When an attack on a Palmerston North fraud detective made headlines in October 1996, the New Zealand public followed the media reports with fascination. They read like a plot of a Hollywood film or detective novel. Poison pen letters, satanic worship, a police hate crime, and a mysterious and violent pyromaniac. But little did the public know that as the truth emerged, the story was going to get far more bizarre, and the police would turn the focus of their investigation on one of their own. When Detective Brent Garner's home was burned down and he was brutally and sadistically attacked, the Palmerston North community was terrified. Who wanted Garner dead, why, and who was next? Those were the questions Palmerston North police were asking each other. The truth was that Brent Garner decided to leave his wife and family for a secret lover, and he concocted an elaborate plan of deception that he believed would see them all financially taken care of. He thought he was smart enough to fool...

The shoulder mounted rank structure on the epaulettes was introduced in the New Zealand Police from 2000. Prior to this, the NCO's has their insignia on the right sleeve. These events took place in the 1990's so the epaulette insignia wasn't introduced then.

The identikit image was widely circulated around Palmerston North, including canvassing at the New Zealand vs Great Britain rugby league test match that was played at the Palmerston North Showgrounds on October 25th, 1996.
