As I have previously discussed, Urooj Khan died from cyanide poisoning the day after winning a $1 million lottery. His death led to a court battle between his wife and daughter from a previous marriage. The parties have now settled.
About a third of the lottery winnings will go to his 18-year-old daughter Jasmeen as well as five condominiums valued at a combined $250,000. His widow will keep their dry cleaning business valued at $1 million and the rest of the lottery money.
No one has been charged in the homicide , and the investigation remains open.
