Unbelievable!

Trevell Coleman, who rapped under the name G-Dep, and was signed to a five-album deal with Diddy's Bad Boy Records in 1998, has reportedly admitted to an unsolved murder in Harlem that happened 17 YEARS AGO.

The rapper is said to have walked into the 25th Precinct in NYC on Wednesday night and said:

"I shot and killed someone 17 years ago."

According to Coleman, the crime took place in 1993, and he attempted to rob John Henkel, 32 at the time, and when the man resisted, he shot and killed him. He fled the scene and threw the weapon into the East River.

A source with authorities explains:

"It was just eating away at him."

He has since been charged with murder and is being held without bail.

Just shocking!

Although it's a horrible and extremely ugly situation, we're glad that he took responsibility for his actions and is willingly accepting those consequences.

Hopefully the victims family can finally have some closure.

Thoughts??

    WHY IS IT "SHOCKING"?? CUZ HE TOLD THE TRUTH??? WE KNOW FAT BOY WOULDNT. JUST LIKE WHEN HE WAS BITCH SLAPPED BY THE BEP'S HE BLAMED EVERYONE ELSE EXCEPT HIMSELF! MORE RESPECT FOR TREVELL COLEMAN THAN PEREZ.

    Let's hope he is strapped down and injected with poison and that it won't take 17 years. The sooner this worthless & disgusting piece of filth is exterminated the better. Gee, a "gangsta rapper" who kills people.

    Rap is swill that denigrates African Americans & romanticizes blood thirtsy killers & human scum!

    I hope this guy is tossed into Hell's worst sulfur pit where he can scream with agony for all eternity.

    One can hope.

    sort of reminds me of a skateboarding friend, in post friendship years was talking about "taking responsibility" i demand justice and already has an arrest? room 108 awaits for me i suppose at city hall, where a private school chum works ruling the mayor…

    Wow. That took courage, even if it did take 17 years. Maybe now the victims family can get some closure, and Trevell can eventually find some peace of mind.

    As bad as what he did, as least he took responsibility. Shows he is remorseful and has a conscience. I could only wish other murderers and rapists could learn from him and speak up. Believe it or not but the courts tend to have a little more mercy on those that take responsibility and show true remorse and regret.

    there was the interstate commerce clause for a while. now, they have the opposite extreme. yeah i was yelling "they can just use 1 bullet" thirty ought six and snipe me dead

    parabellum!

    Well the small piece of soul that finally made him own up will shrivel and die in prison. Peace to the victims family

    He is pretty dumb. If after 17 years the guilt didn't go away, serving some meaningless time in jail won't either. It won't go away so u might as well be free.

    john henkel sounds like a white name? sounds like a hate crime to me!

    wow

    Re: maxconrad – You are a very disturbed individual and need help.

    Wow he must be the stoopiediest (stupidest) man in the WORLD.



  14. 14

    Wow. This is a pretty amazing story. How come I'm only hearing about it on a gossip site?

    CC and Shay: You're both crazy. He absolutely did the right thing and he will not only get peace of mind, but the courts will show leniency for his admission. This is an amazing story. I don't pray much, but I will pray that the courts do show him mercy. I'm really touched by this act. Angels will come forward and help him get through this. Wow. Mr. Coleman you have got right with god and mercy will be shown in this life and the hereafter. Wow. Just wow.

    Re: Alasen – Why? For hoping a MURDERER is severly punished? He took a human life for no reason. Can you tell me a worse crime? I don't give two toenail clippings if he's remorseful. I hope his sleep is tormented with nightmares. I have no symapthy for murderers.

    Do you? If so, WHY?

    He must have been very young - this says something about the man he is now and his character. Sometimes mental prison is just as harsh as physical prison. What a sad situation. I hope they take his accepting responsibility into consideration…

    Was this around the time when p. diddy (puff daddy at the time) got into gun trouble as well….sounds fitting for the time period. "Diddy" probably told him to chuck the gun into the river. FAIL.



  18. 18

    this retarded if he got away with it. and he feels bad them do good things with all the money you made.

    this is america land of the punish everyone to the fullest extent of the law so i can make da or gov some day i will kill all you motherfucker just for standing by someone getting killed by another person.

    i would say let him go but he asked them to kill him



  19. 19

    All these rappers have shot and killed at least one person in their lifetime. Isn't that a prerequisite?

    Re: maxconrad – People change. I am not the same person I was 15 years ago, I would have made different choices today. When we are young we do so many stupid things. Murder of course being an extreme but we are a blank page, so easily influenced. Only later, when we get older (some never) we start seeing our decisions in a more objective light. We see how that blank page got writen all over by what friends said, media etc.. But in the end, you must never listen to that/others but your gut. And this guy obviously knows right from wrong but growing up in Harlem in the 80s he got pulled into some bad crowd and bad situations. I do not think he is a bad person, and I think he can do good.
