Who Killed the Nuclear Scientist?

Last month, Iran reported the death of Ardeshir Hassanpour, 44, one of the country's leading nuclear scientists. The news fueled a wave of rumors and conspiracy theories in cyberspace.

The question is: "Who did it?".

Iranians said it on Jan. 21 it was gas poisoning while Stratfor, a company based in the United States, asserted it was a "hit" and claimed it had received evidence substantiating radioactive poisoning.

Though the mystery remains unsolved, a couple of things are certain: Hassanpour is dead, and footage of his funeral was posted on the Internet.

Or was it?
