    (October 8, 1957-June 2, 2010)
    Born in United Kingdom
    Self-employed taxi driver
    Went on a shooting spree in Cumbria in northeast England
    Killed 12 and wounded 11, then committed suicide
    The people he shot were a mix of those he deliberately targeted and random victims.
    He was in a dispute with his ailing mother over her will.
    His first two victims were his twin brother and the family lawyer.
    He had been convicted of theft from the Sellafield nuclear power plant where he once worked (1990).
    Three of his victims were former Sellafield employees.
    He beckoned an elderly shopper towards his car, then killed her with a blast to the head.
    At the time of his death, he was being investigated by British tax authorities.
    He was responsible for the worst shooting in Britain since the Dunblane Massacre of 1996.
    Lady Gaga was criticized for including a murder scene in her Monster Ball concert in Manchester just hours after the killings.
    A fellow taxi driver said, 'He was quiet but still sociable: always good company, always asking about you.'
    He sent 1,000 pounds to a woman he met in Thailand, who dumped him via text message after receiving the money.
    He reportedly had sought help for his mental turmoil at a local hospital but had been turned away.
