It was quite clear the confessor had some mental issues but the details always came from the cops, not from him.
The real problem is that the cops were not inexperienced interrogators, they know to make sure the facts come from the suspect, not from them. The strangulation by belt had been withheld from the newspapers at the time just to be able to exclude false confessors ... but later the police department was coming under criticism for an unsolved homicide.
Anyone wonder how a slightly built seventeen year old youth turned over a 315 pound man and removed his belt? Or how a slightly built youth won a long drawn out fight that left blood all over the area?
