Retired MTA Bus Driver Found Dead

These posts are always the hardest to write. I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the the family & friends of 46 year old Otis James, a retired MTA bus driver who was found stabbed to death in his Bushwick home yesterday. Here is more via a report from Ashley Soley Cerro of PIX 11:

The body of a man who was stabbed to death was discovered by his wife and daughter in his Brooklyn home, police said Wednesday.

Otis James, 46, was identified by police as the man found dead in his home on Central Avenue near Cornelia Street at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

James’ wife and her daughter discovered his body next to a knife, police said.

He had been stabbed several times and his death has been deemed a homicide, according to police.

James was an MTA bus driver from 2005 to May 2017, when he retired on disability, transit officials said.

Police have a person they want to question. Here is more about that via a report from News 12 Brooklyn:

A man is wanted for questioning in the death of a former MTA bus driver.

I hope the person responsible for this reprehensible crime is brought to justice & faces the stiffest penalties possible. May Otis rest in peace on the other side.
