Kisses and an embrace for the man who murdered her own mother: Emotional moment daughter of Muriel McKay – who was kidnapped in 1969 after being mistaken for Rupert Murdoch’s wife – meets her killer before he shows spot on map where he buried body

This is the moment the daughter of murdered Muriel McKay met her mother’s killer who showed her on a map where he buried her mother’s body more than 50 years after the horrific crime.

Dianne McKay hugged Nizamodeen Hosein and kissed him on each cheek when they met in his native Trinidad, where he was deported after serving 20 years in prison.

In the warm greeting, Mrs McKay, 84, said: ‘Hello, it’s me. I came all this way to see you’ to which the murderer replied: ‘Thank you, God bless you’.

Brothers Nizamodeen and Arthur Hosein were convicted of murdering Muriel in 1969 after carrying out an elaborate but flawed kidnapping before inflicting torturous cruelty on their helpless victim.

The pair grabbed the mother and demanded a £1m ransom after mistaking her for media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s first wife Anna in December that year.

They murdered Muriel on a farm in Hertfordshire – with Nizamodeen believed to have placed her body in an unmarked grave. Her remains were never found.

Chillingly, during the meeting over the weekend, Hosein pointed to a spot on a photo of the farm where Muriel was held, and told her daughter: ‘This is where I buried her.’

According to The times, Hosein told Dianne: ‘I was young and scared of my brother. I just did what I was told.

‘Muriel named my son and that’s the hardest part of it. I regret every bit of it and I wish I could turn back the hands of time, but I can’t. My head was in turmoil. I can’t sleep at night and I want closure. I get up and walk for miles, the police find me in the street and have to take me home.’

Dianne told the newspaper that she will never be able to forgive Hosein but just wants the help.

He claimed that he is now trying his best to help as he does not have much time left.

Dianne asked the killer to show her the place where her mother was buried as she was still determined to give her the ‘burial she deserved’.

The police searched an area of ​​the farm in 2022, but Hosein claims they searched the wrong area.

Dianne spoke about the emotional encounter Heaven: ‘I think you should see Nizam as the young man who did the crime, not this funny old guy. You have to see it all through. It’s the only way I can cope.

‘He was young and very much under the influence of his brother who was a horrible person. Nizam had not long arrived in Britain and knew no one. He went along with what his brother told him to do.’

Mother-of-three Muriel (55) was grabbed from her home in London and taken to a farm that was owned at the time by the murderer brother Arthur Hosein.

The Hosein brothers mistook Mrs McKay for Anna Murdoch after seeing their car at her home.

Murdoch and Anna lent their chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce to Mrs McKay’s husband Alick, an executive at News Limited and Murdoch’s deputy, while on holiday, unaware of a £1m kidnapping plot afoot .

The scheme was the brainchild of Arthur Hosein, who arrived in Britain in the 1960s and borrowed heavily to buy his farmhouse.

His brother Nizam, 12 years younger, followed him here in the summer of 1969 and became involved in the kidnapping plan.

The pair spent several days chasing the Rolls-Royce thinking they were tracking down Anna Murdoch – but Muriel was instead seized when she returned home after dropping off her cleaner on December 29.

The kidnapping is believed to have involved a case of mistaken identity - with the kidnappers intending to capture Anna Murdoch, first wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

Her husband later arrived to find the front door open, lights on and no sign of his wife – while the phone had been pulled from the wall in the hallway.

The contents of his wife’s handbag were strewn across the stairs and a rusty meat cleaver was on the floor.

Mrs McKay’s daughter Dianne, then 29 and a mother of two young children, took a call the next day from a man she now knows was Nizamodeen.

He told her they were ‘the mafia’ and had Dianne’s mother, before the family then received a scribbled note in Mrs McKay’s handwriting pleading to ‘do something to get me home’ and a ransom note demanding £1 million.

After a desperate attempt to pick up a suitcase containing ransom money, the kidnappers were arrested at the farm in January – but there was no sign of Mrs McKay.

The Hosein brothers refused to say where she was, leading to lurid speculation that her body had been fed to the pigs on the farm – and when they took the stand at their Old Bailey trial in September 1970, each try to blame

Both were convicted of kidnapping and murder and sentenced to life imprisonment, although Nizamodeen was released and deported in 1990.
