Cregan claimed that he targeted the two officers because he blamed the Greater Manchester Police for victimising his family during their investigation of two earlier killings.The murder of the police officers came only five weeks after Cregan had shot dead, David Short, the leader of a rival Manchester crime gang. Eleven weeks before that, Cregan had killed David Short’s son, Mark.After his trial at Preston Crown Court, Cregan was sent to HMP Full Sutton near York. However, he is currently (February 2015) being held at Ashworth high-security psychiatric hospital in Merseyside. He was moved there in September 2013, after going on hunger strike.Inside Ashworth, Cregan is convinced that Hollywood film producers will pay a fortune for his story. The deluded killer has already selected Jason Statham to play himself in the film.One of the staff at the top security hospital said: “He’s mistaken to think anyone would want his vile outpourings.He thinks hes some kind of underworld legend but in reality hes just a scumbag drug dealer from Manchester, who took the lives of two innocent women for the hell of it.”This 6,800-word review gives an insight into Dale Cregan’s life and crimes, both as a study in its own right and as a stepping-stone to further research into the true crime genre.Topics covered include:• Introduction• The Feud• Mark Short• David Short• The Manhunt• PC’s Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone• Trial and Sentence• PrisonTrue Crimes Series:Armed RobberyLevi Bellfield – The Bus Stop StalkerDavid Berkowitz – The Son of SamTed Bundy – The College Girl KillerBuono and Bianchi – The Hillside StranglersJohn Christie – The 10 Rillington Place MurdersDale Cregan – Gangland EnforcerJeffrey Dahmer – The Milwaukee CannibalJoanna Dennehy – The ‘Man-Woman’ MurdererRuth Ellis – The Last Woman to be HangedKenneth Erskine – The Stockwell StranglerStephen Griffiths – The Crossbow CannibalJohn Haigh – The Acid Bath MurdersBrady and Hindley – The Moors MurderersColin Ireland – The Gay SlayerDonald Neilson – The Black PantherDennis Nilsen – The Muswell Hill MurdererHarold Shipman – Doctor DeathGeorge Joseph Smith – Brides in the BathPeter Sutcliffe – The Yorkshire RipperJohann ‘Jack’ Unterweger – International Serial KillerFred and Rose West – The House of HorrorsSteve Wight – The Suffolk StranglerAileen Wuornos – The Hitchhiker From HellAustralian Serial KillersCriminals Who KillFemale Serial KillersLesbian Serial KillersSpree KillersWhole Life SentencesWorld’s Worse Serial Killers
