    Default The Herbert Balmer thread.

    Has anybody got any stories about Herbert Balmer, maybe real life experiences or info about his life, family or maybe even the cars that he drove. Anything at all! He certainly will remain an interesting character and I anticipate that he will be newsworthy in the media in the not too distant future. I am NOT writing a book, I just have an interest in this Detective and his methods. I know we have the Cranborne and Cameo threads already, but I think Balmer deserves a dedicated thread of his own.

    thanks chris, just been looking the case up, not familiar with the whole story and would hate to have a 100 lunatics knocking on a poor unsuspecting blokes door.

    Two of the main cases discussed on this forum - the Cameo and Cranbourne Road murders - where Balmer was lead investigation officer - look like serious miscarriages of justice. This being the case - a dreadful man who abused his power.
