July 16 (Reuters) - A technology entrepreneur found slain in his New York City apartment earlier this week died of multiple stab wounds, the city's medical examiner said on Thursday.

Police said earlier this week that the death of Fahim Saleh, 33, was a homicide but have given few other details. Local media have reported that his body was discovered decapitated and dismembered with a power saw plugged in nearby. (Reporting by Dan Whitcomb Editing by Chris Reese)
