Johnny Dwight Whited Age
A 53-year-old Alabama man diagnosed with an incurable disease recently came forward to help authorities solve a 25-year-old cold murder case. He telephoned a detective to say that it was he who pulled the trigger.
According to his arrest report received from PEOPLE, Johnny Dwight Whited called the Decatur police on Wednesday to take something away from him.
Whited reportedly shot Christopher Alvin Dailey in 1995 and it was time to speak clearly about it.
The New York Times reports that Whited is terminally ill and spoke to Detective Sean Mukaddam, who allegedly provided specific details about the fatal shots that only the killer could have known.
His account of the murder would also match the evidence gathered at the scene.
Police did not record Dailey’s age on Whited’s arrest report, but did confirm that he was shot once and his death was murder.
The arrest report also mentions that investigators have never been able to identify a suspect in the case.
Whited, a resident of Trinity, was charged with murder. His attorney could not be reached for comment and it was not clear on Friday whether he had been charged in court or asked to bring charges.
He is now being held on bail of $ 15,000.
The arrest report mentions no possible motive for the murder.
Dailey was from Huntsville. A teenager and a young girl exploring a forest for additions to their leaf collection came across Dailey’s remains.
His body was 75 feet from a major forest road.

Whited was awaiting trial on a methamphetamine charge back in May, according to the Fairfield Citizen.
