Think there's more to the cyanide death at the hotel?
The case of the Somalian native who died of cyanide poisoning in a Denver hotel is still percolating with the death still not ruled a suicide.
The Canadian man found dead next to a jar of cyanide in a Denver hotel room was buried Thursday at Hampden Cemetery in Denver after a service at Masjid Abu Bakr mosque.
Family members said Saleman Abhirahman Dirie, 29, had schizophrenia, lending credence to the theory that he may have committed suicide.
FBI and hazmat teams got involved in the incident because cyanide can be used to make chemical weapons, and the foreign national had arrived in Denver shortly before the start of the Democratic National Convention.
Dirie's body was found Monday in his room on the fourth floor of the Burnsley Hotel at 1000 Grant St.
The Denver coroner confirmed Dirie was killed by cyanide poisoning, but the death has not been ruled a suicide pending further laboratory testing.
Think there's more to this story? Think it will come out before the Democratic National Convention?
