Lottery Winner Dead Of Cyanide Poisoning


CHICAGO (CBS) — Investigators have been trying to determine how a 46-year-old man who won $1 million on an instant lottery game last summer ended up dying from cyanide poisoning.

Urooj Kahn won a $1 million jackpot in a scratch-off game in June, after buying a ticket at a 7-Eleven in Rogers Park.

He repeatedly jumped for joy, and shouted “I hit a million!” but just days later he was dead.

Cook County Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Cina said Monday the initial autopsy ruled his death to be the result of natural causes.

“He did not have any obvious trauma. The initial investigation didn’t suggest anything suspicious about his death,” Cina said.

But days after Kahn died at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, a relative called the medical examiner’s office, saying something didn’t add up.

“They just felt this didn’t seem likely, that it didn’t seem like it could have been a natural to them, and they just wanted us to look a little harder,” he said. “In forensics, you have to have an open mind, and when additional information comes to light, you have to be willing to revisit cases.”

So a new autopsy was ordered, and toxicology tests revealed a new cause of death: homicide by cyanide.

“Life’s not like CSI. Sometimes there’s not a smoking gun that leads us immediately toward the perfect conclusion,” Cina said.

Kahn lived an immigrant’s dream. Arriving from India with nothing, he owned several dry cleaners and rental property.

At Kahn’s shop on Western Avenue, his widow said she could write a book about how great her husband was, but she didn’t want to talk on camera.

Kahn was buried at Rosehill Cemetery, but the next step in the investigation could be exhuming his body.

“I’ve been in discussions with the Chicago Police Department, and with the [Cook County] State’s Attorney’s office, and it looks like we’re leaning in that direction,” Cina said.

Exhuming Kahn’s body could produce more detailed toxicology information. Death by poisoning of any type is extremely rare. Of the 508 Chicagoans murdered last year, Kahn was the only one who was poisoned.

Cina said, of the 4,400 autopsies he’s performed in his career, he’s had only one poisoning.

He said poisoning is so rare, he wrote about the case in a medical journal.

A damn shame they missed that the first time. A lottery winner dying a few days later and they didn't suspect poisoning? I wonder how many other poisonings they miss. Out here cutting up people's bodies and weighing people's brains for nothing. Quacks.

let's see who turns in the ticket

what his will looked like before and if he had any intentions to change it

and how long he's been poisoned (hair analysis, etc)

it'a shame that you have to hide good things from people

are there products that he uses that have a high cyanide content?

if he died off quickly, maybe something he used to celebrate did him in

I thought it was odd how his extended family had to let the ME's office know something was wrong with him suddenly dying and not the authorities or wife. Or authorities whose job it is to investigate deaths.Geek

My best friend swears I'm crazy, but I always say I wouldn't tell anyone if I won the lottery.

I always said that cuz of the leeches that would come outta the woodwork begging, but who knew it could get this real?!
