The tech world was shaken on April 14th when news broke that Cash App founder Bob Lee had been stabbed to death in what was initially believed to be a random street crime.
However, new details have emerged that shed light on the real culprit behind Lee’s tragic demise.
According to prosecutors, tech entrepreneur Nima Momeni was responsible for Lee’s death. The motive? Concerns that Lee was involved with Momeni’s younger sister, Khazar Elyassnia.
The plot thickens as little is known about Elyassnia, except that she is married to prominent San Francisco plastic surgeon Dino Elyassnia and was seen in court with her husband during Momeni’s initial appearance.
In court documents, Elyassnia is mentioned in reference to a FaceTime call between Momeni and Lee.
The documents state that the relationship between Elyassnia and her husband was possibly in jeopardy and an unnamed witness was unsure if Lee and Elyassnia had an intimate relationship.
Momeni questioned Lee about his relationship with Elyassnia prior to the alleged stabbing, and court documents indicate that Lee visited Elyassnia’s apartment at the Millennium Tower on the night he was killed.
The shocking murder of Bob Lee and the involvement of a fellow tech entrepreneur has sent shockwaves through the tech world. Many are left wondering how such a tragedy could occur among colleagues and peers.
The case also raises important questions about the pressures and risks associated with success in the tech industry.
As the industry continues to grow and evolve, it’s crucial that leaders and entrepreneurs prioritize the well-being and safety of their colleagues and the community at large.
