Adding a bizarre twist to an already strange story, former Bad Boy artist G-Dep is now saying he didn’t know the man he confessed to shooting 17 years ago had actually died.
In an interview with the New York Post, the troubled rapper seems to hint that he thought he would be walking out of the precinct after the confession.
“I was surprised, for some reason I didn’t think that he died. When they [police] told me I was like, ‘Oh I’m not going home after this,’” he said.
As if the police would have let him just go on his merry way after confessing to shooting a man three times during a botched robbery.
When the story first broke Dep’s lawyer, Michael Alperstein told the Post the rapper should not be presumed guilty.
“My client is presumed innocent, and the case is going to a grand jury,” Alperstein said.
Proving his innocence is going to be almost impossible, he knew details about the crime only the killer would know according to police.
After sitting in jail for several days, maybe the realization that he may never see the free world again is setting in on Dep. But he says he talked things over with his mother and girlfriend before going to the police station.
“I told my mom and my girlfriend that I wanted to confess and they both told me to leave it in the past. My girlfriend is pretty peeved,” the former chart topping rapper admitted. “I thought if I turned myself in it might give me closure, I’m just trying to get right with God. The only thing I regret is that I have to leave my kids.”
Dep has three children with Lyvonnia Crawford.
Bottom line is he killed John Henkel on the night of October 19, 1993, now he’ll most likely have to pay for it.
