A man has been charged with the murder of leading tech entrepreneur Fahim Saleh who was found dead in New York on Tuesday, police say. His 21-year-old executive assistant Tyrese Haspil has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. The suspect is alleged to have owed Saleh tens of thousands of dollars, police said. Mr. Haspil is accused of using a taser on Saleh and then fatally stabbing him on Monday. "[The suspect] handled [Saleh's] finances and personal matters," NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison told reporters after the arrest on Friday. 

Cause of Death of Fahim Saleh

On Tuesday (14th July 2020), Fahim's body was found decapitated and dismembered at his luxury apartment on the ''Lower East Side'' of Manhattan. Police have said that he was killed the day before (13th July 2020) in New York City, U.S. Saleh's sister found his body at around 3:30 p.m when she went to check on him after not hearing from him for a day. She found a grisly scene and called the police. According to ''The New York Times'', detectives found his torso and an electric saw nearby. Fahim's head and limbs were later found in the apartment in garbage bags. There were several large plastic bags in the apartment, and it appeared that some effort had been made to clean up any evidence of what had happened. 

On Monday evening a surveillance camera had captured a video of Fahim in the building's elevator with another person who was wearing a black suit and black mask. In the video, the elevator door opens and Fahim goes into the apartment and the masked person follows directly behind him, and two immediately start to struggle.  Detectives suspect that the killer fled the scene through the backdoor after Saleh's sister arrived looking for him, according to another police source. A law enforcement agency said that the scene looked like a ''professional'' killing because there was almost no blood left and the apartment was not looted.

Pathao and Gokada praised him after his death; Gokada called him "a great leader, inspiration and positive light for all of us" in its tweet. His vision and belief in us will be with us forever, and we will miss him dearly.

On July 17, his personal assistant, Tyrese Devon Haspil, was arrested and charged with murder.
