This one is so funny I just have to put it up.
James Washington, pictured above had been suspected of murdering Joyce Goodener , who was found stabbed in the neck, beaten to death with a cinderblock and set on fire in an abandoned Nashville, Tennessee house 17 years ago.
But there was no evidence, so he was never convicted.
Washington was incarcerated for a different crime, and had a heart attack while in prison. Figuring he was about to meet his Maker, he decided to confess to a prison guard who was nearby:
'He kind of got as best as he could, motioned, and said "I have something to tell you. I have to get something off my conscience and you need to hear this,"' said transport guard James Tomlinson.
'He said "I killed somebody. I beat her to death,"' Mr Tomlinson added.
Only problem was, after ratting himself out,Washington survived.
He's been convicted, and could receive up to a 51 year sentence, which essentially means he would die in prison.
Who says G-d doesn't have a sense of humor?
