A suspect has been arrested in connection to the brutal and shocking murder of Gokada CEO, Fahim Saleh.
We had earlier reported that Fahim Saleh, was found dead and dismembered in his New York apartment, an electric saw lying next to the remains.
According to police sources, Fahim Saleh had been cut up with an electric saw, which was lying nearby and was still plugged in, by the time his body was discovered in different plastic bags.
A surveillance footage of the suspect has been seen, with the suspect wearing a hat and mask covering his face, as he entered the apartment elevator with Saleh.
According to New York Times, the 21-year-old, Tyrese Devon Haspil, the personal assistant of Fahim Saleh was arrested early on Friday and is expected to be charged in the killing.
Tyrese Devon Haspil, is reportedly expected to be charged in a criminal complaint with second degree murder and other crimes, as detectives believe the motive for the killing stemmed from Mr. Saleh having discovered that the assistant had stolen tens of thousands of dollars from him.
The police has also concluded that Fahim Saleh was killed on Monday, the day before his body was found, and that the killer used his employer’s credit card to pay for a car to a Home Depot, on West 23rd Street in Manhattan, to buy cleaning supplies to sanitize the crime scene, the official said.
The killer returned to Mr. Saleh’s apartment the next day to dismember the body and clean up the crime scene.
