(CHICAGO, IL) - In the week since news surfaced that a Chicago man was poisoned to death before he was to collect a lottery payout, surprising details about his convoluted family saga have trickled out daily.

Urooj Khan's widow and siblings fought for months over the businessman's estate, including the lottery check.

His father-in-law owed tens of thousands of dollars in taxes. His 17-year-old daughter from a previous marriage had moved out of her stepmom's home and into his sister's after Khan's death. Then his ex-wife came forward, announcing she hadn't seen her daughter in more than a decade.

The slowly emerging family backstory has added layers of intrigue to a baffling case.

Authorities remain tightlipped. In the coming weeks, they plan to exhume the 46-year-old Indian immigrant's body for more tests.
