You probably saw or read coverage about the massive manhunt in Brevard County for Christopher Eddy. He was accused of shooting a wildlife officer.
The prosecutor’s job in the case got a lot easier after Eddy confessed … on camera to WFTV-Channel 9.
“Why did I shoot the person? Because I felt my freedom was being violated,” he told WFTV.
He was then asked, “Did that warrant shooting somebody?”
“If I wanted to kill him, I could have, but I shot him in his vest on purpose.”
Later, in his first appearance, Eddy pleaded not guilty.
