South Korean police have admitted using violence to extract a false confession from a man who spent 20 years in prison for the rape and murder of a 13-year-old.

Yoon — whose full name is not being published due to a South Korean law that protects the privacy of suspects and criminals — was the only person ever convicted of the so-called Hwaseong murders, one of South Korea’s most infamous serial killing cases. He was released in 2008 after spending 20 years in prison for the rape and murder of a 13-year-old in 1988, with police suspecting that the case was a copycat killing.
