Fahim Saleh was a tech millionaire from New York doing business in Nigeria who was found decapitated and dismembered next to an electric saw in his luxurious Manhattan condo.
NYPD spokesman Sgt. Carlos Nieves told “We have a torso, a head that’s been removed, arms, and legs. Everything is still on the scene. We don’t have a motive.”
An electric saw was found near the body and the victim’s arms and legs below the knees were removed, and body parts were found in plastic bags found in the apartment, the sources said.
The victim was last seen on surveillance footage Monday afternoon around 1:40 pm when he entered his building’s elevator, which opens right out to his seventh-floor apartment. Furthermore, the footage from the apartment building appears to show the suspected killer carrying a bag, waiting to enter the elevator with the victim, sources said.
Furthermore, the victim gives the suspect a puzzled look during an exchange as they ride up together. As soon as the victim steps out into his apartment, the suspect can be seen attacking him. According to the law enforcement source said the crime scene looked like a “professional” killing because almost no blood was left behind and the apartment was not looted.
