The police have arrested the personal assistant of Fahim Saleh, a 33-year-old tech entrepreneur found decapitated and dismembered in his Manhattan apartment.
The personal assistant, Tyrese Haspil, 21, was arrested early on Friday and is expected to be charged in the grisly killing, according to two officials briefed on the matter.
The entrepreneur, Fahim Saleh, 33, was discovered dead on Tuesday afternoon by his sister inside his $2.25 million condo in a luxury building on the Lower East Side, the police said. She had gone to check in on him after not hearing from him for about a day.
She found a gruesome scene: Mr Saleh’s head and limbs had been removed, and parts of his body had been placed in large plastic bags. An electric saw was still plugged in nearby.
The personal assistant, Tyrese Devon Haspil, 21, was expected to be charged in a criminal complaint with second degree murder and other crimes.
