Murder of Bob Lee
San Francisco’s law enforcement agents have reportedly detained the 38-year-old tech-consultant and entrepreneur – Nima Momeni – for the alleged murder of Bob Lee (founder of the mobile payment service that allows users to buy and sell bitcoin – CashApp). The incident happened last week when Lee was stabbed to death in the Rincon Hill neighborhood. Numerous prominent individuals, including Twitter’s owner Elon Musk, castigated San Francisco for the violence in the city.
The Los Angeles Times reported that San Francisco’s police took into custody Nima Momeni for supposedly murdering CashApp’s founder Bob Lee on April 4. Prosecutors claimed he used a knife without disclosing the motive behind the gruesome act. The authorities also outlined that the case is still under investigation, meaning an eventual trial will occur once all details are clarified.
It is worth mentioning that Momeni purportedly changed his behavior in the days after the crime. One of his neighbors said he “seemed really unsettled” lately and asked him if they’d like to move to Colombia together. In addition, Momeni was charged with driving with a suspended license in 2011 and selling a switchblade knife in 2018.
