Information from Glenn Taylor – Beyond Courage.

I was advised this morning of the passing of my old boss at Albury Detectives, Detective Sergeant Jim Fogarty, aged 74. Jim had been living at Coffs Harbour.

I worked with Jim from mid eighties to the end of 1990 at Albury Detectives.

Photo of Jim (right side) and myself after the arrest of a man named Coles at Wagga Wagga for the shooting murder of a man named Twomey at Wymah (near Albury) in March 1990.

When this photo was taken back at Albury leading the offender back from Court we had worked 32 hours straight without a break, arresting 2 offenders for murder and an armed robbery and recovering the murder weapon. After putting the offender in the cells and wearily doing the occurrence pad entry the Inspector in charge of Albury said to us both, “I hope you can justify the overtime?” We still had a laugh about this comment over the years.

These days a viscous murder may take a whole team of Crime Agencies detectives weeks to solve and we did it in 32 hours.

The body of the bikie had been found over an embankment with him and his motorcycle full of shotgun pellets.

REST IN PEACE JIM FOGARTY.

You were a good man.
