Prosecutors and Lee’s associates contend that what actually occurred diverges significantly from this initial account.
Participants in “The Lifestyle,” a San Francisco underground party culture where casual sex and recreational drug use were frequent, as well as others who knew Lee, told The Wall Street Journal that Lee was a part of it.
Khazar Momeni, the sister of Nima Momeni, the man who was arrested in April for Lee’s murder, was one among the persons with whom Lee interacted while out and about in San Francisco. He’s going to say he’s innocent.
The married Ms. Momeni and Lee apparently had a casual relationship.
Attorneys for Ms. Momeni informed the Journal that there were numerous unfounded rumours circulating about the case. “Ms. Momeni cares about and is there for her brother. What transpired here is tragic, and Ms. Momeni is very pained by the pain the Lee family is experiencing as they mourn their awful loss.
Prosecutors claim that Mr. Momeni approached Lee about his sister in the hours prior to his death and asked if she had done anything inappropriate to which Lee denied. In a later text message recognizing the altercation, Khazar Momeni reportedly wrote Lee the this message: “Just wanted to make sure your doing ok Cause know nima came wayyyyyy down hard on you.”
Prosecutors claim Lee took the computer executive to a remote location where he fatally stabbed him with a kitchen knife hours after the alleged altercation when they were both observed getting into a white BMW. An autopsy revealed that Lee had used cocaine and ketamine before to his away. A later date this month will see the arraignment of Mr. Momeni, an IT executive.
