Surveillance footage explained

 

Surveillance footage retrieved from Millennium Tower, where Khazar Momeni owns an apartment, showed Nima Momeni exiting a white BMW Z4 after arriving at 8:31 pm. Lee arrives at the high-rose a little more than four hours later, at 12.39 am, per court records. Shortly after 2 am, Lee and Nima Momeni are reported seen taking an elevator to the building’s lobby, getting into the suspect’s BMW, and leaving.



The court documents state that additional footage obtained by police appeared to show Lee getting stabbed by Momeni under the Bay Bridge on Main Street. The video allegedly shows a BMW and its glowing tail lights, indicating the vehicle was parked. Investigators believe Lee and Momeni were the two people standing outside of the car based on the clothing they were wearing while leaving Millennium Tower.


The duo seemed to move closer at one point before Lee walks away, appearing to be wounded. Momeni then walks to a fence — where police reportedly recovered a bloody silver and black knife (believed to be the murder weapon) — before getting back in the BMW and fleeing the scene. Court records noted that Lee was stabbed three times – once in the hip and twice in the chest. One of the stab wounds punctured his heart and killed him.

 

‘This was a planned and deliberate attack’

 

“The defendant not only drove the victim to a secluded area in the opposite direction of his hotel, but also brought a kitchen knife with him,” prosecutors said in court filings. “Defendant did not use some type of pocket knife, but a cooking knife from an apartment kitchen. This was a planned and deliberate attack,” they added.

 

Surveillance footage early on April 4 showed Lee frantically seeking help and trying to use his phone after the stabbing. He somehow managed to call 911 and was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital, where he, unfortunately, succumbed to his wounds.

Police were able to unlock Lee’s phone during an investigation into the killing. They found he had a FaceTime call with Khazar Momeni, but court documents did not reveal exactly when that conversation took place, The San Francisco Standard reported.
