It was such a corrupt case and the appropriate adult nearly collapsed the trial. I do believe Fred when he stated that many Police officers used to use Rose's sexual services.

This story was probably among the worst crimes in history. Many many others dead and involved too.
Did he drive a mini by any chance..? or ride a motorbike..?

somthing else of interest here...

The murders are so named because two of the victims were discovered in graves dug on Saddleworth Moor; a third grave was discovered on the moor in 1987, over 20 years after Brady and Hindley's trial in 1966. The body of a fourth victim, Keith Bennett, is also suspected to be buried there. Despite repeated searches of the area, as of 2010 it remains undiscovered.

Rituals of various kinds are a feature of almost all known human societies, past or present. They include not only the various worship rites and sacraments of organized religions and cults, but also the rites of passage of certain societies, atonement and purification rites, oaths of allegiance,

In psychology, the term ritual is sometimes used in a technical sense for a repetitive behavior systematically used by a person to neutralize or prevent anxiety; it is a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The murders, reported in almost every English-language newspaper in the world,were the result of what Malcolm MacCulloch, professor of forensic psychiatry at Cardiff University,
