Workers have begun the process of exhuming the body of an Illinois lottery winner who authorities believe was poisoned.
A crew is digging at the north-side Chicago gravesite of Urooj Khan, whose July death at age 46 came one month after he became a $1 million winner on an Illinois lottery scratch ticket.
Investigators initially ruled Khan's manner of death natural, and Khan was buried. But after being prompted by a relative, the medical examiner's office in Cook County, Illinois, did more in-depth toxicology tests on the blood that the office had, and eventually determined there was a lethal amount of cyanide in Khan's system.
Police are now investigating Khan's death as a murder, and they want to use the exhumation to determine how the cyanide entered Khan's system. No arrests have been made in the case.

For every claimed felony drone attack in ANY country not belonging to the drinking Bales- 100 hundred failed psychological events among the rich or poor the same: every politician loves drama: drama makes money $$$ > let the drama roll.
A friend says its Karma- but I say she is missing the point completely.
People will do anything for money.
