Bad Boy recording artist Trevell Coleman aka G Dep walked into a New York City Police Precinct and allegedly confessed to a armed robbery that ended up in the death of another man. Cold Case detectives determined after hearing the rapper’s revelations that there was enough credible evidence to make an arrest.

Even though it took close to two decades for him to confess to the crime…there is no statute of limitation for murder.

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.

Coleman whose criminal rap sheet was much longer then his short stint with Bad Boy records told cops he had killed Henkel during a botched robbery.

“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.
