Tech worker’s shocking death – boyfriend in custody

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — An arrest has been made for the alleged murder of a woman found dead in her Presidio Heights home. From the beginning, investigators believed the 27-year-old tech worker’s death was a case of domestic violence, according to police reports. The victim, Kimberly Wong, was discovered unresponsive during a welfare check conducted by authorities on Thursday evening in the Presidio Heights neighborhood.

Emergency services attempted to revive Wong but were unsuccessful, and she was pronounced dead at the scene. The arrest of Scott Fisher, 29, occurred around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday in Concord. San Francisco County Jail record indicates Fisher was booked Thursday afternoon for murder.

Wong, a product designer, was employed at Plaid, a payment site based in San Francisco. A statement was released by the company expressing shock and grief at her passing. Wong’s LinkedIn profile revealed that she also had experience as a user-experience designer at Splunk, a software company specializing in data analysis. Colleagues described her as smart, talented, and positive, highlighting her impact on the team.

Friends and co-workers expressed disbelief and sorrow over Wong’s tragic death. Alberto Forero, a former co-worker and her manager at Splunk described her as a dedicated employee and a lovely person. He expressed how unsettling it was that someone so young and promising would meet such a senseless end. Forero stated, “It’s incredibly unsettling that she passed in that manner. I’m hoping there’s justice for her. She’s a lovely person.”

Neighbors in the area, while shocked, acknowledged that Wong was the victim least likely to be involved in such a crime. They emphasized that these types of incidents are unpredictable and can happen to anyone. The San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium, headed by Beverly Upton, is closely following the case in hopes of finding justice for Wong.

The San Francisco Police Department has classified the case as an open homicide investigation. Further details regarding the cause and circumstances of Wong’s death have not been released to the public.
