Bob Lee, the founder of Cash App, had cocaine in his system at the time of his death, according to an autopsy report released on Tuesday.
Lee was stabbed to death on April 4 in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill neighborhood.
According to the Associated Press, an autopsy performed by the San Francisco medical examiner revealed that the Cash App inventor suffered knife wounds that entered his heart and lung.
The toxicology analysis also revealed that Lee, 43, had cocaine, ketamine, and alcohol in his system at the time of the stabbing, but that the narcotics were not a cause in his death.
Nima Momeni, an IT entrepreneur, was charged with murder with respect to Lee’s death.
Authorities said Lee and Momeni knew each other and were in a vehicle shortly before the stabbing.
Momeni’s arraignment was initially scheduled for April 25 but has been rescheduled for May 18.
Paula Canny, Momeni’s attorney, said the toxicology report would be a factor in the defence of her client.
Canny said she requested another delay in Momeni’s arraignment because she was not yet ready to set a firm date for a preliminary hearing.
“Bob Lee’s system was like the Walgreens of recreational drugs, people under the influence do not act like themselves and make bad decisions and do bad things,” she said.
