FACTFILE

 

1997, Regan was a heroin smuggler, living the high life. He wore tailor made clothes, drove round in a Mercedes, and gave friends Cartier watches.

 

1998, Regan was arrested as part of a major police drug offensive, he was caught with 30kg of heroin.

He turned supper grass, giving police many details about felloe drug smugglers.

As a consequence of his cooperation he served only four years in prison.

 

July 2002, Once out of prison he had to hide away, he changed his Name from Avery to Regan by deed-poll,  there were various gangland contracts out on his life. He missed the high life, and hatched a plan to steal a business..

 

January 2003, Regan tries to organise a £3m deal involving land near Heathrow airport which Amarjit Chohan has an option to buy.
When this falls through Regan begins to target Mr Chohan's haulage company Ciba Freight, which is near London's Heathrow airport.

 

13th February 2003, Mr Chohan disappears after going to meet a man allegedly interested in buying Ciba Freight.

He is abducted by Regan, Horncy and Peter Rees and taken back to Regan's father's home near Salisbury, Wiltshire

 

The millionaire businessman was then held at Regan's temporary home at his fathers house  in Forge Close, Wilton, near Salisbury, Wilts, where he was tortured,

The businessman was gagged, forced to record voice messages for his family and  to sign a letter handing over his entire business to Regan. Unknown to Regan at the time, Mr Chohan had managed to write a note, dated the 12th February, the note written to Regan was only found after the body was found, but this proved a piece of incriminating evidence against Regan.
 

Regan had planned to make people think Mr Chohan had given up his freight business and gone abroad voluntarily, with his family.

 

15th February 2003, With Rees guarding Mr Chohan, Regan and Horncy travelled to London, and talked their way into Mr Chohan's home.

They kill his wife Nancy, her young sons Ravinder and Devinder and her mother Charanjit Kaur. They hire a van and take all the bodies to the West Country

 

17th February 2003, Regan arrived at Mr Chohan's company - CIBA Freight with a handwritten letter from Mr Chohan and a power of attorney for the running of the company, the employees were suspicious.
 

19th February 2003, A friend of Regan's, Belinda Brewin, was unwittingly manipulated. Unknown to her Regan used her 50 acre estate at Great Colefield House, Stoodleigh, Tiverton, Devon, to secretly bury the five bodies of the Chohan family.

 

March 2003, pressure from family members about the families disappearance mounts, and the case is referred to Scotland Yard.

 

19th April 2003,  (Easter Saturday):  Regan goes into state of panic by the progress of the police investigation, fearing they will soon learn of the farm in Devon, he returns with Horncy and Rees and digs up the five bodies.

Ms. Brewin became suspicious, she arrived back at the farm in Devon and found Regan, Horncy and Rees working on a drainage ditch in her field.

 

20th April 2003, The men buy a boat and dump the bodies in the English channel.

 

April 2003, Mr Chohan's body was found floating in the sea near Bournemouth pier .When his body was found, it was obvious he had been restrained. He had been gagged with packing tape. Also a urine sample showed an unusually high level of gammahydroxybutyrate - a drug more commonly known as GHB, which can be used as a sedative.
 

15th July 2003,  Mrs. Chohan's body was recovered in the same area.

 

2nd August 2003, Regan had been on the run, but police caught up with him, they tracked him from Spain, and arrested him t a campsite in Belgium.
