Lee’s passing was announced in a statement by MobileCoin. The sentence omitted a how-to.
When police were called to a stabbing call at around 2:35 a.m. in the city’s Rincon Hill district, they discovered the victim, who was rushed to a hospital where he passed away from his wounds, according to police.
The city’s medical examiner’s office hadn’t yet identified the victim as of Tuesday evening, but friends of Lee’s told the media he was the victim.
No arrest has been made in the case and San Francisco police haven’t released any details about any possible suspects.
On Twitter Tuesday evening, a flood of messages eulogized Lee. Many included his @crazybob Twitter handle.
Was scheduled to work on @mobilecoin with you tomorrow AM @crazybob. You always believed in me, I’ll be forever grateful.
Committed to seeing this project for as long as the Team will have me, to the very end.
