So Ian Brady has allowed Winnie Johnson to die without revealing the location of her son Keith Bennett, buried somewhere on Saddleworth Moor. He is the third victim of the Moors Murderers, Brady and Myra Hindley, and the only one still to be found.
Brady claims to know where the remains lie, but has refused to reveal the location, even though Keith’s mother was desperate to see her son properly buried.
He was supposed to attend a tribunal a few weeks ago, to decide whether he should be allowed to die after 12 years of hunger strike and tube-feeding. Why do we need a tribunal? It’s what he wants; let him get on with it.
I’m sure Hindley will be keeping a seat warm in hell for this evil, manipulative man.
And as for the woman, Jackie Powell, who is supposed to have had the information at hand but did nothing with it, well I hope she has the chance to consider where her loyalties should lie. With a still-grieving family after nearly 50 years, or with a self-confessed mass-murderer.
