I have the deluxe version of SH2 that comes with a playable Maria story, I've finished and all that crap but never figured it out who that Ernest Baldwin was, does he make any appearence or at least he's named in other Silent hills ? Please..
He was only in and referenced in SH2. He was a ghost who was most likely trapped in the house. It's unknown how he died, but some people think it might be his corpse outside the house. Would make a little sense; perhaps he tried to get to the apartments to get the white liquid for the ritual, but got owned by a creature. Pretty tragic.
