Britain’s Most Notorious Serial Killer Dies in Prison at 79

IAN BRADY. THE MONSTER HAS DIED.

Boy meets girl. Boy and girl kill five innocent youths. Both die in prison.

That’s the story of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. Myra left this planet in 2002, while Ian checked out yesterday.

And small celebrations were held in Britain by the families of the victims.

Moors murderer Ian Brady, who killed five children alongside Myra Hindley, has died aged 79.

The pair carried out the murders from 1963 to 1965, snatching youngsters off the street before sexually assaulting their victims and burying many of their bodies on Saddleworth Moor in the south Pennines.

When he was sentenced in 1966, the judge said he was “wicked beyond belief”.

The couple’s five victims – Pauline Reade, John Kilbride, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans – were aged between 10 and 17.

Fifty years on, one of the victims, 12-year-old Keith Bennett, has still never been found – despite the belief that Brady knew the location and buried him on the Moors, where he buried three others.

Brady’s death comes hours after he was again urged to “do the right thing” and reveal the location of the Keith’s body.

Keith’s mother, Winnie Johnson, had repeatedly pleaded with Brady to say where he disposed of the body before her own death in 2012.

The Brady/Hindley trial heard tape recordings of the torture of another victim, 10-year-old Lesley Ann Downey, in which she was heard begging for mercy.

The jury was also shown naked pictures taken of her before she died.

The details that came out in the trial and Brady’s refusal to accommodate Ms Johnson’s last wish led to the pair being regarded as among Britain’s most notorious serial killers.
