CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s a fascinating mystery, with more questions than answers. Authorities have been trying to determine who poisoned a man who died days after winning a $1 million jackpot in a lottery instant game.
Urooj Khan, 46, died last July – before collecting his $425,000 in winnings after taxes – and his death was initially ruled to be the result of natural causes. But relatives asked for a complete autopsy, which months later determined he died from cyanide poisoning.
CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office has sought a court order to have Khan’s body exhumed for further toxicology tests.
