The brother of Moors murder victim Keith Bennett says he is ‘offended and angered’ by claims from a group of paranormal investigators that they may have found killer Ian Brady’s spade.
The spade, which has no handle, was reportedly discovered on Saddleworth Moor by members of the Worsley Paranormal Group, which has been searching for Keith’s remains.
They claimed to have found it at a spot where they believe Keith is buried.
“They also post videos claiming to have picked up Keith on a ‘ghost box’ machine, all of which I find totally disgusting.

Just like there has NEVER been a psychic who helped solve a crime mystery directly, there has never been a paranormal investigation group that has done so either. This is actually strong evidence suggests that psychic powers and equipment that supposedly talks to the dead is completely bogus. The deceased do not transmit direct valuable information to solve their mystery deaths or help the living figure something out.
The spade found was one of several that have been found on the moor. The police find no value to it as evidence in this case.
Mr Bennett added: “This ‘find’ is of no help to us. A spade may well have been found again, but it does not tie in with any of the other information or evidence we have relating to Keith. Their need for publicity and their desperation to get anyone to listen to them is evident from their pursuit of various individuals, usually as uninformed or as crass as themselves, on the internet.”
What right do these paranormal investigators have to make such outrageous claims that they have received information? Their methods have never been authenticated. They apparently have no standards of ethics or consideration that this pathetic excuse for “evidence” is hurtful and distracts from the real investigation.
