CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - A suspect in the death of seven Chicago-area people who took cyanide-laced Tylenol in 1982 is calling a Massachusetts TV host "totally delusional" for asking whether he was responsible.

James W. Lewis made the comments Sunday on Cambridge Community
Television as he promoted his new book, a self-published thriller. The Cambridge resident also refused to discuss reports that Illinois authorities are seeking DNA samples from him and his wife.

No one has been charged with the Tylenol killings. Lewis spent 12 years in prison for extortion after sending a letter to Tylenol's manufacturer demanding $1 million to "stop the killing."

The FBI took items from his home in February 2009. News media have reported that he and his wife were asked for DNA samples during a closed court hearing last week in Massachusetts.
