.- The Houston Chronicle reported on Thursday that a case of apparent suicide has been ruled a murder after a 21-year-old man decided to confess his “perfect crime” after watching “The Passion of the Christ.”

Detectives say the death of a 19-year-old woman originally ruled a suicide has turned into a murder case after the repentant man confessed to killing her because she was carrying his child.

Detective Mike Kubricht of Fort Bend revealed that investigators thought Ashley Nicole Wilson had hanged herself in January.   However, Dan R. Leach of Rosenberg turned himself in after watching Mel Gibson’s movie and deciding to “seek redemption.”

The young woman's body was found by her mother on January 19 in her Richmond-area apartment. The Harris County Medical Examiner ruled her death a suicide caused by asphyxia due to external compression with a ligature.  But on March 7, Leach, who had known the victim for many years, walked into the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Department headquarters and confessed to killing her.
