Letters of evil child killer Brady bought on ‘dark web’ by macabre collectors



Notorious: Ian Brady

By Aaron Tinney

May 23 2017

Morbid crime obsessives have spent a fortune buying Ian Brady’s possessions and letters from murky websites in the wake of his death, the Belfast Telegraph can reveal.

A Northern Ireland-based collector of serial killer ‘murderabilia’ said a spike in sales of Brady’s belongings happened hours after news broke of the death of the Moors murderer a week ago.

The collector also revealed some are hunting for the ‘Ian Brady holy grail’ – a letter in which he is believed to pinpoint the spot where he disposed of the body of his fourth victim, 12-year-old Keith Bennett, which still remains undiscovered.

‘I dated a killer and sold her panties’

Items once owned by serial killers including famed Australian Ivan “The Backpack Killer” Milat are being peddled online by a company that profits from the sales of macabre memorabilia and collectibles.

Eric Holler, formerly known by his “stage name” Eric Gein, told News.com.au that he started his business, Serial Killer Ink, because of a lifelong fascination with some of the most depraved humans to have existed.

The site caters to those with a special interest in the worst of humanity: “necrophiles and cannibals … satanic killers … mass shooters … serial killers.”

Holler typically contacts the killers in prison and requests drawings, hand tracings, hair samples, and personal effects from them. Then he sells the goods online.
