UK Moors murderer Ian Brady dies

    Moors Murderer Ian Brady, who tortured and killed five children with Myra Hindley in crimes that shocked the nation, has died.

    The 79-year-old died at Ashworth Hospital, a secure psychiatric unit in Merseyside where he had been detained since 1985.

    Brady, who was jailed in 1966, buried four of his victims in graves on Saddleworth Moor, Greater Manchester.

    One victim's brother said Brady's death would not end their "nightmare".

    A Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust spokesman said Brady had died at 18:03 BST on Monday.

    Body never found
    Brady, who was born in Glasgow but later moved to Manchester, was jailed at Chester Assizes 51 years ago for the murders of 12-year-old John Kilbride, Lesley Ann Downey, aged 10, and Edward Evans, 17.

    In 1985 he also admitted to the murders of Pauline Reade, 16, and Keith Bennett, who was 12.

    The children had been abducted by Brady and his lover Hindley, who died in prison in 2002, between 1963 and 1965.

    Brady never revealed where Keith's remains were buried. The boy's mother Winnie Johnson, who died in 2012, had repeatedly pleaded for Brady to do so.

    Sad that Keith's mom was never able to bury her son. Hopefully one day he will be found and laid to rest with her.

    Ian Brady’s ashes must not be scattered on Saddleworth Moor, where he buried four of his child victims, a coroner has said.

    Opening an inquest into the 79-year-old killer’s death, Christopher Sumner said he also wanted assurances that a funeral director and crematorium willing to take theMoors murderer’s body had been found.

    Brady, who, along with his girlfriend Myra Hindley, tortured and murdered five children between 1963 and 1965, died in Ashworth secure hospital in Merseyside on Monday night without ever revealing where he had hidden the remains of Keith Bennett, a 12-year-old boy from Longsight in Manchester.

    The cause of Brady’s death was heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the inquest at Sefton coroner’s court heard.

    Sumner, senior coroner for Sefton in Merseyside, said he would not release Brady’s body until certain conditions were met.

    He certainly shouldn't be buried anywhere near where his crimes took place and his victims were buried.
    Put the ashes out to sea.

    The moor is too beautiful a place for the likes of him.
