An autopsy has begun on a Chicago man who was poisoned after winning the lottery.

Authorities exhumed the body of Urooj Khan from his burial plot at Rosehill cemetery on the North Side Friday morning.

Khan died in July after winning $1 million.

An autopsy last summer ruled it was of natural causes, but toxicology tests performed at the request of a relative found cyanide in his system.

Investigators are trying to figure out if Khan inhaled or ingested the poison.
