Deccan Herald: Chicago Police Exhume Body of Indian American Lottery Winner Fearing He Was Murdered

posted by Randall

Police Line Police suspect an Indian American who had just won one million dollars in a lottery may have been murdered and are asking that his body be exhumed. The official cause of death was listed as natural after investigators found no trauma to the body or anything suspicious, reported the Deccan Herald.

But a relative encouraged the medical examiner to take a closer look and toxicology results found Urooj Khan, 46, died of cyanide poisoning. Police have not ruled out that Khan was killed because of his big lottery win. The State Attorney General is planning to file papers in court formally requesting that the body be exhumed.
“Based on the information we have now and the (toxicology results), we’re  comfortable where we are right now,”
Cook County Medical Examiner Stephen J. Cina said.
