Autopsy Shows CashApp Founder Consumed Alcohol, Cocaine Before His Murder
Autopsy result shared on Tuesday revealed that Cash App founder Bob Lee, who was stabbed to death in San Francisco in April, ingested alcohol, cocaine, and ketamine before he was killed.
According to Bloomberg, the 43-year-old tech executive also had a compound that forms when alcohol and cocaine mix, called cocaethylene, in his system when he died, according to findings from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
The report, by Assistant Medical Examiner Dr. Ellen Moffatt, didn’t link those substances and Lee’s cause of death, which was listed as multiple stab wounds. The manner and method of death, she concluded, was homicide by sharp injury.
Lee suffered three stab wounds: two to the chest and one to his hip. One of those chest wounds was between two and three inches deep and pierced the “right lateral anterior inferior ventricle of the heart” and the “right posterior lateral inferior ventricle,” the medical examiner said.
Lee was stabbed at about 2:30 a.m. local time on April 4. Doctors worked for nearly four hours to save his life, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital at 6:49 a.m.
