West Rogers Park man who won the Lotto murdered

When Urooj Khan won $1 million dollars in July of 2012 after playing an Illinois Lottery scratch game called Cash Jackpot, he jumped two feet in the air. Then Khan went back to the 7-Eleven store where he bought the ticket in the 6800 block of North Western, giving the clerk $100.00 tip.

A day after he collected the lump sum of nearly $425,000 dollars, on July 20, 2012, Khan was found dead.

At first the death was reported as accidental, dying of natural causes. But something didn't sit well with a relative who asked for a further investigation.

Now authorities say Khan was poisoned with cyanide. The Cook County Medical Examiner Stephen Cina says Khan's body will be exhumed for a better investigation into his murder.

I wonder if the City of Chicago murder clearance numbers will be changed for 2012 to reflect this murder?
