Pound of cyanide found in room where man died

DENVER (AP) — Author­i­ties in Den­ver say they have found about a pound of high­ly tox­ic sodi­um cyanide in a hotel room where a man’s body was dis­cov­ered.

Police say foul play is not sus­pect­ed and FBI spokes­woman Kathy Wright said Wednes­day there was no appar­ent con­nec­tion to ter­ror­ism.

The man’s body was found Mon­day at the Burns­ley Hotel about four blocks from the Col­orado state Capi­tol, and inves­ti­ga­tors say he had been dead for sev­er­al days.

Police on Wednes­day iden­ti­fied a white pow­der found in the room as sodi­um cyanide, which can be used as a pes­ti­cide or to extract gold from ore.

The med­ical exam­in­er’s office says it is await­ing test results to deter­mine whether cyanide killed the 29-year-old Cana­di­an man.
