An autopsy report released on Tuesday showed Bob Lee, the founder of Cash App, had cocaine in his system at the time of death.
Lee was fatally stabbed to death in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill Neighborhood on April 4.
According to AP, an autopsy from San Francisco’s medical examiner showed the Cash App founder suffered knife wounds that pierced his heart and lung.
The toxicology report also showed Lee, 43, had cocaine, ketamine and alcohol in his system at the time of the stabbing, but the substances were not indicated as a factor 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.
