- Personal assistant of Gokada CEO Fahim Saleh, who was found murdered and dismembered in his home, has been arrested
- 21-year-old Tyrese Devon Haspil, is believed to have intentions of killing Saleh after he found that he (suspect) embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from him.
It was earlier reported that Fahim was murdered by a professional who rode with him up in the elevator then got out when it opened directly onto Saleh’s apartment.
According to reports, the killer was dressed in a mask, gloves and hat and wearing what police sources described as a ‘ninja outfit‘, he had a suitcase with him – presumably to remove his remains when he’d finished the job.
The killer was said to have abandoned the scene and escaped midway into the operation when Saleh’s sister unexpectedly showed up. He reportedly left his electronic saw behind. Police discovered that Saleh’s legs below the knees and his arms had been removed, with the missing body parts placed into bags.
According to the New York Times, the late Saleh’s assistant, Haspil who was arrested early on Friday July 17, is believed to have intentions of killing Saleh after he found that he (suspect) embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from him.
Saleh did not report the alleged theft to authorities, but brokered a repayment plan with Haspil. He is expected to be charged in a criminal complaint with second degree murder and other crimes. The police are expected to announce the arrest at a news conference later on Friday.
It was earlier reported that the limbless, headless torso of the millionaire tech entrepreneur was found inside his $2.25 million apartment in New York on Tuesday afternoon, with an electric saw lying next to the remains, police in New York said.
