COLUMBUS, Ohio -- “I killed a man,” a Columbus man confessed in a video posted on the site "becauseisaidiwould."
The man named Matthew Cordle admits that he was responsible for the drunken driving death of Vincent Canzani on June 22.
“I was trying to have a good time and I lost control,” Cordle says in the video.
Cordle describes blacking out after drinking too much but still deciding to drive home. He says he went the wrong way down the highway, directly into oncoming traffic, hitting a car and killing Canzani.
In the message on the site, Alex Sheen writes that Matthew made the video against legal advice but to raise awareness about the consequences drunken driving can have on innocent people.
“I’m begging you, please don’t drink and drive,” Cordle says. “Don’t make the same excuses I did.”
Cordle says he will plead guilty and take full responsibility when charged in the incident..
“Because I said I would” is a social movement Sheen started to highlight the importance of the dedication to a promise. He made the commitment to walk for Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight to raise awareness for sexual abuse.
Sheen, a Lakewood resident, walked more than 240 miles from Cincinnati to Cleveland for the Seymour Avenue survivors in June.
