A former personal assistant arrested in the violent killing of technology chief of Fahim Sahil
Early Friday, a brutal murder of a 33-year-old technology pioneer Fahim Saleh, who was found cut from his home on the lower eastern side this week, was arrested early Friday. The suspect is Teres Devon Hasbel, a 21-year-old former personal assistant, who is expected to be charged with second-degree murder, among other crimes, according to The Times.

Several days after Saleh's body was found, the police began gathering events that led to his death. They already knew that a man in a black suit followed Saleh from the elevator of his building to his apartment, used the stun gun to freeze him, and then stabbed him to death. Investigators believe this happened on Monday.

The next day, the murderer returned to clean up the crime scene, but was cut off when Saleh's sister, who stopped to inspect him, ripped his apartment. Investigators believe that the murderer escaped from the apartment when Saleh's sister arrived. When she entered, her brother's body was found beheaded and cut in garbage bags. An electric saw is still nearby.

The Times newspaper reported that the police settled on a possible motive:

Investigators believe that the motive behind the killing stems from Mr. Saleh's discovery that the assistant had stolen tens of thousands of dollars from him, although Mr. Saleh did not inform the man and prepared what amounted to the payment plan and one of the officials told him to return the money.

Saleh, who founded several companies, was the CEO of Nigerian Gokada Motorcycle Exchange. "Fahim is more than you read," his family said in a statement. "It's much more than that. His brilliant and innovative mind took everyone who was part of his world on a journey and made sure no one was left behind."
