– Hi, it’s Micha from PRD. Welcome to this week’s episode of Street Talk. This week we’re going take you down Ramus Street.
Ramus Street in Tolland was named after Detective Joseph Victor Ramus, born 25th of February in 1896. He worked as a farm labourer, miner and cane cutter before joining the New South Wales Police Force in 1919 and rising to the rank of Superintendent in 1953.
Detective Ramus was stationed at Wagga Wagga from 1929 to 1940 and featured most prominently in the “Human Glove” case in 1937 after a man’s body had been found in the Murrumbidgee River near Narrandera.
He was also highly commended in 1945 for the outstanding ability he displayed in the “Albury Pyjama Girl” murder mystery wherein the body of an unknown woman was found in a culvert on the Howlong Road in 1934. It was not until 1944 that the woman was identified and her husband convicted of her manslaughter.
Thanks for watching. If you’d like to recommend a street for next week’s video, please leave a comment below.
