Odd Doings In Dusseldorf

From the annals of false convictions:

"A German woman who vanished 31 years ago and had been registered as dead after a man confessed to her murder, has been found alive and well and living in Düsseldorf."

I wonder how this "confession" occurred.
In retrospect it's clearly absurd.

The person who confessed, who is "known only as Gunther K," also confessed to another murder.

What? Known only as Gunther K? What kind of country convicts people of murder but doesn't release their names? Germany, I take it.

I'm hoping this other murder, of a 14 year old girl, actually involved finding a body.

Did this guy just like to confess?
You charge him, and he says "Yes!"?
