Woman found dead in apartment, boyfriend arrested for her murder

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – The boyfriend of Kimberly Wong, a 27-year-old technology professional based in San Francisco, has been detained by authorities on murder charges. This development follows an investigation into her death, which law enforcement officials suspect resulted from an instance of domestic violence.

Wong’s lifeless body was found during a welfare check on November 30 within her Presidio Heights apartment situated on Clay Street. This was the residence that she is alleged to have shared with her boyfriend, Scott Fisher, a 29-year-old resident of Concord. Life-saving efforts were attempted by officers on the scene, but Wong was ultimately pronounced dead.

Fisher was apprehended by the authorities in Concord, located approximately 30 miles northeast of Wong’s San Francisco home, on the morning of December 2. He was then transported and held at the San Francisco County Jail, where he has since been charged with homicide.

Authorities initially speculated Wong’s death to be rooted in domestic violence, though the reasoning behind this suspicion directed toward Fisher remains unclear. The exact cause of Wong’s death has also not yet been revealed.

Employed as a product designer at the San Francisco-based tech firm, Plaid, Wong’s colleagues memorialized her as a “smart, talented, positive, and valued member of [their] team” who had a significant impact on everyone she interacted with. This statement was given in a comment to SF Gate by the company.

Jail records indicate Fisher is currently being detained without bail. Police stated that the case is ongoing and remains under active investigation.
