The men opened up a manhole on West 58th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue in Manhattan at about 3:10AM to start their workday, but instead found the decomposing body of a man approximately ten feet beneath the surface.

The man, who may have been down there for a while, appears to be homeless, said authorities.

Investigators at the scene donned white Tyvek suits and gas masks before venturing into the manhole to inspect the remains.

No obvious indicators pointing to any initial determination of cause of death were present at the scene, said authorities, and would therefore have to wait for the results of an Autopsy to be performed by the Medical Examiner.

In addition to not knowing whether or not the man was a victim of foul play, Investigators are also working to determine how he ended up inside the manhole, as these covers can weigh up to 400lbs. The Investigation, and the mystery of this incident, continues.

The man was not authorized to use the ‘Drop Key’, says the Department of Buildings, which is only to be used by Elevator Technicians and Emergency Responders. The DOB has issued a Violation to the owner of the building for ‘Failure to Safeguard the Elevator’. The elevator itself was not found to be defective.

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.
