urooj khan lottery winner killed poisoned cyanide

Urooj Khan, the 46-year-old Chicago lottery winner who died on July 20 — one day after collecting his winnings — was poisoned to death with cyanide, according to new information from the local medical examiner.

Originally investigators ruled Khan had died of natural causes, but pressed by a family member who suspected foul play, officials performed a full tox screen and discovered Khan had been poisoned.

Khan opted for the lump sum payout of $425,000 on his $1 million win. A day after reaping his massive reward, he dropped dead. His death is now classified a homicide and his body may be exhumed as part of a full investigation.
