Lesley Ann Downey
Birth: Aug. 21, 1954
Death: Dec. 26, 1964

Murder Victim. At age 10, she was abducted from the fairground on Boxing day 1964 by the infamous ‘Moors Murderers' Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, where she was then taken to their home and made to pose for pictures and killed before being buried on Saddleworth Moors, Manchester, England. The arrest of Brady and Hindley for another murder that they commited in front of a witness, led to the arrest of the pair and the discovery of Lesley's body and that of other victims. Only weeks before their arrest, capital punishment had been abolished in England. Both were sentenced to life. (bio by: Lisa)
