Whited allegedly said he didn’t know the victim’s name or even the exact year, so Mukaddam had to place him on hold multiple times to search the department’s homicide chart, the detective said.

Eventually, Mukaddam and his colleagues narrowed the case down to Dailey’s unsolved murder.

“We asked him questions only someone involved in the murder would know, stuff that was held back from the public,” Mukaddam said.

“He started to say certain things, and we realized we needed to meet,” the detective said.

“He came to us and hopped in the back of a patrol car,” Mukaddam recalled. “He led us to the crime scene, saying, ‘Turn right, turn left.’ Then we walked a quarter mile, and he took us exactly to the crime scene.”

Whited allegedly told the detectives how he shot Dailey and “gave specifics” on a vehicle involved in the case.

“He is terminally ill. He was remorseful,” Mukaddam said. “He was ready to meet his maker and wanted to make everything right and give the family closure.”

He said Whited explained his motive for the murder, but law enforcement is waiting to share those details as the case moves to the courts.

“They did not know each other, and it was not much time after their meeting that the shooting occurred,” Mukaddam told The News, declining to elaborate.

Whited was arrested Wednesday and remained in custody Friday, online jail records confirmed.

Mukaddam praised the detectives who originally worked on Dailey’s death investigation, saying he and his colleagues were able to quickly corroborate Whited’s story because they had such a great case file to consult.

“The investigator did an amazing job years ago,” he said. “I just wrote the last page and shut the book on their story.”

Attempts to reach a lawyer for Whited were not immediately successful Friday.

Watch: Las Vegas Raiders go with James Harden audible .
We’ve heard some pretty awesome audibles around the NFL in recent years. But this certainly has to take the cake. Like clockwork, the Raiders decided against passing the ball. Rather, they handed it off to Devontae Booker for a gain of six yards. For his part, Harden’s ears have to be buzzing with him now trending on Twitter. Don’t worry, Rockets fans, this does not mean he’s been traded to Las Vegas. That would be rather odd considering that the city lacks an NBA team.As some of you might already know, Mr. Harden has demanded a trade from the Rockets this offseason.
