Former personal assistant of Fahim Saleh, the 33-year-old tech entrepreneur who was found brutally murdered at his apartment, has been arrested.
The 21-year-old Tyrese Devon Haspil, has been apprehended as a suspect by the Police for investigating.
SOFO VILLA reported earlier that the founder of Gokada was killed by a professional who came out with him from an elevator directly onto Saleh’s apartment.
The killer dressed in a mask, gloves and hat and wearing what police sources described as a ‘ninja outfit’, 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 showed up unexpectedly. He reportedly left his electronic saw behind. Police found that Saleh’s legs below the knees and his arms had been removed, with the missing body parts placed into bags.
According to New York Times report, Haspil who was arrested early on Friday July 17, is believed to have high motives of killing Saleh after the deceased found that he embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from him. Saleh did not report the alleged theft to authorities, as he tried talks of a repayment plan with Haspil.
He is expected to be charged in a criminal complaint with second degree murder and other crimes.Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
