Actually, the article (and its source, which was *not* the show's promotional material) have both been amended to acknowledge that the character's alleged name is not actually used in the show. (For what it's worth, I've seen all ten episodes.)

Oh, and there's no Rashomon vibe here. This series is *not* about people reporting multiple contradictory versions of the same event. It's about a mystery that people interpret in different ways, yes, but that's a completely different thing.
