Judge OKs exhumation of poisoned lottery winner

A Cook County judge has granted the State’s Attorney’s request to exhume the body of lottery winner, Urooj Khan, from his burial site at Rosehill Cemetery.

Khan’s July 20 death was classified as natural causes before investigators found traces of cyanide in his body.

They now want to examine his remains to see if the poison was consumed or inhaled.

Khan’s death came weeks after he won a $1 million jackpot on a scratch-off ticket.

Police questioned Khan’s widow about his last meal.

She says the family ate dinner together, and that she had nothing to do with Khan’s death.
