The 33-year-old’s personal assistant, Tyrese Devon Haspil, 21, is expected to be charged for Fahim’s murder.
Several news outlets reported the possible murder charges including the New York Times, NBC’s New York TV Station, the New York Daily News, and the New York Post.
Fahim’s luxury New York condo on the Lower East Side was the site of his grizzly murder including his own decapitation.
A spokesman for the New York Police Department disputed the report.
"Last I was told, we don't have anyone in custody," police spokesman Sergeant Vincent Marchese said by phone.
"There is no arrest. I don't know where they're getting the information from," said Vincent.
Saleh earlier this week died of multiple stab wounds to the neck and torso, the New York City medical examiner said.
His body was discovered in his apartment on Tuesday afternoon.
