Missing 71-year-old Found Dead in Melbourne Last Week
It has been one week since the body of a 71-year-old was discovered in the stairwell of Sydney’s Westfield Bondi Junction. Bernard ‘Butch’ Gore had been missing for three weeks before being found dead. The reports stated that the victim suffered from dementia. He was last seen taking a walk from Woollahra to a shopping center to meet his wife and daughter on January 6.
Police did not treat the death as suspicious. The spokesperson from the department said that the police were unable to provide details about the injuries sustained by the victim. It is believed that it was the effect of dementia that made the Melbourne victim struggle to find appropriate directions, leading him to the mishap.
