Ian Brady - Time To Let Go? - Part 2

On the 2 July I wrote a post about Moors Murderer Ian Brady who wants to be allowed to die.  I said:

"I can't help wondering whether he should be granted his wish provided he puts the mother of Keith Bennett, one of the children he murdered, out of her misery and tell her where he buried his body. At least that would bring her closure after all these years. Is there any part of Brady that is humane enough to do that for her if he does know/still remember?"

Apparently he has now revealed, to one of his long term visitors, the location of Keith Bennett's body:

Does that mean he does have an inkling of humanity?

[I have to say there is a part of me which is very curious about his long term visitor- who are they, why did they start visiting, was the purpose of visiting to extract this very information?]
