Dale Cregan is a convicted English drug dealer and murderer who is sentenced to a whole life sentence in prison for counts of murder and three separate counts of attempted murder. When he was younger, Cregan was bullied a lot and he didn't get the grades needed to graduate. Eventually, Cregan got involved in the criminal underworld, even joining several drug gangs. Cregan later got into an incident which costed him his left eye. As time went on, Cregan became notorious and decided to up his game. With the aid of an unknown accomplice, Cregan attacked a bar, killing Mark Short, due to a longstanding gangland fued. After Mark's death, Cregan went after the victim's father; David Short, attacking him and Mrs. Short at their home. Dale killed both with his handgun then, to make sure they were finished, threw a hand grenade at their bodies. After the Short's death, Cregan made a false call to the police, who sent two officers; Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, to respond. Both officers were caught off guard by the merciless criminal, who killed them the same way he murdered the Shorts. An hour after he killed Hughes and Bone, Cregan turned himself in to a police station in Hyde. Cregan was convicted with the crimes listed in the beginning, and was sent to Manchester Prison. This didn't last long, as Cregan was transferred to a hospital, after going on a hunger strike.
