“Murdered” Woman Discovered 31 Years Later
Petra Pazsitka, a young student was supposedly last seen going to the dentist on July 26, 1984. Then ensued a search for her.
In 1985 a man named Gunter K, was arrested and confessed to the murder of different teenage girl. In 1987 he also admitted to killing Pazsitka, and she was officially declared dead in 1989.
Fast forward 31 years, Pazsitka who was living with a false name in Dusseldorf two weeks ago was discovered by police during an investigation of a burglary.

Turns out the woman had orchestrated he own disappearance.

And why she decided to disappear in the first place?

The woman has refused to disclose. She wants no contact with the public or her family.
Sounds like Serial needs to do a podcast on THIS LADY.

As for the man that confessed to her murder?

Well, nothing is being done about him yet, but you he can apply for parole after 15 years of a life sentence in Germany. Though considering he already confessed to the murder of another, it seems not much can be done.
And why he confessed to it? We may also may never know.

@marshalledgar it's rare to be sure. It's a slow, frustrating process. I think that things get better, but it often takes a long time. And while we're waiting, things like this happen :(
It’s crazy how much mental illness and the prison system overlap! it’s really a problem in our nation, I think @shannonl5
@nicolejb it absolutely is. People with mental illnesses often don't have the resources that they need to take care of themselves. It can be incredibly expensive just for starters. And often people in law enforcement don't have the training to support them either. Which means that when there is an issue (rare, but it does happen), the situation ends up escalating instead of ending safely for everyone. A lot of people in the prison system have mental illnesses that are not being cared for at all, may are survivors of domestic violence and they are simply not being given the care that they need. It's horrible. (Sorry for leaving such a long comment, this is something I'm extremely passionate about).
no, thank you! it’s worth being passionate about. It’s a very big problem (for both sides involved). Cops could do their job a lot better with some training, and America could do a lot better at making mental health a priority by creating better systems for affordable healthcare @shannonl5
@nicolejb this is so true. We've come a long way for sure, but there is still a very long way to go
