Lottery winners death a murder mystery: Cold case files
The death of Illinois lottery winner Orooj Khan, a man who won $1million in lottery last month turned up dead following the New Year — which has prompted a murder investigation as to how the winner actually died.
“That … led us to issue an amended death certificate that (established) cyanide toxicity as the cause of death, and the manner of death as homicide,” Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Steve Cina said Monday.
According to a statement released by the Chicago Police Department, no arrests have been made so far in the investigation:
“We are investigating it as a murder, and we’re working closely with the medical examiner’s office,” Chicago police spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said Monday.
