Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
You're right about the poor policing Mr Red. My husband had the documentary on TV last night, and I caught the bit where one of the searchers on the moors found one of the bodies in a shallow grave. He'd noticed a stick poking out of a slight depression, and went to investigate. His superior officer told him to leave it, as it was probably only a dead sheep. He replied that, if so, the sheep was wearing clothes.
It sounded to me as if, understandably, they were fed up with tramping around in the cold over such a huge terrain. But it was rather cavalier of the officer to have that attitude. They were, after all, searching for people's dead children.
