(Chicago) Death by poisoning.

The medical examiner in Chicago says a man who won one million dollars in the lottery was murdered.

46-year-old Urooj Khan hit the jackpot on a scratch-off lottery ticket and died the next day.

The medical examiner originally ruled his death as natural causes, but his family insisted that something was wrong.

They were right.

Khan was given a lethal amount of cyanide.

Now it’s up to the police to find out who killed him.

Kahn planned to use the money to pay off his mortgage, some bills and was going to make a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
