A former professional baseball player, Edward Nuremoh ("Homerun" spelt backwards) seriously dated Tess Tracy at a time when Tess was annoyed that Dick Tracy continually delayed their marriage. After he and Tess were married, Nuremoh dazzled Junior with his ability to hit a small target with a thrown baseball from an extreme distance.
Tess and Nuremoh were married after a speedy courtship. Tess soon found out that Nuremoh was already married, but had kept his first wife a secret from his wealthy family. When Nuremoh accidentally killed his wife during an attempt to murder Tess, he took up his wife's body and jumped off a cliff to his death (despite Tess' attempts to prevent him for doing so).
Tess subsequently became involved with another of Nuremoh's relatives, but she eventually reconciled with Dick Tracy.
