How about this? A man confesses to a murder after thinking he is dying, then he recovers. Now he faces being charged for the crime.

'Deathbed confession' man charged

A US man who thought he was dying and confessed to having killed a neighbour in 1977 has been charged with murder after making a recovery, US media say.

James Brewer could now face the death penalty over the unsolved killing in Tennessee 32 years ago, reports say.

Convinced he was dying after a stroke, Mr Brewer reportedly admitted to police he shot dead 20-year-old Jimmy Carroll.

The 58-year-old, who had fled Tennessee after the killing, was arrested after his condition improved, reports say

This is funny. We used to have cameras in our trauma rooms. The tapes were used as training tapes and then destroyed. Once, we had some guy come in and during his care in the trauma room he admitted to shooting someone. The police wanted the tape. The hospital held out that this was not for public use. They got a court order and we gave them the tape after a bunch of legal rambling. We got rid of the cameras after that.

I've never had anyone confess to a crime, but I've had patients confess things to me or otherwise pour out their hearts, especially when I worked nightshift.

Silly fool. If you are going to kill someone NEVER, EVER tell anyone.

If you are worried about karma or your soul or whatnot that's easy too...

DON'T KILL ANYONE.

They should fry this guy.

Actually, I think the stroke (if debilitating enough), is a fitting punishment. It will probably cause him a lot more suffering than gas or death by IV... just a thought.

Tell that to the victim's family...

Dying by gas is pretty horrible...

As to the IV, they could accidentally on purpose infiltrate the IV like in Florida...

Nah, they shouldn't do that, I'm just on a murderous bent today. :D

It does seem to be a night-shift thing, doesn't it?

I've had pts confess marital infidelity, family secrets, and the like to me on nights, too.
