TEXT EXCERPT:

Myra Hindley’s greatest factor for becoming a violent criminal was her early home life. Hindley's father had fought during the Second World War and emerged with a reputation as a hard man and an alcoholic. He taught Myra how to fight and told her he’d beat her up if she didn’t "stick up for herself". At 8, Hindley beat up a boy who had scratched her face with his fingernails.

Malcolm MacCulloch, professor of forensic psychiatry at Cardiff University, said, “The relationship with her father brutalized her ... She was not only used to violence in the home but rewarded for it outside. When this happens at a young age it can distort a person's reaction to such situations for life.”

Myra did not have problems with the law growing up though. She did not spend time in institutions or up on criminal charges. She did clerical work when she finished school. It was on such a job where she met Ian Brady.

Brady had spent time in institutions and up on criminal charges. These ranged from property crimes to threatening a former girlfriend with a knife. He also developed an early fascination with the Nazis and their atrocities plus with the murderers Leopold and Loeb. Brady was the one who displayed classic psychopathic symptoms from early childhood onwards, not Hindley.

Brady was an influence on Hindley with his Nazi interest. She wanted to become more Aryan to please him and that is why she bleached her hair and wore crimson lipstick. They drank German wine and read from Nazi books to one another.

Brady also got Hindley interested in the book on Leopold and Loeb, “Compulsion”, plus the movie on it which came out in 1959. By the time he immersed her in Leopold and Loeb in 1963, he was ready for them to also commit their “perfect murder,” just like they had done. One difference was that Leopold and Loeb were only interested in murder. Brady added sexual assault and torture to the original crime.

Brady acted as a catalyst on Hindley for criminality. He himself needed no one to activate him. He’d been a full blown psychopath since childhood.

This was later confirmed in prison where Hindley lived a regular life as an inmate in her prison, even establishing relationships. Brady, by contrast, only got worse and was transferred from prison to a criminally insane mental hospital by 1985.

TEXT EXCERPT #2
~ Ian Brady made a fatal miscalculation in october 1965 about David Smith.
~ Smith idolized Brady but without realizing how “advanced” Brady was into crime.
~ Smith was a lower level criminal. High crimes like murdering children had never crossed his mind.
~ Brady was indoctrinating Smith as he’d done to HIndley.
~ Hindley saw the danger of letting her sister and her husband see too much but Brady would not listen to her warnings.
~ Smith’s police statement said:
~ "When I ran in, I just stood inside the living room and I saw a young lad. He was lying with his head and shoulders on the couch and his legs were on the floor. He was facing upwards. Ian was standing over him, facing him, with his legs on either side of the young lad's legs. The lad was still screaming ... Ian had a hatchet in his hand ... he was holding it above his head and he hit the lad on the left side of his head with the hatchet. I heard the blow, it was a terrible hard blow, it sounded horrible.”
~ At 6:07 am Smith made an emergency services call to the police. he told his story to the officer on duty and then made his full statement when he got to the station.
~ the police had no idea that Brady and Hindley were the killers.
