BBC News Presenter Shocking On-Air Confession: “I Killed Someone Once”

February 16th, 2010

Just when you thought you’d seen it all. BBC News Presenter Ray Gosling found an odd, yet strangely poignant time to admit to killing his former lover who was dying of AIDS – while hosting a BBC documentary on death and dying. Police are now investigating the admission, and an online debate is now raging on whether or not this was assisted suicide or murder. The stunning video admission is below.

BBC UK reports:

Police are investigating after the Nottingham film-maker said he had a pact with the deceased man to act if his suffering increased.

During a documentary on death and dying, Ray Gosling, 70, said: “I killed someone once. He’d been my lover and he got Aids.

“I picked up the pillow and smothered him until he was dead. No regrets.”

Mr. Gosling said he smothered his former lover while he was in a hospital – which he did not name – after doctors told him that there was nothing further that could be done for him.
