On Tuesday, a drunken driver by the name of Matthew Cordle, who suffers from depression, took to YouTube to confess that he killed a man while driving under the influence in a car crash stemming from June and he’s willing to take “full responsibility.”
“My name is Matthew Cordle, and on June 22nd, 2013, I hit and killed Vincent Canzani,” he says somberly. “This video will act as my confession.”
“When I get charged I’ll plead guilty and take full responsibility for everything I’ve done to Vincent and his family,” Cordle says.
Later, he says he understands that by releasing the video he’s giving prosecutors “everything they need to put me away for a very long time.”
Police (in June) said Canzani, of Ghana died on the scene after his Jeep was struck on Interstate 670.
“Homicide charges may be filed next week,” said O’Brien on Friday.
Cordle also ends the video saying:
“I can’t bring Mr. Canzani back, and I can’t erase what I’ve done, but you can still be saved. Your victims can still be saved. So, please,” Cordle says before a message appears on the darkened screen: “make the promise to never drink and drive.”
