A 1993 robbery in East Harlem, N.Y., resulted in the shooting death of victim John Henkel. The case went cold as ice: no weapon; no witnesses. In December 2010, though, conscience finally got the better of the shooter, who walked into the 25th precinct in Harlem and confessed to the shooting. Police were as surprised by the confession as they were by the shooter's identity: Trevell Coleman (pictured), better known as locally prominent rapper G-Dep, formerly signed to Sean "Diddy" Combs' Bad Boys Records. Coleman, who didn't know Henkel had died, was also in for a surprise when police charged him with murder. He had amassed over 25 arrests since 1993 on various drug and robbery charges told and the media. "I'm just trying to get right with God."
