A tech consultant has been arrested and charged with murder for the fatal stabbing of Bob Lee, founder of Cash App. The incident occurred last week in downtown San Francisco.
Nima Momeni, aged 38, was taken into custody on Thursday in Emeryville, a suburb of San Francisco, and has been charged with murder in Lee’s death. Momeni and Lee knew each other, but the police chief did not provide any information regarding the connection between them.
The death of Lee has shocked the tech industry, and his friends and former colleagues have mourned the loss of a brilliant and generous man. The police discovered Lee with stab wounds in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill neighbourhood at 2:30 a.m. on April 4, and he died later in the hospital. However, the police chief did not disclose how they linked Momeni to the crime, refused to disclose a motive, and did not indicate if they had found any weapons.
The suspect is expected to be arraigned on Friday, and prosecutors will request that he be held without bail.
The tech industry has been left stunned by the murder of Bob Lee and the arrest of Nima Momeni in connection with the incident. The motive and details surrounding the crime are still unclear, and the suspect is yet to be arraigned.
