Chemist Employed As A Private Contractor By U.S. Government Found Dead
Hobart police investigate death of 59-year-old man


Police are investigating the death of a 59-year-old Hobart man whose body was found lying near a container of potassium cyanide.

"We're not ruling anything out as to the cause of death," police Detective David Evans said.

The deceased is identified as Steven Lewis Weinbrenner, Evans said.

Police were called to the Weinbrenner home, in the 300 block of Fox Trail Court, shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday after receiving a call from the deceased man's son.

Both the Hobart Fire Department and hazmat personnel were called to the scene because of the potassium cyanide found in the house, Evans said.

Hazmat personnel removed the body to a secure site.

Weinbrenner had been employed as a chemist, but was most recently working as a private contractor for the government in Afghanistan, Evans said.

Evans said Weinbrenner had been home, but was scheduled to go back to Afghanistan later this week.

This happened in Hobart, Indiana. Hobart is about a 45 minute drive from Chicago.

Use it for experiments and reactions.
Or he just made it to kill himself which would take him about an hour.
Or he was drunk and thought it was a container of coffee.
Or someone murdered him.

In the laboratory, small amounts of HCN are produced by the addition of acids to cyanide salts of alkali metals:
This reaction is sometimes the basis of accidental poisonings because the acid converts a nonvolatile cyanide salt into the gaseous HCN.

Bullshit. He WOULD NOT have permission to have that at his home. He would have access to it, yes, but it is not legal keep HCN in your home.

Either he didn't care about the felonies from possession, he was doing his own "research" and knew the legal risks and ignored them, or he was 'suicided'.

I don't know enough to form any opinion on this other than it smells fishy.
