<!– Fahim Saleh and his suspected killer Tyrese Devon Haspil, now charged with second degree murder –>
Tyrese Devon Haspil, the executive assistant to tech CEO and Gokada investor Fahim Saleh was charged Friday in New York with the grisly murder of Saleh.
Haspil was charged with second-degree murder, the New York Police Department said.
Haspil handled Saleh’s “finances and personal matters,” Harrison said.
“It is also believed that he owed the victim a significant amount of money,” he said.
Haspil allegedly attacked Saleh with a Taser at 1:45 p.m. Monday while Saleh was getting off an elevator that opened directly into his Manhattan apartment, Harrison said.
Cops were alerted to the slaying after a cousin found Saleh’s remains on Tuesday, Harrison said.
“Mr. Saleh’s cousin discovered his dismembered body in the middle of his apartment with his head, arms and legs amputated,” Harrison said,
Harrison said he wouldn’t “get into the cause of death” or answer any questions, and ended the briefing after just three minutes.
