'You couldn’t hate me more than I hate myself. I have asked God for His forgiveness, but I couldn’t ask for yours, for how can I ever expect you to forgive me when I cannot forgive myself.' Few have attracted such notoriety or public loathing as the Moors Murderers. Myra’s story is that of a very dark world which no one wants to visit. From her prison cell, Myra reveals her story to a world that might not wish to listen, or can possibly bear to.
