This way Rahm gets to collect income tax on the winnings and death tax in one fell swoop - Chicago thug politics at work.

Maybe he wanted to die rich, before he spent it all on strippers.

“Urooj Khan is the newest $1 million winner from the Illinois Lottery’s $3,000,000 Cash Jackpot instant game. Khan bought his winning $1 million ticket at 7-Eleven, 6801 North Western Avenue in Chicago.

Khan along with his wife, Shabana Ansari, their daughter, Jasmeen Khan, and several friends gathered at the lucky, winning store today to accept an oversized check from Illinois Lottery representatives.”

Sad for him in someone wanted to poison him. I hope it was an accident......

I certainly wouldn't put any money on the possibility of accidental cyanide poisoning. Other poisonings perhaps, but not cyanide.

He had supper with his wife just before expiring. It might be hard to prove anything after six months.

If you strike it rich, never go back where you came from.
