His brilliance enabled him to learn three languages  (English, Farsi and Arabic). On December 15, 2016, Soleiman died during an incident in which the guards at the Central East were applying force to him. Soleiman was awaiting a medical evaluation and a bed at the Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health but he never made it.
