Police say man confessed to 20 year old murder

(Cuyahoga County) - A Cleveland man has confessed to committing a murder 20 years ago. 

Fifty-four year old Michael Thompson is charged with aggravated murder. 

Investigators claim Thompson told them he killed a prostitute, and buried her body near Train and Richner Avenues in Cleveland's Stockyard neighborhood, two decades ago. That's where FBI agents discovered the body. 

Detectives say Thompson made the confession after suffering a chronic illness, and requested that Cleveland police officers come to his home.
