Not a day goes by that Emerald Baz is not tormented by the mystery surrounding the death of her husband Ian Baz Bosch, who was fatally stabbed in November.
During an appeal for any witnesses to come forward, Ms Baz, 41, said the tragic death of her estranged husband, who was stabbed while waiting at a bus stop near Coolbellup Shopping Centre, was an “unimaginable loss and pain”.
“His children miss him immensely and he’s left a huge gap in our lives, particularly for the children,” Ms Baz said.
The 43-year-old Coolbellup landscaper was catching a bus to run some errands before picking up his 10-year-old son and his five-year-old daughter, who he was going to take to a birthday party.
After alighting from a bus on Coolbellup Avenue about 7.30am, he walked to another bus stop on Cordelia Avenue, where he was stabbed by an unknown offender.
He then ran to the main entrance of the shopping centre to seek help. He was taken to Fiona Stanley Hospital but died shortly after.
Police investigations have not established any link between Mr Baz Bosch and the offender.
“It (the attack) just doesn’t make sense,” Ms Baz said.
“Nothing can justify taking someone’s life and it hurts. We loved him.
“He was the kind of person who would help in any way if he could.
“If anyone, including the person who killed him, had asked him for anything, he would have given it up gladly, he definitely wasn’t a confrontational person.
“There is a person out there who is still a threat to the community. While that person is still out there, there is potential for another family, another victim to go through a devastating event,” Ms Baz said.
WA Police said some people captured in CCTV footage had been identified and spoken to by police, while inquiries into others were continuing.
Police said they were “particularly keen” to speak to a man who was walking a small white dog near the shopping centre that morning.
