The Passion Confession

(AP - Aug 09, 2004 - RICHMOND, TX)

Dan Leach II has allegedly said viewing the movie "The Passion of the Christ" prompted him to confess to the killing and making it appear as a suicide. The 21-year-old suspect later pleaded innocent. ...

Police videotaped Leach's confession that prosecutors expected to admit during the trial. Police say Leach told them he strangled Wilson because she was pregnant with his child and wanted nothing to do with the mother or the unborn baby.

A medical exam done by an obstetrician days before Wilson's death showed she was pregnant, but an autopsy found no evidence of pregnancy.
