Seeds of doubt planted

Even though I was very young when Bro­nia Arm­strong (“Mur­der in the frame”, April 12-13) was killed, I re­mem­ber the dev­as­ta­tion this case caused. I wish Reg Brown’s two grand­daugh­ters all the best in clear­ing their grand­fa­ther’s name. Af­ter read­ing Matthew Condon’s book Three Crooked Kings, I was amazed at the huge amount of graft and cor­rup­tion in the po­lice force in those days, es­pe­cially un­der Frank Bischof’s reign of ter­ror; so go to it, girls, and do your grand­fa­ther proud.

It was con­fronting, alarm­ing and con­cern­ing that such anom­alies oc­curred in the process of a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion in 1947. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Deb Drum­mond and Janice Te­u­nis on their com­mit­ment to re­search and their at­tempts to un­earth fac­tors and in­con­gruities as­so­ci­ated with the mys­te­ri­ous death of Bro­nia Arm­strong and the con­vic­tion of their grand­fa­ther, Reg Brown.
