  1. Thank you for being so kind as to remember this boy! Dear God, what a tragedy! What happened to his killers?

    • Hi there. Thanks for dropping by. Both of his killers are now dead. They received life sentences for their crimes. The woman died a few years ago in prison. Ian Brady died just a couple of days ago. He was in his late seventies.

  2. How tragic! Terrible where that kid went through. Poor parents!
