United Press International

A bank officer in the Seattle suburbs has died from cyanide contained in an Extra-Strength Excedrin capsule she swallowed last week, authorities disclosed Monday night.

The victim, identified as Sue Snow, 40, was found collapsed on the floor of her home in Auburn June 11 and died later that day from acute cyanide poisoning, the King County medical examiner’s office reported.

Auburn Police Chief Jake Evans said the Excedrin capsule tainted with the cyanide is believed to have been purchased in Auburn, some 20 miles south of Seattle.

Auburn police and FDA agents were going to stores in the area Monday night removing all capsules of Extra-Strength Excedrin.
