Wife says poisoned lottery winner had no enemies

CHICAGO (AP) — The wife of a Chicago lottery winner who was poisoned with cyanide says his death devastated her and she doesn’t believe he had any enemies.

Shabana Ansari spoke to The Associated Press this afternoon at a dry cleaner her husband started after immigrating to the U.S. from India in 1989. Ansari wouldn’t talk about the circumstances of her husband’s death, saying it was too painful.

Urooj Khan’s death on July 20 was initially ruled a result of natural causes. A relative’s request for a deeper look resulted in the conclusion months later that Kahn was poisoned as he was about to collect $425,000 in winnings.

Ansari says she hopes the truth will come out in the homicide investigation.

Ansari recalled Khan as a workaholic and a good person.

Surely Shabana Ansari didn't kill her husband so she would have all the money.
