GONE BUT NOT FORGIVEN: Brady 'envies the death of his partner'.
The 64-year-old killer, who lost a court battle for the right to starve himself to death, has been on hunger strike for 18 months in high-security hospital and is being fed intravenously.
A hospital source said: "The thing he craves most is death. He wants to be released from the daily grind.
"He has spent three years being force fed and we think that in his heart of hearts he envies Myra her release.
"In a way she has got the better of him. She will get out of jail, even if it is in a coffin."
Although he has never tried to gain his own freedom Brady has always believed his former lover would have been freed if she'd stuck to the plan he gave her.
An insider at Ashworth Hospital, Merseyside, said: "He told her to study, keep her family ties and show an interest in religion and she'd be out after 25 years.
"But she wouldn't shut up and never lost an opportunity to bad-mouth him."
Despite her antagonism, Brady still had a soft spot for his former lover.
He heard the news of her death on a TV bulletin in the hospital's Lawrence Ward.
The source said: "He showed no emotion but he would be sad to learn about Hindley.
"He still loved her for the innocent times they had together."
