Bob Lee died in hospital after being found suffering from stab wounds in the San Francisco Police Department earlier this month. The death of this actor of the tech universe sent shock waves through the crypto space. That said, the San Francisco police have just arrested a man who may be the culprit of this heinous crime.
The attack on Bob Lee: a premeditated attack?
Police Chief Bill Scott recently announced the arrest of Nima Momeni, a tech executive. On April 4, the latter would have attacked with a knife Bob Lee, the creator of Cash App, the application which had a makeover last October. The news was announced at a press conference held on April 13. San Francisco police say there are evidence that Momeni and Bob Lee knew each other. However, she made no statement about what might be the motive for the attack.
To solve this case, search and arrest warrants were executed in San Francisco and Emeryville. This resulted in Momeni being taken into custody, according to San Francisco police. That said, Bill Scott clarified that Bob Lee assault case not yet closed. Additionally, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said, “We didn’t know anything about the facts of this case immediately after it happened, none of us knew.».
Meanwhile, the fact that the suspect and victim knew each other gives the impression that the attack was not random. But, several media have indicated that San Francisco is a city “plagued by crime“. That said, the San Francisco district attorney said:I insisted, through Twitter and TV news, that the media, but also the people of San Francisco and everyone else, not jump to conclusions about what happened in this case. ».
It is currently unclear what charges could be brought against the suspect Nima Momeni. San Francisco Mayor London Breed recently called the case a murder. All told, the death of Bob Lee remains a tragic loss for the crypto industry.
