Gary Storey is a recognised forensic document examiner, being a member and the President of the Australasian Society of Forensic Document Examiners Incorporated (ASFDE Inc). Gary commenced his training at the Victoria Police Norman McCallum Forensic Science Laboratory under the instruction of the late Len Timewell.
Whilst a member of the Victoria Police Force; Gary presented evidence in court as an expert on numerous occasions for the Crown as an expert document examiner. He also in conjunction with Len Timewell in 1981/2 undertook the examination of some 2,000 ballot papers to be able to advise the Board of inquiry into the falsification of the Local Government election of the City of Richmond (Victoria). The Board of inquiry was conducted by the then Mr Alistair Nicolson QC who was subsequently appointed to the Supreme Court of Victoria and later appointed as Chief Justice of the Family Court of Australia.
Gary was also involved in advising investigators appointed to the Royal Commission into certain Housing Commission Land purchases and Other Matters (1981) relating to the falsification of documents which dishonest Estate Agents had produced in evidence to support their actions in relation to purchasing/dealing with property within the purview of the Housing Commission of Victoria. From his observations of one document involved Gary was able to advise the make, model, type of typewriter, colour of the body of the typewriter and the range of serial numbers which was applicable to the particular model and the date on which the spurious document was typed.
On resigning his commission as an Officer of the Victoria Police in 1993 he commenced practice as a private examiner using the business name of Forensic Document Examination (Australia).
Gary still has his practice trading as Forensic Document Examination (Australia) but now primary consults to Chris Anderson & Co Pty Ltd.
