Lottery winner's body exhumed after six months
Officials in Chicago have exhumed the body of a man who was poisoned with cyanide just after winning the lottery.
Cook County medical examiners say they will perform an autopsy on Urooj Khan immediately to determine exactly how the poison got into his system.
Khan died in July just as he was about to collect almost half a million dollars in lottery winnings.
His death was initially ruled as natural causes, but officials later reclassified it as a homicide.
