Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
decides that Brady gets an hours TV devoted to his life and achievements?

Well it does serve as a warning for the public to be alert. These days, with mobile phones/cameras it is so much easier.
And there was a lorry driver who witnessed what (from his description) was the pair probably carrying things to bury on the moor. Apparently he was not believed because the police said Brady didn't drive! On the basis he didn't have a licence for cars. They had a car.

Let us hope policing has improved.

What didn't come out in the documentary was unsolved disappearances and the timings with Brady/Hindley's known crimes. They hinted at gaps and how such criminals usually operate - ie get bolder and more frequent.
Not names but at least timings would have been instructive - instead of the repetitions.
