Tech executive stabbed

Court documents released on Friday, April 14, revealed that CashApp founder, Bob Lee, was stabbed to death by the 38-year-old founder of software company Expand It, Nima Momeni.

The suspect allegedly stabbed him through the heart with a kitchen knife after they argued about his sister and whether they were doing anything inappropriate.

Police claim that hours before Lee was killed, he and Nima spoke on the phone about his sister, Khazar Momeni, who is married to someone else.

According to an anonymous witness, Nima questioned Lee about his relationship with his sister and whether she was “doing drugs or anything inappropriate,” to which Lee replied that nothing was wrong.

Though it is unclear what happened after that, Nima allegedly drove Lee to a “dark and secluded area” of San Francisco that night and stabbed him through the heart with a kitchen knife.

Nima brought the knife from his house, which authorities say proves the murder was “planned and deliberate.”

The document also claimed that Khazar texted Lee around the time he was killed to check on him.

The message reads,

“Just wanted to make sure your doing ok Cause I know nima came wayyyyyy down hard on you.
And thank you for being such a class man handling it with class. Love you Selfish pricks”

Meanwhile, Nima was arrested on Tuesday, April 13, and will face charges in court for the murder of the Cash App CEO. He is set to be arraigned on April 25, and risks more than 20 years in prison if convicted.
