Responding medics rushed Yun, who lives in Queens, to Montefiore Hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Police say his injuries are consistent with being struck by a vehicle, which did not remain at the scene, making his death a criminal act.

A female bus driver, who watched as Investigators worked the scene, confirmed she knew the deceased and they both worked as Bus Drivers for Consolidated Bus Transit. “He was a very good driver” she said before getting emotional and walking away, declining to give her name.

37yr old James Currie, who reportedly works with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority as a Station Cleaner, was taken from the 5th Precinct in Manhattan on Friday to face a Manhattan Judge on charges of Concealment of a Human Corpse.

The corpse in question was seven month old baby boy Mason Saldana, the son of James Currie, who was spotted floating in the East River along with a backpack underneath the Brooklyn Bridge on the Manhattan side on the afternoon of Sunday August 5, 2018.

Investigators strongly believe that Currie, who lives in the Bronx, killed the boy sometime during the period of Saturday August 4 to Sunday August 5, when he was spotted on surveillance video leaving his apartment building with the backpack attached to his front and covered with a blanket.

Investigators were able to track his movements into lower Manhattan, where he was again spotted on surveillance video walking along the East River Esplanade with the backpack, not far from where his son was eventually found.

Currie then boarded a flight out of JFK Airport on the afternoon of Monday August 6, beginning a long journey – and what he thought was his escape – to the Country of Thailand. Unfortunately for him, with NYPD Detectives in ‘full court press’ mode, his plan was uncovered and Thai Authorities, who were put on alert, waited patiently for him to arrive in the Country.

James Currie was snatched from the doors of freedom upon his arrival in Thailand and promptly brought back to New York to answer some tough questions. Detectives are still gathering evidence and are not yet in a position to charge Currie with the actual murder of his son. The Medical Examiner is working to determine the official cause of death.
