Famous Prisoners: Moors Murderer & Myra Hindley Sentenced To Life
Brady was convicted alongside his girlfriend, Myra Hindley. They were convicted of abducting and killing five innocent kids. They then dumped their bodies at the Saddleworth Moor.
Both were sentenced to life in prison. Brady and Hindley confessed in the late 1980s to abducting, sexually molesting and killing the five children.
The famous prisoners agreed to killing:
- 12-year-old John Kilbride
- 17-year-old Edward Evans
- 10-year-old Lesley Ann Downey
- 16-year-old Pauline Reade
- 12-year-old Keith Bennet
The duo revealed how the kids were killed and where their bodies were dumped at the Saddleworth Moor. Police recovered the remains of four of the victims. But, they were not able to locate the fifth victim, Keith Bennett.
Neither of the famous prisoners would reveal where Bennett’s body was buried for police recovery.
