I know, I know, I knowwww… It’s been a while since I’ve put up a new TCT post. I wanted to have this case posted last week, but I’ve been super busy, both personally and in terms of the reading I’m trying to get done (my goal this year may have been too lofty,) so the draft I’d been working on for the last couple of weeks never saw its way to publication. Whomp whomp.
My basement is also finally finished (for a second time.) That’s right! The water damage is repaired, new floors are down and I’ve finally gotten everything put back together. I’ve been down there, under blankets on my nice new couches playing Assasin’s Creed: Odyssey all weekend and it’s been glorious!
There are still finishing touches that I want to do – pictures on the walls, etc. And basically, two of my four bookshelves are totally empty, but trust me I am rapidly correcting that and spending too much money in the process. This includes a trip to Book Outlet’s Box Sale next Friday! It’s the most wonderful time of the year for any booknerds within travel distance! Maybe I’ll see you there!
But enough about me and my bullshit. Let’s talk about Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. Together, between July 1963 and October of 1965, in Manchester, England, they sexually assaulted and killed five children together. So yeah, they’re a delightful pair that you’d definitely invite over to dinner parties and other normal people stuff.
You know what they say: the couple that kills together goes to prison in separate locations and never gets to see each other ever again!
This is The Moors Murders.
Obvious trigger warning: violence against children.Continue reading “True Crime Tuesday: The Moors Murders”
