No remains found in initial search for Moors Murder victim Keith Bennett
Archaeologists have finished excavating the primary scene in the renewed search for Moors Murder victim Keith Bennett and found “no visible evidence” of human remains, according to police.
Greater Manchester Police said “no bones, fabric or items of interest” have been recovered in the area recently brought to police attention by a member of the public who had been researching the schoolboy’s murder.
The search continues in the wider area of Saddleworth Moor in the Peak District, and soil samples have been taken for analysis.
Keith was 12 when he was murdered by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley in 1964, and his body was never recovered.
