Wife of Lottery Winner Asks For His Body To Be Exhumed

LotteryUrooj Khan is both the luckiest and the unluckiest man in the world. One day he was cashing his lottery prize worth more than $400,000 and the next day he died of cyanide poisoning. Now, his wife has come forward supporting the exhuming of Khan's body to be examined by forensic analysis. His wife, speaking through her attorney, claimed that she had nothing to do with the death. She said that they all had the same meal together the night before he died and has no idea how he was poisoned. Among the people at Khan's last meal was his wife's father, who apparently owes $124,603 in tax liens to the IRS. The court will hold a hearing on whether they will exhume the body on January 11, 2013.
