Man Makes Deathbed Confession To A Murder..And Then Survives!!

Grim prospects: James Washington was having a heart attack in 2009 when he confessed to a murder dating back to 1995

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?
