As a result of Police enquiries into the suspicious death of 64 year old bus driver Herman Curry, four people have approached Police today and provided information surrounding his death.
Acting Wellington District Crime Services Manager Detective Inspector Darrin Thomson says Police have recovered Mr Curry’s cash box today, which was stolen from the Waterloo Interchange Bus Depot on Friday night. Mr Curry was discovered at around 10pm. CPR was performed by emergency services but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
“A 15 year old male and a 16 year old male have this afternoon been referred to Youth Aid in relation to the theft of Mr Curry’s cash box and a 17 year old man and a 20 year old man will be appearing in the Lower Hutt District Court on Tuesday, also charged with theft.”
Detective Inspector Thomson says preliminary results of the post-mortem examination carried out on Mr Curry’s body yesterday do not show any evidence of injuries consistent with any type of assault.
“Further enquiries are underway and a team of 30-strong Police staff will continue working on the investigation in coming days to reach a final conclusion on Mr Curry’s death.”
Police would like to thank members of the Hutt Valley community for providing Police with valuable information over the past two days which has been of great assistance.
