Cook County Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Cina speaks at a news conference in Chicago, Friday, Jan. 18, regarding the exhumation earlier in the day of Urooj Khan, 46, who died in July of cyanide poisoning after winning the lottery. Cina said the remains of Khan were in an advanced state of decomposition but pathologists were able to obtain samples from most major organs as well as the man's hair and fingernails. Final results from autopsy won't be complete for a few weeks. His death was initially ruled a result of natural causes but later reclassified a homicide. AP Photo
