A stab victim who was found in downtown San Francisco, USA, on Tuesday has been identified as Cash App founder Bob Lee.
Lee’s identity has not yet been formally released by the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD), but the tech executive was named by NBC Bay Area as the deceased victim. According to reports, Lee had returned to San Francisco from Miami for a quick visit.
SFPD officers responded to a report of a stabbing at approximately 2:35 a.m. on Tuesday and found Lee suffering from apparent stab wounds. He was transported to a local hospital, but later succumbed to his injuries.
Lee was the Chief Product Officer of MobileCoin. Prior to his post at the cryptocurrency company, Lee worked with Google for a number of years before going on to create Cash App at Block. Following the news of his passing, Lee’s industry peers and friends offered their condolences to his family and expressed their shock over his murder. Lee has been remembered as a good father and a generous human being.
So far, no arrests have been made in connection to the tech founder’s murder. Some have criticised San Francisco city officials handling of crime, and Twitter CEO Elon Musk has questioned whether stronger action is being taken to incarcerate repeat offenders.

“Many people I know have been severely assaulted. Violent crime in SF is horrific, and even if attackers are caught, they are often released immediately,” Musk stated in response to Lee’s death.
