Brisbane's Arcade Murder - 70 Years On

Saturday 11 January, 1947
Seventy years ago today at approximately 8.30 in the morning 19 year-old Bronia Armstrong's body was discovered in a staff room at the BAFS Medical Institute, Wallace Bishop Arcade, Albert Street, Brisbane. 
  Queensland detectives, including Det. Frank Bischof, swiftly targeted Bronia's boss, Reg Brown, ruthlessly interrogating him for a full day without legal representation.  Despite his protestations of innocence the fifty-year-old accountant and BAFS Medical Institute Secretary was charged with wilful murder.
The historic ''Arcade Murder'' received much exposure in 2016 and as a consequence various aspects of the crime are currently undergoing further analysis. The joining of the dots continues and pictures are forming. 
Watch this space for the release of new and important evidence! .
