Doctor should not keep evil Brady’s confession secret
IF, as Dr Alan Keightley claims in revelations following your report about Ian Brady, the Moors murderer has revealed to him where he and his evil accomplice Myra Hindley buried the body of their missing victim, how can he reasonably justify not disclosing all relevant information to the police? (“Will Ian Brady ever reveal where he buried Keith Bennett?”, May 4).
The unrepentant serial killer has compounded and prolonged the agony of Keith Bennett’s family, particularly his mother Winnie, who died last year after 50 years pleading with Brady to reveal where he was buried.
In a case such as this, confidentiality and any perceived rights of the murderer should take second place to justice and the right of the victim’s family to have closure.
In failing to pass this information to the police until he has released a book on the matter, Dr Keightley is aiding and abetting Brady in twisting the knife in the hearts of Keith Bennett’s family. Robert Readman, Bournemouth, Dorset
