Product Information

The Moors murders were carried out by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley between July 1963 and October 1965, in and around Manchester, England. The victims were five children aged between 10 and 17—Pauline Reade, John Kilbride, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans—at least four of whom were sexually assaulted. Two of the victims were discovered in graves dug on Saddleworth Moor; a third grave was discovered there in 1987, more than twenty years after Brady and Hindley's trial. The body of a fourth victim, Keith Bennett, is also suspected to be buried there, but despite repeated searches it remains undiscovered.

The murders were the result of what Malcolm MacCulloch, professor of forensic psychiatry at Cardiff University, called a "concatenation of circumstances". The trial judge, Mr Justice Fenton Atkinson, described Brady and Hindley in his closing remarks as "two sadistic killers of the utmost depravity",

On 15 November 2002, aged 60, Hindley died from bronchial pneumonia, caused by heart disease.

Handwritten greeting card with floral print - standard greeting card size. Hindley reminisces about the recently celebrated Christmas holiday as well as memories of Christmas past. The overall mood presents a well-being and peaceful tone. The card is signed Myra and is hand dated February 15, 1999. Envelope is not included.

The scan displays both sides of the card.
