The Post Friday quoted sources as saying that a former employee has been arrested in the abusive murder of Tech CEO Fahim Saleh.
21-year-old Tyres Devon Haspil is expected to be charged with murdering Saleh – who was found nude and dismembered inside his Lower East Side apartment on Tuesday, the New York Times reported.
The Times said that Haspil acted as Saleh’s personal assistant, according to detectives who were motivated to kill him because Saleh found he would embezzle thousands of dollars from him, the Times said.
Saleh had not reported the alleged theft to the authorities – instead he prepared a repayment plan with Haspil.
According to sources on Tuesday, the entrepreneur’s body was discovered by a concerned cousin who had not heard from him in days.
According to the Times, Haspil allegedly first chanted her with a taser and then stabbed her badly. Haspil then allegedly cut Saleh’s body and cleaned the crime scene.
Security footage from inside the lift showed Salah with his alleged murderer and showed Haspill using a portable vacuum to cover his tracks, the report states.
