Suspect Dale Cregan, charged with the policewomen’s murders, faces additional murder charges

29-year-old Dale Cregan, charged with the murders of two unarmed policewomen at a location in Greater Manchester, is scheduled to emerge in a court of law later. It has now appeared that armed officers had raided a location near the scene of the two murders just weeks before the murders occurred.

The Press Association has remarked that a hunt had occurred on August 16 at an abode on the Hattersley estate in Tameside, Greater Manchester. The police hunt had happened as part of a search for wanted murder suspect, Dale Cregan.

The two policewomen, whom Cregan is charged with murdering on Tuesday, were Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes. Their tragic murders occurred at a different location on the Hattersley estate.

The two deceased policewomen, whose work ethic has been praised by Sir Peter Fahy, the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester police, were reacting to a report of a burglary in the area.

Following the unfortunate demises of the two policewomen, Sir Peter stated that the residence in Abbey Gardens, where the officers were called to was unknown to them. The Chief Constable has uttered that armed police officers cannot be transported to all the sites of crimes as the police force receives hundreds of complaints.

As per him, the two dead policewomen were performing their tasks on the day of their death. They had travelled to various criminal spots not knowing what they were going to encounter.

Cregan is also accused of assassinating 46-year-old David Short and his 23-year-old son, Mark, who were bumped off in separate attacks earlier in 2012.

Cregan is scheduled to emerge in Manchester City Magistrates’ Court later, facing four additional charges of attempted killings of Ryan Pridding, Michael Belcher and John Short on May 25 and Sharon Hark on August 10.

Police officers have been granted another day to interrogate a 28-year-old man, Stephen Garvey, who has been detained on suspicion of conspiring to perpetrate murder.

The murders of the policewomen have revived appeals in some quarters for the death penalty for the killers of police officers. The repugnant killings have caused revulsion throughout the UK.
