Talk about ‘Guilty Conscience’. Remember G. Dep, the rapper formerly signed to Diddy’s Bad Boy Records?
17 years after he (Trevell Coleman) fatally shot a Queens man outside an East Harlem housing project, walked into 25th Precinct and confessed to murder on Wednesday night. “I shot and killed someone 17 years ago,” the rapper 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.
