Pauline Reade, 16, was a neighbour of Myra Hindley and a friend of her younger sister Maureen. She disappeared on her way to a dance at the British Railways Club in Gorton on 12 July 1963. Earlier in the evening, Ian Brady had told Hindley that he wanted to "commit his perfect murder". The pair persuaded Reade to help them search for an expensive glove Hindley said she had lost on Saddleworth Moor. Once there, Brady disappeared with Reade, leaving Hindley alone. Half an hour later Brady reappeared, and the pair then returned to where Reade lay dying, her throat cut. They buried her on the moor using a spade Brady had hidden nearby on a previous visit.
