What about his co-murderer Myra Hindley?

Myra Hindley acknowledged her partnership in the heinous crimes with Ian Bradley. She too was serving life sentence and died in jail, back in 2002.

How they Met?

Ian Brady had a huge collection of books about Nazi’s sadism and sexual perversion. That was what turned him into a bloody sadist who murdered five innocent kids later on.
