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.

Several of Brady’s letters to his pen-pals and fans are now sold out on so-called ‘murderabilia’ sites which specialise in flogging items that belong to the world’s most notorious serial killers.

One of the sites, named

How Ian Brady cried when his pet spaniel died

Dr Alan Keightley was head of religious studies at a West Midlands sixth-form college when he began writing to Ian Brady in 1992 at the suggestion of the mother of his youngest victim, Lesley Ann Downey. For years, he visited Brady in prison every month, spoke to him on the phone every day and received hundreds of letters from him.

Dr Keightley built up a detailed archive of material he has now turned into a biography of Brady that provides a disturbing and unique insight into the man himself — and the nature of evil.

More than half a century has gone by since the Moors Murders, yet they hold a fascination that will not go away, despite the passage of time.

They were the flip side of the so-called Swinging Sixties, traumatic events that shattered all sense of safety and decency in society. It is one

Robert Klemko and Jenny Vrentas have a deep dive today on the Tom Brady Super Bowl jersey theft—it’s even part of Sports Illustrated’s “True Crime” series —and it’s an interesting look at the complicated steps law enforcement had to take in order to retrieve the Super Bowl LI jersey. Cops recovered it, along with Brady’s jersey from Super Bowl XLIX and Von Miller’s helmet from Super Bowl 50, from Martín Mauricio Ortega, the former director of the La Prensa tabloid in Mexico City.

The story details one of the law enforcement sources in the case: A 19-year-old, Dylan Wagner, who once sold a game-worn Deion Branch jersey to Ortega. Wagner corresponded with Ortega after the sale, and Ortega sent him photos of his memorabilia collection,

Tom Brady Super Bowl jersey thief investigation | Longform – MMQB

NFL security officials return to Mexico for a second time, to provide any last-minute assistance before the plan to recover the shirt is executed. They leave before the raid, handing the operation to Mexican authorities.

On the Ortegas’ front door, a decorative letter O hung slightly askew, joined by a cartoon bunny in overalls, carrots dangling from its right hand. When a reporter knocked, there was no answer. A next-door neighbor said she had not seen Ortega in many days (and was promptly scolded by a male companion for talking to the press). Phone calls to Ortega’s home were answered by a housekeeper who promised to relay messages. Ortega did not respond to numerous emails and voicemails.

To those who know him and worked with him, his love of football and the pageantry of the Super Bowl was no secret.

Every year for at least a decade Ortega
