Ex-personal assistant arrested in murder of tech CEO Fahim Saleh

Tyrese Devon Haspil, 21, is in custody and expected to be charged with the murder of Saleh — who was found decapitated and dismembered inside his Lower East Side apartment on Tuesday, the sources said.

The motive behind Saleh’s slaying allegedly involves stolen cash, sources said. The entrepreneur, 33, learned that Haspil allegedly swiped $100,000 from him — but instead of ratting him out to authorities, he brokered a repayment plan with the younger man.
