There are still many questions after the newly released autopsy results for a Chicago lottery winner who died mysteriously of cyanide poisoning.
The Cook Cook Medical Examiner says the death of 46-year-old Urooj Khan was due to cyanide poisoning with coronary heart disease as a contributing factor.
Khan’s brother says he asked the medical examiner’s office to take another look at the case last summer because it just didn’t make sense. Additional testing eventually discovered Khan was poisoned.
His brother and his sister are currently in a court battle with Khan’s widow over his estate.
Khan signed an agreement ensuring his wife would inherit his share of a $2 million dry cleaning business in the event of his death.
He also made his wife the sole heir to his home in West Rogers Park.
