NEW YORK, KOMPAS.com — A tech entrepreneur’s dismembered body was found on Tuesday inside his luxury New York apartment on the Lower East Side.
No arrests have been made in connection to the 33-year-old tech entrepreneur's, Fahmi Saleh, gruesome death.
Police were contacted after a relative of Fahmi Saleh went to his luxury condo only to discover a horrific scene.
Responding officers reported finding a clothed torso and bags containing a head and arms. An electric saw was also found in the living room of the luxury condo.
Security video revealed Fahmi Saleh leaving an elevator leading directly to his two-bedroom apartment earlier Tuesday afternoon.
An individual dressed entirely in black and wearing a mask closely followed Fahmi, according to a law enforcement official who was briefed on the case.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to ongoing investigations, added that soon after, a struggle ensued at the entrance of the apartment.
Police believe that the relative may have interrupted the intruder before that person fled out a back exit.
The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide after an autopsy found the cause of death was multiple stab wounds to the body.
Saleh was the chief executive officer of a ride-hailing motorcycle startup called Gokada that began operating in Nigeria in 2018.
