    Default Photographs may yield clues to location of Moors murder victim's remains

    Documentary on Ian Brady and Myra Hindley to be shown next month could shed new light on bid to find body of Keith Bennett

    Myra Hindley at Ramshaw Rocks in Staffordshire: the photograph will be included in an ITV documentary to be broadcast next month. Photograph:

    A documentary on the life of Moors murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley could shed new light on the bid to find the remains of victim Keith Bennett.
    The ITV programme Brady and Hindley: Possession is due to feature black and white photographs taken by the duo during their trips to the moors. The documentary is due to be shown next month, after a legal hearing which begins on Monday in which Brady effectively seeks the right to die.
    Bennett's final resting place remains a subject of mystery. The 12-year-old was abducted and murdered by Brady and Hindley in 1964 and is the only one of the five young victims whose body has never been traced, despite police accompanying Brady on two unsuccessful trips to the moors in the 1980s in an effort to discover the remains.

    The documentary raises questions about whether Bennett's body may have been buried nearly 40 miles away from Saddleworth Moor the focus of the search for his remains up to now. His mother, Winnie Johnson, died in August last year without having fulfilled her wish of being able to mark her son's grave.
    The programme suggests the photographs taken by Hindley and Brady could be "grave markers", and show a Staffordshire beauty spot called Ramshaw Rocks.
    The documentary also features audio footage of Hindley in custody, and is based on Duncan Staff's book The Lost Boy, an investigation into the murders, which is due to be republished next week.
    Staff, who produced the programme, said: "The documentary looks at the relationship between Hindley and Brady during the murders and their manipulation of evidence.
    "I think it will raise one or two important questions about the investigations which have yet to be solved."

    Brady, 75, who remains in prison after being jailed for life, had been urged by police to "at last do the decent thing" and finally tell Keith's family where he buried him so he can be given a Christian burial.
    Brady and Hindley's other victims were Pauline Reade, 16, who disappeared on her way to a disco on 12 July 1963; John Kilbride, 12, who was snatched in November the same year; Lesley Ann Downey, 10, who was lured away from a funfair on Boxing Day 1964, and Edward Evans, 17, who was axed to death in October 1965.
    Hindley died in jail in 2002 aged 60.
    A legal hearing will begin on Monday at which Brady, who has been on hunger strike for more than a decade and is tube-fed, will ask to be transferred from Ashworth hospital in Merseyside to a prison in Scotland, where they are not force-fed. A move would effectively allow Brady to starve himself to death, without intervention.
    The hearing, at Ashworth but relayed to a court in Manchester, is expected to last for around a fortnight.
    The documentary is due to be broadcast on ITV next month, following the hearing.

    Hmmm. Well, tell Brady that when he helps them find the poor lost child's body, he will get his wish and be allowed to die. Once the child's remains are returned to the family, forget about the deal.

    Sounds about right for this pitiless POS.

    I'm not familiar with Ramshaw Rocks but if the area is anything like Saddleworth Moor then there is little chance that Keith Bennett will be found, even with whatever dubious assistance that sick bastard Brady chooses to give.

    If they think the photographs are markers, why don't they get on with digging? It seems horrible to watch a programme about it after Brady's pointless hearing.
