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.
