ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Police release the videotaped confession of convicted killer Ryan Brunn. In the more than hour long video, investigators questioned Brunn, letting him know they wanted his help in case it could help prevent a similar murder from happening.

"It would be to help us learn about what you're thinking, why you did what you did," said the investigator.

What Brunn confessed to was the gruesome murder of Jorelys Rivera. He kidnapped the 7-year-old from her Canton apartment complex where he worked, then killed her. Her body was found in a dumpster days later.

"We need to know if you saw Jorelys and if you noticed that she happened to be one of the children over there more unsupervised than the other children," said the investigator.

"I mean, her house was right there by the playground," said Brunn.

Brunn said he watched child pornography and was attracted to young kids, including Jorelys. He said he found ways to watch them while he worked.

"I didn't pick her out like, I didn't have this thought in my head for two weeks," said Brunn.

"I'm not saying that, but there are some children you take more notice of than others," said the investigator.

"Yeah, she was a cute kid," said Brunn.

Brunn said kidnapping Jorelys was a crime of opportunity. He noticed she dropped her skate.

"I was just working, honestly," said Brunn.

"And then you saw it and then you knew that was an opportunity," said the investigator.

Brunn nodded in agreement.

Brunn said he took the skate and then brought a picture of it to the young girl to lure her in.

"I asked her if it was her skate," said Brunn.

During the interview, Brunn also admitted to touching other children. He committed suicide two days later. He had been sentenced to serve life in prison without the possibility of parole.
