NEW YORK, NY. (THECOUNT) — Tyrese Devon Haspil, a former assistant of tech CEO Fahim Saleh, has been arrested in his murder, multiple sources said Friday.
Haspil, 21, is expected to be charged in murder of Saleh, who was found decapitated and dismembered inside his New York City apartment on Tuesday.
Detectives believe Haspil killed Saleh after discovering he allegedly embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from the CEO.
Saleh had declined to report the alleged theft to authorities after brokering a repayment plan with Haspil.
He was killed Monday, with Haspil allegedly first zapping him with a Taser and then fatally stabbing him, according to the Times. Haspil then allegedly returned the next day to chop up Saleh’s body and clean up the crime scene, reported NYPost on Friday.
The body of the CEO was discovered Tuesday by a concerned cousin who hadn’t heard from him in days, sources previously told The Post.
