Very sad and also cruel that she never knew.
We cannot even imagine the pain.

This is the end of a very long campaign by  Winnie Johnson and it is so sad that she never got to say goodbye to her boy.

The campaign still wages on.

Re: My heart Is filled with great sadness

I suspect the same in that he just doesn't remember.
How many of us have buried things in the forest (coins, little boxes, and the like) and years later you go back to look and don't recognise anything?
In quite a short time the undergrowth and trees, especially pine, can change dramatically.

Re: My heart Is filled with great sadness

Must be said I also wondered if he'd be able to pin point the spot too. I read somewhere that he has other bodies buried out there that he also hasn't revealed. The photos of him also make him look like a pshycho. I suspect he got a sick kick out of not revealing the burial places.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: My heart Is filled with great sadness

It is sad that Winnie and her family have not been able to see closure on the events that occurred almost 50 years ago.
I doubt that Saddleworth Moor has changed that much during those years, but I expect Brady will take this secret to his grave.
For those interested in the recent events concerning Brady, the program airs tomorrow night.
Ian Brady: Endgames of a Psychopath, Channel 4, 9:00 PM Monday 20th August.

Re: My heart Is filled with great sadness

The Police has used computer imagery to compare the current landscape with the scenery in some pictures taken by Brady and Hindley in 1964.  Geologists have also examined soil and peat movement over the past 40 years to see if they could work out where a body could be.
In 2008 an American spy satellite was used to try and find a body.

Watched the programme and am disgusted at the women who has been working with Brady who gave him the sealed letter back and now there Is no trace of It? She should be sacked.
