    "Passion" movie brings MURDER admission... after coroner ruled it suicide

    A coroner had ruled her death by hanging a suicide,

    Wilson's body was discovered Jan. 19 in her apartment near Richmond, southwest of Houston. All physical evidence pointed to suicide, Kubricht said, and the 19-year-old had gone off anti-depressant medications because she was pregnant.

    The pregnancy apparently was the motive, Kubricht said, because Leach believed he was responsible and did not want to raise a child.

    Leach, 21, wore gloves and left none of his own DNA behind, Kubricht said.

    "He was very, very meticulous," Kubricht said. "It was very well-planned and well executed."

    From August 2004:


    A man who said the movie "The Passion of the Christ" prompted him to confess to strangling his girlfriend has been sentenced to 75 years in prison.

    The sentence delivered by a jury on Friday came after Dan Leach II told the court that one reason he confessed was because he didn't want Ashley Nicole Wilson's family to believe that she hanged herself. The 19-year-old's death had been ruled a suicide before Leach confessed...

    Leach said in his confession to police that he killed Wilson because she was pregnant with his child and he did not want to have anything to do with her.
