BOSTON – The Massachusetts medical examiner's office says cyanide poisoning killed an alleged extortion victim of James "Whitey" Bulger who had hoped to testify at Bulger's trial.A spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorney's Office said Sunday that the medical examiner concluded that acute cyanide toxicity killed 59-year-old Stephen Rakes of Quincy in July. His death was ruled a homicide.Rakes learned before his death that he wouldn't be called as a witness against Bulger, the Boston gangster convicted of murder in August.Authorities say Rakes' death wasn't related to the Bulger case.
How do they know it's not related? Unless they have evidence otherwise, I will believe it's related.
