Moors murderer Ian Brady is receiving end-of-life care in a secure psychiatric hospital in Liverpool, reports have claimed. The killer – who tortured and murdered five children in the 60s with accomplice Myra Hindley – claimed that he had a terminal lung condition in December.
Reports this week suggest that he is now receiving palliative care from nurses specialising in terminal cancer patients. A source told the Sun, “He is gravely ill and everyone there is prepared for him dying. He is receiving 24/7 treatment from nurses specialising in assisting patients with terminal cancer.”
Terry Kilbride, whose brother John, 12, was also murdered by Brady, begged him to tell police where he dumped the body of Keith Bennett, who went missing aged 12 in 1964. He told The Sun: ‘I would beg him to do the right thing on his deathbed and tell us where Keith is. Now is the time for him to stop playing tricks and come clean. If he takes it to the grave, I will feel so sorry for Keith’s family. There will only ever be another search if there’s fresh evidence. That has to come from him.”
