The widow of a lottery winner who died before he could collect his winnings is eager for his body to be exhumed after his death was reclassified as a homicide.
Urooj Khan of West Rogers died of cyanide poisoning weeks after winning a $1 million lottery jackpot.
Cook County authorities plan to get a court order to exhume the body in search of further evidence in Khan’s death.
Shabana Ansari, Khan’s wife said she was questioned by police and denies any involvement in Khan’s death.
Despite initial reports, Ansari also denied she fed her late husband dinner the night he died.
There has been no indication from the Chicago Police Department that Ansari was involved in Khan’s death and no charges have been filed against her.
