IAN BRADY and girlfriend Myra Hindley tortured their young victims before killing them.
IT’S fair to say there won’t be many tears spilled for the twisted killer following his cremation.
Brady tortured and killed at least five children on the moors above Manchester in the 1960s.
Striking fear into the Manchester community along with his girlfriend Myra Hindley, who died in November 2002 aged 60, the Moors Murders continue to stir up horrific memories and fury in Northwest England, Britain and beyond.
And the depth of feeling that swept the nation at the time remains as strong today.
The outpouring of emotion since Brady died aged 79 of lung cancer at Ashworth high-security prison – where he spent much of his 51 years behind bars after being declared ‘medically psychotic’ – has been overwhelming.
Facebook and Twitter have been awash with commenters wishing England and Wales’ longest-serving prisoner an eternity ‘rotting in hell’.
From his funeral plans, it would appear that Brady himself was even preparing for a lifetime in the Devil’s company.
For much of his time behind bars, the serial killer had been orchestrating a detailed plan for his final send off, requesting music that charts a murderer’s descent into the inferno.
No one would begrudge him his place beside the Devil.
