Poisoned Lottery Winner’s Widow Should Get Most Of His $2 Million Estate, Lawyer Says.

What some people will do for money these days. According to the Chicago Sun Times, another twist in the mystery of the poisoned lottery winner, a lawyer representing the widow has produced documents that show two thirds of the deceased North side businessman’s $2 million estate goes to the widow. Attorney Al-Haroon Husain found an agreement that the deceased signed before death stipulating his wife in the even of his death would get his interest in the dry cleaning operation. The agreement was signed on May 2 said Husain who is representing the wife in a pending court case to divvy up the assets and winning lottery ticket of her deceased husband. Money always complicates things, doesn’t it? The brother of the deceased doesn’t believe the documents authenticity and find it highly suspicious that the document appears now. Her husband, Urooj Khan the man in question, hit the jackpot weeks after signing the agreement and was found dead July 20 of cyanide poisoning. The homicide has caused family tension and made international headlines after his body was exhumed to determine how the cyanide got in his system. His brother, Imtiaz Khan, claims that the only child of the deceased is being excluded from any inheritance according to court papers. The matter is further complicated because there is no will. While the estate is valued at $2 million, Husain argues that the business and real estate combined at $1.32 million can no longer be included since they belong to the wife, Ansari. That means the estate is only worth $680,000 which includes the lottery win, so without a will state law dictates that the two survivors, wife and daughter, must split the estate. When told Khan’s brother brushed off the validity of the agreement, Husain, said that it’s legal and he wrote it himself. However, Husain questions why the deceased decided to ink the agreement and list heirs which is typically done in a will. The medical examiner initially ruled his death natural with hardening of the arteries, but on the urging of a relative to re-examine the body, the medical examiner changed it to a homicide in November when he determined from a toxicology report that it was cyanide poisoning. As to how the cyanide got into his system, perhaps by inhaling or eating something tainted with the poison. Test results are expected next week. No arrest have been made and no suspects have been identified. Ansari denies any involvement in her husband’s death. She has said that the night before he died, she made him dinner, he went to bed, and fell sick in the night then was pronounced dead early the next morning at Evanston hospital. Who to believe? This sounds like something out of a lifetime movie.
