Police had no leads until Brady's girlfriend, and partner in crime, Myra Hindely's brother-in-law came to them and gave a statement that he witnessed Evan Edwards's murder in Brady's home. Smith (brother-in-law) also mentioned Brady's claim that other bodies were buried on Saddleworth Moor.
Police had only circumstantial evidence against the couple. Until, a more thorough search of the house led to the discovery of a luggage ticket, which led to a locker in Manchester Central Station. Inside the locker, police found sadistic gadgets, and pornography, including pictures of Lesley Ann, bound and gagged in Hindely's bedroom. A tape recorder was also found, on which Lesley could be heard crying and begging for her life, as well as Brady and Hindely's voices. In turn, the couple attempted to implicate the brother-in-law, Smith.
Upon the search of Brady's home, Evans's body was found in an upstairs bedroom.
