"Deathbed" Confessor Recovers, Charged for Murder

James Brewer thought he was on his deathbed following a stroke. Desperate to enter Heaven and die with a clear conscience, Brewer confessed to shooting a 20-year old neighbor some 32 years ago. Then he made a miraculous recovery.

Brewer explained how he shot and killed 20-year old neighbor, Jimmy Carroll in 1977. He was even charged for the crime, but he jumped bail and fled Tennessee for Oklahoma. Brewer changed his name to Michael Anderson and lived with his wife for 32 years before the stroke landed him in the hospital. He had thought Carroll was trying to seduce his wife.

Anderson, nee Brewer, surrendered to Tennessee police.
