THE ASHES OF Moors murderer Ian Brady were disposed of at sea in the middle of the night, according to BBC News.

Last month a British judge ordered that there be “no music and no ceremony” during Brady’s cremation.

The child killer died in May aged 79 and it’s now been revealed that he was cremated last week.

BBC reports that documents show his body was collected from the mortuary at Royal Liverpool Hospital at 9 pm on 25 October before he was cremated at Southport Crematorium an hour later.

There was no music or flowers at his cremation.

“Brady’s ashes were then placed in a weighted biodegradable urn, driven to Liverpool Marina and dispatched at sea at 02:30 am,” BBC News reports.

Brady and his girlfriend Myra Hindley, tortured and murdered five children between July 1963 and October 1965.

Brady never expressed remorse for the killings, and the judge in his trial said both he and Hindley were “evil beyond belief”. Hindley died in prison in 2002.
