Top news coming in to San Francisco is about a man, Urooj Khan, who died just one day after receiving his winnings from the lottery. The story may make people think before they give out information about having won the lottery.
Urooj Khan had won the lottery to the tune of $425,000 said the National Post, on January 7, 2013.
"That's horrific," says San Francisco resident, Katie Adler. "It's outrageous and I hope the murderer gets full punishment for that."
It had originally been thought that the lottery winner's death was natural, as had been reported by the Cook County Medical Examiner, Stephen Cina.
A relative of Urooj Khan, however, insisted that a re-exam be done and the body was exhumed. It was found that indeed, Urooj Khan had been murdered. He had ingested a lethal amount of cyanide. As a result, Urooj Khan's death has now been considered a homicide.
It was on July 20th of this year that Urooj Khan, age 46 when he came into a large sum of money - to be exact it was $1 million dollars before tax. No suspects have been mentioned as of the time of this writing.
