Lottery Winner Poisoned
CHICAGO — It is a million dollar murder mystery. Chicago police were working to determine if there is a link between a north side businessman’s good fortune in the Illinois Lottery and his apparent murder on the day before he was to have collected his winnings.
“He was a family man who worked hard for his family,” friend Jimmy Goreel told NBC Chicago. “I just can’t see it happening. If that’s true, it’s sad.”
The victim, 46-year-old Urooj Khan, bought a winning scatch-off ticket at Goreel’s convenience store on North Western Avenue last July. Goreel said he was elated. And it wasn’t his first jackpot.
