Bob Lee, the founder of Cash App and MobileCoin CPO, was fatally stabbed early Tuesday morning in San Francisco.
San Fran police responded to reports of a stabbing around 2:35 a.m. in the city’s Rincon Hill neighborhood.
Upon their arrival, they found a 43-year-old man suffering from several “apparent stab wounds.”
Bob was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
“Despite efforts by first responders and medical personnel, the victim succumbed to his injuries,” San Francisco police said in a press release.
Bob Lee’s death is being investigated as a homicide by the San Francisco Police Department Homicide Detail.
As of Wednesday morning, no arrests have been made and police have not named a suspect.
Joshua Goldbard, the CEO of MobileCoin told ABC7 News, “Bob was a force of nature. Helped to birth Android and Cash App into our world. Moby was his dream: a privacy-protecting wallet for the 21st Century. I will miss him every day.”
I will provide updates on this story as more information becomes available.
My sincerest condolences to all who knew and loved Bob Lee.
