Man Confessed Four Times To Murdering a Nurse’s Aide, 30 Years Later Police Finally Arrest Him Michigan police arrested Michael Leon Curry in California on March 17 in connection with an alleged murder Curry admitted to in 1986. While in questioning, Curry told investigators he committed the murder. He even admitted to the crime in a signed letter that was turned over to police. Curry was not charged then, however, and was set free. Curry was arrested and imprisoned for another crime soon after: unarmed robbery. He kept saying he killed the nurse’s aide and told his cellmate of the crime. Curry was still referencing the alleged 1986 murder as recently as last year. By then, police considered the murder a three decade-old cold case. Curry told investigators he killed Wilkinson and gave specific details of the crime, such as how he allegedly killed her and the color of her underwear. Investigators did not believe Curry’s admission. Curry had no clear memory of other parts of the crime. He also walked back and denied entire parts of his testimony while taking a polygraph.
