A LETTER in which Moors Murderer Ian Brady claims to have killed four more people has been published for the first time.
It also includes a note from the killer claiming that the body of Keith Bennett is buried in Yorkshire.
In the seven page letter, written by Brady in 1989, he said he killed two men in his native Glasgow and then killed a man and a woman in Manchester, where he and his partner Myra Hindley abducted and murdered five children in the 1960s.
But Greater Manchester Police said the claims have been thoroughly investigated and found to be “completely unsubstantiated”.
The letter was part of a series of correspondence between the notorious child killer and former local journalist Brendan Pittaway.
In it, he also claims that the body of his 12-year-old victim Keith, which has never been found, is buried in Yorkshire.
Police took Brady and Hindley back to the moors above Holmfirth and Meltham in the 1980s in a bid to find the body.
Last week Brady lost his legal bid to be transferred to a jail and was told he will instead remain a patient at maximum security hospital Ashworth on Merseyside for the foreseeable future on the grounds that he is mentally insane.
Brady wrote: “As for Keith Bennett. The area of the site is in Yorkshire, not (double underlined) Lancashire, and should have been dealt with by the Yorkshire Police”.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “A week hardly goes by when we do not receive some information which purports to lead us to Keith’s burial site.
“All of these claims are investigated and it remains our aim to find Keith for the sake of his surviving family members”.
