It seems not too long ago that the 1960s were with us, but to some bereaved families it must feel like forever, as they have lived the sorrow of having lost a loved one, a child, to the cruel pair of murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley.

They held a reign of terror enticing and trapping such vulnerable young children. Then the barbaric forms of torture exercised upon these vulnerable souls, before being buried on the Yorkshire Moors, made this news unbearable to hear throughout the country, so devastating it must have been for the relatives.

These horrific murders shocked and terrified everyone. Films and dramas have since been made about the events, but to be frank, it is a sad thing to watch.

Obviously, certain details were only known by the Police (whether they ‘spared’ the victims’ families some aspects to obviate further mental trauma may well be the case).

Apparently Brady and Hindley tape recorded some of the moments of torture and detectives admitted they cried listening to the evidence, one child desperately calling for their mummy.

A number of years prior to these crimes, hanging was abolished in the UK, otherwise this couple would most certainly have been hung. Many called for hanging to return.

Myra Hindley died some years ago, now Ian Brady following recent reports of being gravely ill, has passed away.

Keith Bennett, a young boy, was murdered by this couple, and his Mother, now deceased herself, begged to learn what they had done with her Son’s body so she could bury him, but the pair would not disclose that information. He was somewhere on the Yorkshire Moors.

When it was announced that Brady’s health had declined there were further calls asking for him not to take that information to the grave.

Could someone so mad, sick or evil, do one good thing before he died?; apparently not.
