Chicago, Illinois – The death of a Chicago lottery winner has been ruled a homicide after initially being attributed to natural causes. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), medical examiners have now linked the sudden death of Urooj Khan, 46, to the ingestion of cyanide shortly before he died, triggering a homicide investigation.
Cook County Medical Examiner Stephen Cina, is quoted as stating of the incidence of cyanide poisonings, “It’s pretty unusual… I’ve had one, maybe two cases out of 4,500 autopsies I’ve done.”
Khan died a day after being issued a $425,000 check from the state Comptroller’s office after opting to take a lump sum for a lottery win.
Khan’s death is now reportedly under investigation.
