10. The Moors Murderers
The Moors murderers were British serial killing duo Ian Brady and Myra Hindley who killed five children between 1963 and 1965. Three of the bodies were buried in graves dug on Saddleworth Moor near Manchester. Pictured above with the twisted couple is Hindley’s younger sister, Maureen, who was unaware of the couple’s hidden evil.
When Maureen was a teenager, she fell in love with and married neighbor David Smith. In 1965, 17-year-old Smith witnessed the murder of Brady and Myra Hindley’s final victim, 17-year-old Edward Evans. Smith recalled, “I go into this room and [Brady was] hitting him and hitting him with an axe.”
Fearing Brady would turn on him, Smith helped with wrapping the body and cleaning the crime scene. When Smith returned home, he vomited at the thought of what he had just witnessed and confessed to 19-year-old Maureen. The young couple went to the police, and the Moors Murderers’ reign of terror finally came to an end.
