Jumping and screaming

Khan decided to leave Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh in 1989, and he moved to Chicago. He started a couple of dry-cleaning venues, while he also invested in real-estate. In June last year, Khan purchased a scratch card ticket at a 7-Eleven store although he had promised himself to stop gambling. After winning the cash prize, the Indian-born started jumping around like a child and screamed with joy.

Physical breakdown

Urooj Khan was found dead on July 20, the day after a traditional Indian meal with his family. The 46-year-old deceased lived with his spouse and daughter in a house based in West Rogers Park, Chicago. Khan told his wife he wasn’t feeling very well that night, followed by a physical breakdown. Authorities determined he had died of natural causes, but one of Khan’s relatives smelt a rat.
