CHICAGO (AP) - The medical examiner helping investigate a Chicago man's cyanide poisoning says pathologists have been able to get samples from the man's exhumed remains.
Dr. Stephen Cina said at a news conference Friday that the remains of Urooj Khan were in an advanced state of decomposition. But Cina says pathologists were able to obtain samples from most major organs as well as the man's hair and fingernails.
Final results from autopsy won't be complete for a few weeks.
Cina said he hopes investigators will be able to determine exactly how Khan ingested the cyanide. He says he didn't see anything that would change his conclusion that Khan was a homicide victim.
Khan died in July after winning the lottery. His death was initially ruled a result of natural causes.
