http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...s/6360919.htmlA 17-year-old cold case murder was solved with the confession of a killer just moments from the death chamber.
Luis Cervantes Salazar was executed last month for the stabbing murder of a woman in October 1997. But shortly before his death, he was encouraged by his spiritual counselor to speak with Texas Rangers about other crimes he committed.
He confessed to the 1992 stabbing of a convenience store clerk in San Antonio, just an hour and a half before he was executed.
San Antonio police say his confession solved the murder of Melissa Morales. Salazar had not previously been considered a suspect.
