Body Of Dead Lottery Winner To Be Exhumed Friday

CHICAGO (CBS) — Authorities expect to begin the exhumation of the remains of poisoned lottery winner Urooj Khan about 7 a.m. Friday, a source told the Sun-Times Thursday.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office wants to inspect Khan’s remains to see if it can determine how cyanide entered his system.

He was buried in July at Rosehill Cemetery on the North Side, dying shortly after he won $1 million from a state lottery ticket.

Police have questioned Khan’s wife in his death, but she has denied any wrongdoing.

The medical examiner’s office could not confirm the exhumation time.
