A tech mogul who helped create money wire app CashApp and the Android operating system has been found stabbed to death in San Francisco.
Police were called to the city’s glitzy Rincon Hill neighbourhood in the small hours of Tuesday (March 4) morning after 43-year-old Bob Lee was stabbed by an unknown attacker with a blade.
Dad-of-Two Lee, who was the chief product officer of crypto currency MobileCoin, was found suffering multiple stab wounds by the entrance of a high-rise building near the posh waterfront on the northeast side of the city, MailOnline reported.

Lee, who was known by his friends as “Crazy Bob”, was an early investor in several major tech firms, including SpaceX, Clubhouse and Figma.
Heartbroken friends have made public statements mourning Lee’s untimely passing.
Former MMA fighter Jake Shields appeared to break the death of his “good friend” on Twitter, writing: “He was in the “good” part of the city and appeared to have been targeted in a random mugging/attack.
“F**k San Francisco.”

Twitter chief Elon Musk said in response to Shield’s tweet: “Very sorry to hear that. 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.”
San Francisco’s police department said that while officers called paramedics and gave first aid, the tech tycoon died after he was transported to a local hospital with “life-threatening injuries”.
The department added that no arrests have been made in the homicide and that the case remains an active investigation.
