Bob Lee, the Cash App founder found stabbed to death in San Francisco last month, ingested alcohol, cocaine, and ketamine before he was killed according to an autopsy report that has just been released.
Lee, 43, had a compound that forms when cocaine and alcohol mix called cocaethylene, in his system when he died, along with metabolized byproducts of cocaine and ketamine according to findings from the medical examiner. The analysis listed the allergy medicine known as Zyrtec as well.
The report didn’t make a link between those substances and Lee’s death which is listed as multiple stab wounds. The manner of death is listed as homicide by sharp injury.
Lee suffered three stab wounds, two to the chest, and one to the hip. One of the chest wounds was 2 to 3 inches deep piercing the right lateral anterior inferior ventricle of the heart.
The defense attorney for Momeni, the suspect in his murder, emphasized Lee’s drug use when she answered questions from reporters. “There’s a lot of drugs in Lee’s system. I mean Bob Lee’s system is like the Walgreens of recreational drugs”, Canny (the defense attorney) said after a pre-trial hearing Tuesday in San Francisco. “What happens when people take drugs?”, she said. “Generally, they act like drug people, and what drug people act like is not themselves.” She added, “Just kind of illusory and make bad decisions and do bad things”.
