Person of interest identified by NY police in Fahim Saleh murder case

New York police identified a person of interest in the grisly murder of tech entrepreneur and co-founder of Pathao, Fahim Saleh.

But they have not disclosed the identity publicly, according to ABC News.

The death has officially been deemed a homicide on Thursday, with the cause being multiple stab wounds to the neck and torso. No arrests have been made and the investigation remains ongoing.

The 33-year-old tech-entrepreneur was found dismembered and decapitated inside his luxury apartment in New York's Lower East Side on Tuesday afternoon.

The apartment was owned by the deceased and was recently purchased for $2.25 million.

Saleh's sister, who went to his apartment to check on him as he hadn't been in contact with his family for a day, discovered his body before calling the police.

Responding officers discovered a clothed torso, bags containing a head and arms and a plugged-in electric saw in the living room, police said.

An elevator surveillance camera may have caught the victim's last moments, sources said. It shows the victim getting into the elevator on Monday, followed quickly by a second man, dressed in a suit, wearing gloves, a hat and a mask over his face.

As soon as he walked out into his home, he fell to the floor after either likely being shot or stunned.

Initially, police sources said they suspected that the murder was carried out by a professional.
