CASH APP FOUNDER BOB LEE REPORTEDLY STABBED TO DEATH
The tech exec jailed for the fatal stabbing of CashApp founder Bob Lee has a previous arrest for carrying a switchblade - and potentially lied about attending a prestigious Bay Area school.
Facing a murder charge for the high-profile stabbing, Iranian-American tech consultant Nima Momeni was arrested on Thursday, nine days after Lee's April 4 stabbing sent shockwaves throughout the Bay Area.
Many had assumed Lee's murder the work of a vagrant given the city's crime situation but cops have since revealed the 43-year-old had known the suspect - spurring a boastful statement from the city's Mayor, London Breed.
Meanwhile, new details about Momeni continue to come to light. Supposedly a graduate of UC Berkley, the school says they have no record the 38-year-old ever attended. The condo where he was arrested - a rental - doubled as his home and workspace. As for his IT company, neighbors said he is its sole employee.
Cops so far have kept mum about Momeni's relationship with Lee, only confirming they 'knew each other.' Local outlets report the pair may have met through Momeni's sister - the owner of a luxury apartment blocks from where Lee was found.
