Yet another intriguing detail in the strange case of the poisoned lottery winner: In an interview with the AP on Tuesday, wife Shabana Ansari said that on the night that he died, Urooj Khan became ill shortly after they had dinner together. Indeed, a police source tells Fox News Khan he ate what was likely his last meal at home with his wife and daughter—but the source says he was the only one to eat the Indian dinner Ansari prepared. Khan became extremely ill later that night and was rushed to the hospital, where he later died. Police have yet to name a suspect in the case. (Meanwhile, Khan's family is fighting over his lotto check.)
