Estate of Poisoned Lottery Winner Settled


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.
