#3. James Brewer Confessed To Killing His Neighbor.
In 1977, James Brewer fled the state of Tennessee after his arrest for murdering his neighbor, Jimmy Carroll. He started a new life with his wife in Oklahoma and took on fake names. Three decades later, as Brewer was in the hospital after suffering from a stroke, he told his wife he wanted to confess his crime before he died. He told police that the secret was laying on his conscience for 30 years. Brewer didn’t end up dying, and was taken in by the authorities.

In 1978, Fritz Moen, a shy deaf man with a severe speech impediment, was wrongly arrested for raping and killing a 20-year old girl in Norway. No forensic evidence linked him to the crimes. It wasn’t until 2005 when a man named Tor Hespo admitted to three nurses on his hospital deathbed that he committed the acts, and Moen was subsequently released.
