As far as I understand it, the comic book store was a few blocks from where Gerard was staying at 105 Kent St (he went missing from near 99 Kent St). I assume it was in the group of shops I have circled on the map, which is quite an extensive little strip, and may also have been back then.BRE went to Wife No. 1s house at Javanica Ct, Warnbro (stayed for 10 or 15 mins). Thinking that was sometime after April 1997, because he'd met Wife2 on 1 April 1997.
The third occasion she saw the accused was at a bank on the Rockingham foreshore. At this meeting the accused gave Wife1 the papers for the Mazda vehicle she drove. She recalled that once the house was sold, the vehicle loan was paid out and the vehicle transferred into her name. From memory the Fountain Way house was sold early April 1997, so this encounter was probably May/June 1997.
Strange that year another murder occurred in the vicinity. The abduction and homicide of Gerard Ross 14 Oct 1997. Gerard was last seen in Kent St Rockingham heading toward a comic store. Any ideas where the comic store might have been?
Was Bates Pets paradise anywhere near the comic store.
The latest address I have for Bates Pets Paradise is in the Rockingham Centre, at the bottom of the map. It may have moved. However, as per your post, Edwards first wife met him at a bank on the Rockingham Foreshore, which I presume was in the strip of shops I have circled, where I think the comic book store was.
