CrimeOnline’s Nancy Grace says no one would help Cash App founder Bob Lee, as he was fatally stabbed earlier this month in San Fransisco.
On Thursday, police arrested Nima Momeni, 38, and booked him on suspicion of murder, San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott said Thursday. Police arrested Momeni in the San Fransisco suburb of Emeryville after the victim was found with stab wounds at around 4 a.m. on April 4.
Lee later died at an area hospital.
Earlier this week, San Francisco Mayor London Breed asked people not to jump to conclusions regarding the killing, adding that progress in tackling violent crime is being made in the city.
The victim and the suspect reportedly knew each other, although, at this time, it’s unclear how.
“I’m not sure why the mayor is bragging that they knew each other. The fact is that the city is drenched in violence,” Grace told Fox News Digital. “You’ve got a multi-millionaire who gets stabbed, literally, on Main Street, and nobody will help him.”
“And then the very next day, a former fire department commissioner gets attacked outside his mother’s house. So, I’m not quite sure where the mayor is getting crowing rights but they are very misplaced.”

Known as “Crazy Bob,” Lee was the chief product officer of crypto-currency start-up MobileCoin at the time of his death. The San Francisco Standard reported that Lee moved to Miami in October 2022.
Lee joined MobileCoin in 2021 and had been the chief technology officer of Square, the payment company owned by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey that was renamed Block in 2021. Cash App was launched by Square in 2013 as “Square Cash.”
Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call San Francisco police at 415-575-4444.
