$1 Million Winner: Lottery Murder Mystery
After the Winner of a Huge Illinois Jackpot Dies of Cyanide Poisoning, His Relatives Turn a Wary Eye on One Another
Initially attributed to natural causes, Khan's death is now the focus of a murder investigation, tripped when his brother asked the medical examiner to probe deeper. When pathologists then found cyanide in blood tested after Khan died, his body was exhumed on Jan. 18, leaving relatives eyeing one another with suspicion. Court records reveal the family argued for months over Khan's estate, while his sister claims the only ones home the night he died were his wife, Shabana Ansari, 32, his daughter Jasmeen, 17, and his wife's father, Fareedun Ansari, 72, who, records show, was thousands of dollars in debt. Even more intriguing, say sources: All but Khan skipped the meal. Ansari and her father have denied any role in Khan's death. "No one would dare kill him," she says. While investigators await exhumation results, there's only one certainty. "Poisons are premeditated weapons," says forensic toxicologist John Trestrail III. "It takes a great deal of planning."
