Tyrese Devon Haspil, Fahim Saleh’s 21-year old erstwhile personal assistant who is suspected to have gruesomely murdered the Gokada boss has been arrested and is expected to be charged with second degree murder and other crimes as local police announce the arrest at a news conference later, New York Times reports.
Saleh’s dismembered body, parts of which were in plastic bags, had been found in his Manhattan’s Lower East Side apartment on Tuesday (July 14), with an electric saw also on the scene. Law enforcement officials reportedly believe Haspil murdered Saleh who had found out about his theft of “tens of thousands of dollars.”
The gruesome murder happened even though Saleh did not report the theft and had agreed to a repayment plan for Haspil to refund the stolen cash, The Times reports. Saleh was 33.
