Casey, Crime Photographer
Based on a character created by George Harmon Coxe, Casey is the crime photographer for the fictitious newspaper, the Morning Express. In the show’s twelve-year run the title changed no fewer than four times, with names including Flashgun Casey, Casey, Press Photographer and quite simply Crime Photographer. We never do, however, find out what Casey's real first name is. Nevertheless, with the help of Ann Williams, a reporter for the same newspaper, he hunts criminals and solves countless crimes, often with the only clue being a picture he has snapped at the crime scene. The Blue Note tavern is a favourite place of Casey’s and he is often heard discussing the adventures he's had with Ethelbert, the bartender.
