DENVER (CBS4) ― It has the makings of international intrigue. Less than two weeks before the Democratic National Convention a man has been found dead in a Denver hotel room with a container of what authorities initially suspect to be the deadly poison cyanide.
Adding to the intrigue is that the dead man, Saleman Abdirahman Dirie, 29, appears to be from outside the U.S. No passport was found on Dirie, who is believed to have entered the country from Canada.
A large container of a white powdery substance was found in the man's room on the fourth floor of The Burnsley hotel at 10th and Grant.
Tests are now being done by the Denver Police Crime Lab to determine exactly what the substance is. The tests could take days.
It's believed Dirie died from something other than the substance that was in the container.

Disturbing stuff. *Shudder*
“Democrat Convention connection?”
Saleman Abdirahman Dirie? Uh, no....NO.....silly conspiracy theorists....nothing to see here.....just move along now.
Is this because of the holes in his head?
white powder eh...?
Maybe we would have caught him instead of finding him dead
If this guy is one of the bad ones with intell, just think what we could have gotten from him if caught alive
Ottawa man, 29, dies of possible cyanide poisoning at hotel in Denver
The Denver Coroner’s Office found no obvious cause of death, and tests to determine cyanide poisoning will take at least a week and possibly longer, said chief deputy coroner Michelle Weiss-Samaras.
She said that investigators found a small bottle of sodium cyanide, “which you can buy” she said.
Yea, I did. Not sure why it didn’t show up
thanks for this thread - I didn’t see the ‘other one’ either.
Because the search function is broken.
I found it just fine using Search.
