Man bursts into church and confesses to cold case murder

A man barged into a Connecticut church and confessed to worshipers that he was the fiend who killed a Hartford jogger four years ago — a cold case that’s confounded cops.

Michael Trazinski, the pastor at Open Gate Ministries in East Granby, told ABC News on Monday that he and the handful of parishioners with him knew what they had to do after William Leverett told them that he stabbed mom of two Melissa Millan in 2014.

“Justice needed to be done,” Trazinski said of Leverett’s Sept. 19 confession.

So the pastor and two other people took 27-year-old Leverett to the Simsbury Police Department to turn himself in. ...

Thanks Frank for all the additional firsthand information, gained by real life experience. And to think, bro, that you could still have been hooked in to such a system, without the grace of the Lord doing a big rescue job and bringing you out into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Of course the Lord has to bring each one of us out of darkness into his glorious light, but there is something about religious darkness that is so strong and binding; Hinduism, Buddhism, Roman Catholicism, Islam etc.

Many on these threads have testified of relatives bound up like captives in the RCC, for whom they grieve and earnestly desire of the Lord their deliverance. It is only he can do it. And it takes a resurrection from the dead, a new birth, and the glorious gospel of free grace in Christ Jesus spoken through poor, earthen vessels like ourselves.

To the Lord be glory.

It is interesting that this man wound up in a church rather than some other public gathering place, like a library, a fire station, or even the local police station. Did his demons drive him there or was the remaining part of his sanity looking, even subconsciously, for a relief from the demons? It would seem, then, that there was a spiritual piece of this action at some level.

When Jesus and His disciples were approached by the possessed man in the region of the Gadarenes, there was clearly a driving motivation for the man to first approach. Mark 5:6 tells us that "when the [man] saw Jesus afar off, he ran, and worshipped [Jesus]." Perhaps Mr. Trazinski was acting somewhat alike as this man (Matthew said it was two men)? Very hard to say, and I tend to agree with Chris in my pessimism. But I do have hope.

The below paragraph is typically heard during a confession.

May our Lord Jesus Christ absolve you; and by His authority I absolve you from every bond of excommunication (suspension) and interdict, so far as my power allows and your needs require. [making the Sign of the Cross:] Thereupon, I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Yes, brother that is exactly what happens in their confessionals. I spent hours in them as a youth. Notice in the above that the priest actually uses the words “I absolve” you. The RCC will attempt to spin this, but all of us ex-catholics who have been to these confessions know the truth. Of course scripture teaches that only God can absolve someone from sin and that is why they wanted to murder the Lord.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

What this means is catholics have a false sense of security. If they confess all their mortal sins, then they simply have to go to purgatory as “all” catholics must. I call that the safety in numbers principle.

Thank goodness...another very disturbed human being locked up tight for the rest of his life. I'm glad he confessed, but his confession means nothing to me. An initial story on this has him saying that he couldn't take the voices in his head any longer, so had to come clean. I don't see him as being overcome with guilt, but rather, being worn down by wondering if they're gonna find out it was him, and looking over his shoulder 24/7 for the last 4yrs. Pedophile, and se*xal deviant who was just running scared, as opposed to the shame, and a genuine guilt over the senseless rape, I'm assuming, and murder of a helpless, unsuspecting woman, and leaving her family broken.
Now, he goes to prison, and will probably find the prison Jesus that so many others claim to have done, until they're released, when they tend to forget all about it.
Yes, I'm being very pessimistic, but do hope that the repercussions of his heinous crimes will lead to life eternal, and that life in prison will be his rock bottom needed to get the scales to fall from his eyes.

One can only hope that he was stirred to repentance and that this church will continue a Gospel link with him in jail, and that he will indeed be truly converted and born again.

However, along with that he must accept the judgment of the court, which if it is not the death penalty, in most US states it is life imprisonment without parole, or occasionally a very long term of decades in prison before there is any chance of parole.

We in Britain, unfortunately, have a much more lax system, because though “life imprisonment” is mandatory for murder, in practice a judge sets a tariff of so many years that the prisoner must serve before parole is considered, and then on admission of guilt, the Parole Board can free the prisoner under fairly strict conditions, and he will be on “licence” for the rest of his life, which means if he breaches any of the conditions, he can be returned to jail immediately.

He will also have certain restrictions that will apply to him for life, and he will be barred from a number of occupations, and foreign travel to many countries would of course be out of the question, as their laws would ban him from entry.

Having said that, there have been some woeful cases of people being freed who should never have been released, and they have committed furt

In countless films or dramas, someone committing a crime would go into a RC let's-get-rid-of-your-guilt Centre, and ask the priest for Confession, offloading anything and everything, and paying the debt with a few prayers or some other meaningless penance, and the priest would not have to reveal one word of what was said, not to the police, not to his wife, nobody.

Maybe this villain went into the wrong building.
