Coroner: Killer Brady's ashes mustn't be scattered on moor

At the trial of Brady and Hindley the jury had to listen to the heartbreaking tape recordings of their victims, pleading for their lives.

"There was always a glimmer of hope that he would disclose vital information but that has gone".

Greater Manchester Police has conducted several search operations to try to discover the location of Keith Bennett.

"And I think that'll be the opinion of most people".

"Sadly, Winnie never had that during her lifetime".

The couple repeated the method roughly every six months, picking up 12-year-old John Kilbride at a market in Ashton-under-Lyne, Keith Bennett, also 12, as he walked to his grandmother's home in Longsight, and finally Lesley Ann Downey.

The Mersey Care Trust was unable to confirm the cause of Brady's death, but said he had been given oxygen for a while.

Brady died at Ashworth Hospital in a psychiatric unit where he'd been detained since 1985, according to the BBC.

Two private ambulances were seen leaving the grounds of the hospital on Monday night.

Four of the victims were buried on Saddleworth Moor in the south Pennines.

Alas, however, he departed this earth with one final insult to the families of those he murdered, and kept the location he buried 12 year old Keith Bennett a closely guarded secret in his sadistic game of cat and mouse, and upon his death essentially gave the family the middle finger by not divulging the information. "A complete lunatic. Good riddance".

"I think that's a right and proper moral judgment to make".

On Monday, shortly before Brady's death was confirmed, Alan Bennett complained on Facebook that the killer had attracted a cabal of admirers who would "cash in" on their connection to the mass murderer after his death.

Another said: "My thoughts are with Alan Bennett and his family".

Brady died just hours after being urged to reveal the burial site of Keith Bennett - one of the victims of Brady and his partner Myra Hindley.

In 1966, Brady and Hindley were jailed for life for the killings of John Kilbride, 12, 10-year-old Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans, 17.

His lawyers said he had emphysema and was terminally ill.

In 2013 Brady asked to be moved to a Scottish prison so he could not be force fed, as he could be in hospital, and where he could be allowed to die if he wished.

He was turned down at the mental health tribunal on the grounds that he was insane.

The coroner told an inquest hearing that he had received a request to release the body of the killer, who adopted the surname Stewart-Brady while in prison.

"Cynically, this is another attempt to draw attention to himself and elicit some sympathy". Operation Maida, launched in 2003, led to a renewed excavation of Saddleworth Moor but the search was called off in 2009. The letter has never been located, and Johnson died in 2012 without knowing what happened to her son.

Opening an inquest into Brady's death at Southport Town Hall, Sumner also said he wants assurances that a funeral director and crematorium willing to take the serial killer's body have been found. For decades they have suffered, not only from the unimaginable loss of their loved ones but they have also had to endure years of endless stories, speculation and rumour. That is what they live for.

"For their relentless appeals and false hopes that they gave the families for over 50 years destroyed all of the families as well, even to this day".

He said: "Whilst we are not actively searching Saddleworth Moor, Greater Manchester Police will never close this case".

Relatives of the children killed by Ian Brady, the man responsible for Britain's notorious "Moors Murders", gave a bittersweet reaction to his death on Tuesday, as newspapers hailed the demise of a monster.
