A San Francisco tech worker was found dead in a home last week, and a man has been arrested in connection with her death.

Scott Fisher, 29, was arrested in Concord, Calif., on Thursday morning, according to a press release from the San Francisco Police Department. He was then booked into San Francisco County Jail on a homicide charge.

Jail records reviewed by PEOPLE show Fisher is being held without bail. It’s unclear if he has entered a plea or retained an attorney to speak on his behalf.

The victim, who has been independently identified as 27-year-old Kimberly Wong by KPIX, KTVU and SFGate, was found dead by local police officers on Nov. 30, the release states. Police made the discovery after responding to a residential building for a welfare check.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. Her cause of death has not been released by police.

PEOPLE reached out to the San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office on Friday for additional details but did not immediately hear back.

According to her LinkedIn page, Wong was most recently a product designer for Plaid and was previously an intern at Splunk, both software development companies based in San Francisco. She graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in human centered design and engineering in 2018, the page shows.

Wong described herself on her personal website as someone who enjoyed creating illustrations, cooking and practicing yoga.

Anyone with information on the active homicide case is asked to call the SFPD tip line at 1-415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with “SFPD.”
