Moors murderer Ian Brady has died at the age of 79

Notorious "Moors Murderer" Ian Brady has died in a high-security United Kingdom hospital aged 79, hours after he was urged to reveal where the last of his child victims is buried.

These were their five victims.

He told BBC Two's Newsnight: "To know that your daughter was lost, alone and murdered and then actually her death was recorded, the grief can never ever be etched from your mind". He insisted she was as much to blame.Hindley had tried to court favour by helping police to find the missing body of Bennett. Four of the victims were buried on Saddleworth Moor.

Once there, Pauline was beaten about the head and had her throat cut with such force her spinal cord was severed.

John was lured on to the moor where he was sexually assaulted and murdered. Her body was buried on the moor but not found until 1987 when the pair finally confessed.

Pauline was still wearing her pink and gold party dress and blue coat.

Brady was also convicted of the murder of 12-year-old John Kilbride.

In the shadow of the presidential assassination little attention was paid to the disappearance of the Manchester boy.

John Kilbride was just 12 when Brady and Hindley offered him a lift home from a market in Ashton-under-Lyne in Lancashire on November 23, 1963.

The youngster agreed to get into the vehicle on the pretext his parents would be anxious about him if he was late home.




Keith Bennett disappeared on the way to his grandmother's house on June 16, 1964, and Hindley lured him into her vehicle and drove him to the Moors.

However numerous attempts to prize the information from Brady have failed. Hindley, meanwhile, died in prison of pneumonia in 2002. The photograph would later lead police to the young boy's resting place.

Brady's death was confirmed by the National Health Service.

But even though Brady and Hindley were both permitted to travel to the moor to try to remember where the boy's remains were, his body was not found.

"I wish to god he'd turn round and tell me where Keith is because he's known all these years, he's known where he's put him, he knows how he's murdered him".

Twelve-year-old Keith Bennett's body has never been found.

The boy's mother Winnie Johnson, who died in 2012, had repeatedly pleaded for Brady to do so.

Some of the victims were beaten, tortured and sexually abused before being killed.

Hindley and Brady killed a total of five young people between 1963 and 1965 before burying them on Saddleworth Moor in Greater Manchester.

The cases contained nude photos of Lesley Ann Downey - and also the harrowing tape of her pleading for her life. She was 16 years old.
