The monster Ian Brady has died in prison after it was revealed he was on his death bed.

After half a century behind bars, the Moors Murderer, who sexually assaulted, tortured and murdered several children and young people. Indiscriminate of gender, sexuality or race, the demonic pair took their victims on to the Saddleworth Moors and buried them there.

It has also been revealed, that one of the victims also had the humiliation of their murder being captured on tape by Hindley and Brady.

So disturbing was the recording, that the hardened police officer who heard the tape said he would ‘kill Brady with his bare hands’.

The country as a whole is breathing not only a sigh of relief that this monster is no longer costing us anymore, but that his death was painful and slow after his declining health due to cancer.

It is said that he died due to complications regarding his respiratory system, however, the cancer more than likely allowed the opportunistic infection to take hold. It’s strangely, and almost satisfyingly ironic that an opportunistic killer killed this opportunistic killer.

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.

Brady was kept at the Ashworth mental hospital, Merseyside in a secure unit for the last of his days, though it is understood that although his mental health was deteriorating, he was still sharp and bright for his 79 years.

We are now hoping that the families of the people who fell into the clutches of this despicable and abhorrent pair can find some solace in the fact that neither of them will ever be able to hurt another person again, and that justice, however slow has come about, even if only through dumb luck, they both suffered painful and slow deaths, with Hindley’s being a complication due to heart disease, and Brady’s Cancer.

Although this is a historic case, and one that never had been seen in the United Kingdom, it struck fear into the hearts of parents across the world at how sadistic and twisted people can be, leading to a near paranoid populace, not allowing their children out of their sight for more than a couple of minutes.

If there is one good thing to come out of the death of Brady, it is that this abomination was only kept alive to allow him to suffer and stew on the atrocities he committed without caring about how the families would cope afterwards.

There are many more things we could say about them, however, as we are a family friendly establishment, we shan’t be printing what a lot of people are thinking, but we guarantee, there are a lot of very blue words!
