Lottery winner's death ruled homicide

Illinois lottery winner Urooj Khan died of cyanide toxicity and his death has been ruled a homicide, Cook County Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Cina said Friday.

Khan's body was exhumed from a Chicago-area gravesite in January for additional tests after earlier toxicology results indicated he died of cyanide poisoning.

Khan, 46, died in July, the day after the Illinois lottery issued him a check for about $425,000 after taxes. He won the money playing a scratch-off game a month earlier.
