Police arrest tech exec for the murder of Cash App founder Bob Lee
A tech executive has been arrested in San Francisco for the murder of Cash App founder Bob Lee.
Mission Local reported that the father of two was 43 when he was stabbed in the ritzy Rincon Hill neighborhood just after 2:30 am on April 4. Lee is believed to have known his killer.
Mission Local reported that the police have not yet confirmed the identity of this suspect. However, he is another tech executive living in the Bay Area.
It is unclear if the man attended the same tech conference Lee was in town for, but the pair were seen in a car together at around 2.30 am, moments before the stabbing.
They had some kind of confrontation that led to the attack, according to police sources. Lee somehow staggered out of the car and was picked up on surveillance footage struggling to walk nearby afterward.
The harrowing surveillance footage shows Lee stumbling through the city streets after being stabbed.
Lee called 911 himself telling them he’d been stabbed and needed help. By the time cops arrived, he was unconscious and later succumbed to his injuries from the slashing at the hospital later that morning.
