Tyrese Haspil, a 25-year-old for­mer per­son­al assis­tant, is on tri­al for the bru­tal mur­der of his tech CEO boss, Fahim Saleh. Haspil’s defense attor­neys are argu­ing that the killing was a crime of pas­sion, dri­ven by his des­per­ate fear of los­ing his French girl­friend, Marine Chaveuz.

A Web of Lies and Theft:

The pros­e­cu­tion alleges that Haspil, after steal­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars from Saleh, feared his girl­friend would leave him if she dis­cov­ered his crimes. He was des­per­ate to cov­er his tracks, lead­ing him to plan and exe­cute the murder.

A Devastating Discovery:

Saleh, the CEO of the Niger­ian motor­bike start­up Goka­da, had con­front­ed Haspil about miss­ing funds in Jan­u­ary 2020. After dis­cov­er­ing that $90,000 had dis­ap­peared from a cor­po­rate account, Saleh allowed Haspil to pay back the mon­ey through a pay­ment plan. How­ev­er, Haspil con­tin­ued to steal from Sale­h’s com­pa­ny, ulti­mate­ly lead­ing to the fatal confrontation.

A Calculated Murder:

Pros­e­cu­tors allege that Haspil care­ful­ly researched and planned the mur­der, pur­chas­ing sup­plies from Home Depot to clean up the crime scene. He is accused of using a Taser to sub­due Saleh, then stab­bing him to death and dis­mem­ber­ing his body. Haspil’s metic­u­lous cleanup efforts were ulti­mate­ly thwart­ed by a sin­gle “anti-felon disk” iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tag, which was recov­ered at the scene and linked to the Taser he had ordered online.

A Twisted Defense:

Haspil’s defense attor­neys are argu­ing that he suf­fered from “extreme emo­tion­al dis­tur­bance” at the time of the mur­der, dri­ven by his fear of being aban­doned by his girl­friend. They claim that his actions, while seem­ing­ly irra­tional, were a des­per­ate attempt to pre­vent his girl­friend from leav­ing him.

A Shocking Outcome:

The tri­al is ongo­ing, with the jury weigh­ing the evi­dence and decid­ing whether to con­vict Haspil of first-degree mur­der or manslaugh­ter. The out­come of the case will deter­mine whether Haspil faces a lengthy prison sen­tence or a less­er punishment.
