The latest investigation into the gruesome murder of Fahim Saleh suggests that the “person of interest” identified in the vicious murder of tech CEO Fahim Saleh is a former employee.
The suspect was allegedly involved in a financial deal gone bad, The New York Post reported today.
The identity of the suspected killer has not been disclosed, however, New York Post said police have identified the suspect.
The New York Post cited new details emerged as police continue to hone in on the “person of interest” — described as an ex-worker whose financial agreement with Saleh soured, sources said.
Saleh was found dead Tuesday in his Lower East Side apartment — decapitated and dismembered, his limbs stuffed into plastic bags, sources said.
A concerned cousin made the grisly discovery, buzzing up to Saleh’s seventh-floor apartment and possibly scaring off the alleged killer.
Saleh was the CEO of Nigerian-based motorcycle ride-hail firm Gokada. The 33-year-old tech whiz was also an investor in Picap, another ride-sharing company in Colombia.
Prior to Gokada, Saleh founded mobile-app developer TapFury, which created popular crank-calling program PrankDial, as well as transportation-focused Pathao in his parents’ native country of Bangladesh.
Two years ago, he launched Manhattan venture capital firm Adventure Capital.
