Here’s what bugs me about these stories. When the authorities don’t know anything, they should just say they don’t know anything, don’t have enough evidence to make any conclusions one way or another, and leave it at that. Not “We have no evidence to believe that this was terrorism.” All the evidence isn’t in yet. Do the tests, wait for the results, then make your statements.
The FBI and local authorities are trying to sort out the mystery of what happened to a man found dead at the Burnsley Hotel in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood with a foreign substance that the coroner’s office said might be cyanide.
On Tuesday, the man was identified as Saleman Abdirahman Dirie, a 29-year-old Canadian. Denver police said they believe he had been dead for several days before officers found him Monday morning.
“Because of the suspicious nature of the death and the unidentified substance – it leads to a lot of questions,” Special Agent Kathy Wright, an FBI spokeswoman, said Tuesday.
The coroner’s office said it completed an autopsy Tuesday, but medical examiners can’t determine the manner and cause of death until they have the results of lab tests. Foul play is not suspected…
…Although the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was alerted and is helping in the investigation, Wright emphasized that agents do not have information that would lead them to believe that the victim was a “terrorist or has terrorist ties.”
