The decapitated and dismembered body of a self-made millionaire was found Tuesday in his luxury Manhattan apartment by a family member. New York police are now hunting for a professional killer who cut up the 33-year-old’s body with an electric saw.
The man has been identified by as Fahim Saleh, a known millionaire tech entrepreneur.
The alarm was raised after one of Saleh’s female cousins became concerned after not hearing from him for a day. She went to the seventh floor unit to check on her brother only to be met with a horrific sight.
Her cousin’s body had been cut up with a power saw, which was lying nearby and was still plugged in. The body parts had been sorted into different plastic bags.
Police believe they have surveillance footage of the suspect entering the building and then using the elevator.
Video shows the gloved suspect wearing gloves, along with a hat and mask covering his face.
Surprisingly, there was very little blood. The New York Times said that some effort had been made to clear up evidence.
Saleh had last been seen on Monday afternoon walking into his building’s elevator.
Surveillance footage is also believed to have caught the killer carrying a bag and waiting to enter the elevator with his victim.
‘The perp had a suitcase. He was very professional,’ one police source told the News.
Sources told The Post that as the pair rode up to the seventh floor apartment together, Saleh appeared puzzled, but no sooner had he stepped out into his home, the attack began.
