Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
There is no reference to special knickers or loss of internal organs, blood or anything else when describing the execution of any woman in his long list of victims.

He does actually mention female prison warders being excused the last moments on the scaffold. They were replaced by male officers after the condemned had reached the drop. How thoughtful!!

Re-reading parts of his book only serves to emphasise to me just how dreadful and barbaric executions are.
