Cal Crem

In the spirit of Juncta Juvant; In the late 1880’s Campbell County Kentucky Sheriff was investigating a homicide where a women’s body was found with out her head.  The sheriff at that time, because of limited personnel did not have a homicide squad, so as it was the custom, he called Cincinnati for assistance, Cal Crem was one of two detectives sent to help with the investigation.

Cal Crem retired as Chief of Detectives of the Cincinnati Polivce Department, and opened his own detective agency. One of the more well known cases he solved was the baseball scandal between The Cincinnati Reds and The Chicago White Socks in 1919. This was not known by anyone until his death in 1953 when relatives went through his files and found all the documentation.
