Police Arrest Man in Cash App Founder Stabbing

According to San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott, Nima Momeni has been detained in connection with the murder of Cash App inventor Bob Lee. Scott announced during a news conference on Thursday. Momeni was identified by Scott as a 38-year-old Californian from Emeryville.

Scott claimed that Momeni and Lee were acquainted, but he gave no other information regarding their relationship. Momeni has owned an IT company that, according to its website, offers services like technical support, according to California Secretary of State records.

According to Scott, Momeni was apprehended without a hitch and transferred to the San Francisco County jail, where he was charged with a single murder charge. Early on April 4th, Lee was stabbed to death in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill neighborhood. A local Bay Area news outlet said that a 911 call and surveillance camera both showed the immediate aftermath of the stabbing crime.

The San Francisco Standard, an online news outlet, examined the camera tape and discovered Lee strolling alone down Main Street while holding his cell phone in the other hand and grabbing his side, leaving a trail of blood in his wake. The news of Lee’s passing sparked shock and mourning among many in the tech community and beyond.

Some people, including Elon Musk, also claimed that the episode demonstrated how horrifying San Francisco’s violent crime is. However, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins blasted Musk’s statement on Thursday, calling it “reckless and irresponsible.”

While authorities were actively trying to solve the case, Jenkins claimed Musk’s comment “assumed incorrect circumstances” regarding the killing and “spread misinformation” as a result. Lee, a former chief technology officer at Square, contributed to the introduction of the Cash App.

Later, in 2021, he became the chief product officer of MobileCoin, a cryptocurrency and digital payments firm. Lee’s family congratulated San Francisco Police in a statement “for bringing his killer to justice.” “Our next steps will be to work with the District Attorney’s office to ensure that this person is not allowed to hurt anyone else or walk free,” the family stated on Thursday.

People interact with the technology that Bob helped create every day throughout the world. The statement reads, “Bob will live on via these connections and his ambitions of bettering all of our lives. The CEO of MobileCoin, Josh Goldbard, previously told that Bob “was a dynamo, a force of nature. Bob was truly the real deal.
