Matthew Gibson, a 55-year-old North Carolina man, finally came clean about a 1997 murder he committed after receiving some texts from Walmart.
Say what now?
Gibson, 55, showed up in Arizona's Winslow Police Department, where Det. Alicia Marquez discovered him "sitting in the lobby, scared and sobbing."
"He wanted to talk about crime he committed more than a decade before," Martinez said, and he recalled meeting a woman one night in Bullhead City, Ariz.
They went back to his trailer, where she became "loud and obnoxious" and he asked her to leave. When she refused, Gibson "bludgeoned her to death."
Using a Maglite flashlight, he killed her just like that, then threw her body into the Colorado River, where he buried his secret, seemingly for good.
Until Walmart texted. And called. And even sent a hard copy of a letter saying that a prescription for Anita Townshed was ready for pickup, anytime.
