    If he and Myra Hindley had been caught a year earlier, they both would have probably been hanged in 1965.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    From the link above: "A Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust spokesman said: 'We can confirm a 79-year-old patient in long term care at Ashworth High Secure Hospital has died after becoming physically unwell.'

    Physically unwell? Understated a bit!
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    It's monsters like him and her that make me hope hell exists. They caused a lifetime of misery and suffering to the victims families and continue to do so.

    I am not particularly religious, but my main thought is "May he (& Myra) ROT & WRITHE in Eternal Hell"

    Brady took with him the location of Keith Bennett's body.

    These murders shocked the world. 5 kids these two monsters killed.

    If I remember correctly they recorded some of their victims.

    My mum was born and raised in London. We visited her family a few years after this happened. Even though it was 3 years after the murders took place everyone was talking about the Moors murders. My mom refused to tell me anything about this case. I was too young she said. She was right. Years later when I found out the horrific details I wished I'd never heard of this case.

    Emlyn Williams's 'Beyond Belief' was one of the first few true crime books I ever read. Yikes.

    Hoping that another search will finally locate Keith Bennett's remains.
    Not just for Keith and his family's sake, but to triumph over the horrible man who would not give a single thing to human decency.

    Hindley and Brady were taken back to Saddleworth Moor in the 1980s to help find the bodies of Reade and Bennett. Reade's was uncovered but Bennett's grave has never been found.

    For years Brady ignored calls by the boy's family to reveal the location of his remains.

    British newspapers greeted news of his death with grim satisfaction. "Monster Brady is dead," said the front page of The Sun. "Burn in hell Brady," said the Daily Mirror.

    In this file photo from July 14, 1988, Winnie Johnson is seen with her 23-year old son Joey, digging to try and find her son Keith Bennett on Saddleworth Moor near Manchester, England. Winnie Johnson died aged 78 in 2012 without ever finding out where her son was buried. (AP Photo / PA, File)

    Sky news is tweeting that Ian Brady's last wish was to have his ashes scattered on Saddleworth Moor.

    The coroner is refusing permission for this to happen and will not be releasing Brady's body until he gets assurances that this will not happen.

    This is where his ashes should be scattered, imo.
