Notorious Moors Murderer Ian Brady dies

Ian Brady and Keith Bennett

After his arrest, police rifled through Brady's books on sadism and perversion and found plans on how to dispose of Evans' body on the moors.

His accomplice Myra Hindley died in prison in 2002 at the age of 60.

The serial killer, 79, who now uses the name Ian Stewart-Brady, is a patient at Ashworth Hospital on Merseyside where he is reportedly receiving palliative care.

They were nicknames that would come back to haunt them with the knowledge he had brutally murdered five children, burying four bodies on isolated moorlands.

Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley documented their lives with a camera.

Britain's longest-serving prisoner, was being held in the high-security Ashworth psychiatric hospital in Merseyside where he had been force-fed for many years after going in hunger strike from 1999.

Brady was first jailed in 1966 and had been at Ashworth for thirty-two years where medical experts say he had chronic mental illness.

In February he was refused permission to launch a High Court fight to have the lawyer of his choice representing him at a tribunal where the decision would be reviewed.

By the 1980s, the couple finally admitted to the abduction and murder of 16-year-old Pauline Reade on her way to a Manchester disco in 1963 and killing Bennett, 12, in 1964.

In one of her pleas for parole, Hindley wrote, 'Within months he [Brady] had convinced me that there was no God at all: he could have told me that the earth was flat, the moon was made of green cheese and the sun rose in the west, I would have believed him, such was his power of persuasion'.

Keith Bennett, also 12, vanished on his way to his grandma's house in Longsight, Manchester on 16 June 1964. Hindley and Brady were jailed in the 1960s for the murders of five children. He received three life sentences to run concurrently.

With both now dead, Brady - in a final act of control - may have taken that secret to the grave.

The children were killed after being abducted by Brady and Hindley between 1963 and 1965.

Brady was convicted of the abduction, torture, sexual abuse and murder of 12-year-old John Kilbride, Edward Evans, 17, and Lesley Ann Downey, 10.

Hindley lured him into the back of her van by asking him to help her load some boxes.

Hindley persuaded Pauline, on her way to a dance, to get into her vehicle to help her look for a glove.

Brady's death has been confirmed by the National Health Service.

Hindley had tried to court favour by helping police to find the missing body of Bennett.

The couple lured her to their home by asking her to help them carry some packages for them.

Hindley's brother-in-law David Smith was present when Brady hacked the homosexual teenager to death with an axe.
