A million dollar murder mystery is topping news from around the nation. Police in Chicago are trying to determine if there is a link between a businessman's good fortune in the Illinois lottery and his fatal poisoning just days before he was set to collect his big prize. 

At first, officials believed Yarooshj Hhan died of natural causes. But after a second look, the medical examiner found evidence of cyanide. 

Dr. Stephen Cina explained, "A family member contacted the doctor who had done the autopsy and suggested we might want to look a little further into the case."

Doctor Cina says his office will most likely exhume Khan's body as his probe of the the million dollar murder mystery moves forward.
