A terminally ill man has confessed to an unsolved murder that took place 25 years ago. Johnny Dwight Whited "wanted to get it off his chest" according to officers, who say he phoned them and admitted shooting 26-year-old Christopher Alvin Dailey in the head back in 1995.
Officers say Whited, from Trinity, Alabama in the US, was "remorseful" and told police he was dying. Detective Sean Mukaddam told the New York Times about receiving the dramatic call from the 53-year-old. "He said 'I want to confess to a murder that I did years ago'," the officer said. “I’ve never had a situation where I just pick up the phone and have a call like that. “Nothing where the suspect calls me out of the blue and wants to confess.” Detective Mukaddam said Whited
