G. Dep Tried to Confess to Murder Last Summer, NYPD Source Says

Last Wednesday (December 15) wasn’t the first time G. Dep visited cops at Manhattan’s 25th precinct to confess to a 1993 murder.

According to New York’s Daily News, the former Bad Boy rapper attempted to admit to the 17 year old shooting last summer.

A source with the NYPD told the paper that Dep—who has been struggling with drug problems over the last decade—was “high as a kite” when he first entered the precinct. Authorities tried to interview the ex-Diddy protégé but were unsuccessful, and he was able to leave.

As previously reported, the rapper confessed to shooting a man named John Henkel during a botched outside an East Harlem housing project on October 19, 1993 in an effort to clear his conscience. He was unaware that Henkel died.

Dep was indicted for murder charges earlier today (December 21) by a Manhattan grand jury. If convicted, he faces 25 years to life. —Elan Mancini

    I agree with whomever that he manned up and accepted the responsibility, but sometimes you have to take things to the grave with you. Why after 17 years. would you admit what you have done? He really must be trying to get right with God because in the end thats who determines where you spend eternity. I mean 25 years to life and it was 17 years ago, is like him staying in the bing for 8 more years if he was caught back then. Myabe he’d be out for good behavior, but 17 years ago? I applaud G-Dep, but I’m also puzzled about his decision. However, that’s between him and God. I think the drugs played a role in his decision making. Stay up, its your life!
