Of the man who was murdered after he won the lottery.
Her rouge -- died last July it one day after he received his big check for winning a million dollar scratch off ticket.
Now his brother.
Claims that Khan's wife Natalie tried to cash that check.
But that she isn't legally his wife now that would change things.
And cons sun seems to be siding with his uncle -- gallon eleven Alaska's -- -- that's interesting because he didn't have a will.
Without a will the -- would have been split between the wife and the daughter I think he has.
And -- but if she's not legally the wife she would not have gotten anything.
Yeah I wouldn't get half the money right and the money right now -- is being held in trust until they can figure this whole thing out but the family really is at war aware of the widow if as you say in fact is she really is the -- the brother of a -- gone who died of course after collecting on his million dollar -- ticket says that.
About four or five different times the days after his death the white was feverishly going around trying to cash this check but that she failed to catch it.
And the brother claims that this marriage that they so call -- in India.
Really is not legal and he wants the authorities to check that part out now the family feud gets worse because the sister of the Lotto winners now fighting for legal custody of the seventeen year old daughter.
From an earlier marriage that -- had even though the girl has spent most of her life living.
With the stepmother now I remember it was two months.
After he died the medical examiner ruled that it was natural causes you know heart disease the family pushed.
For a more thorough examination.
That's and they discovered he died from cyanide poisoning shortly after eating dinner.
That his wife prepared.
But the wife's attorneys say that she has been very honest and very forth right let's.
She had nothing to do with his murder if it is a murder which we don't even.
It can't draw that conclusion.
Based on what I've heard so far they were already wealthy before he won the lottery.
She didn't have anything financially gain by his death.
He says wealthy not really wealthy but they were doing fine he -- -- chain of dry cleaners in the Chicago area.
Medical examiner by the way is now hoping to exhume a rouge Khan's body.
-- looking for a court order on that that would happen sometime in the next couple weeks to perform a full autopsy which was never done because.
There was nothing suspicious about his death and again that money.
Is now being held its not being given out to anybody though a lot of the family members would like a little piece of it.
If she knew that they weren't legally married and that he had no well.
Then of -- I mean an Internet research it and search would have showed her that she was not going to get any money.
If he got so -- that I think visit.
-- her motive to kill -- you know she's married young he's making nice living now he's won this lottery.
If he dies without a will and they're not legally married she not gonna get anything.
Are illegals would her lawyers would dispute that a little bit negative saying that you know it's unclear right now with the Lazard Illinois for instance if she was married in California or was -- common law wife in California.
Then that would be in dispute so it.
It kind of depends I don't know her let her know her -- her civil lawyers at the ones are gonna you know contests -- -- the -- state context.
They may have a disagree with her criminal lawyer who's gonna wanna argue what I just argued.
And to be or try to get money you're gonna -- -- you just argued.
