Urooj (oo-ROOJ’) Khan‘s death on July 20 was initially ruled a result of natural causes. A relative’s request for a deeper look resulted in the conclusion months later that Kahn was poisoned as he was about to collect $425,000 in winnings.

Ansari says she hopes the truth will come out in the homicide investigation.

Ansari recalled Khan as a workaholic and a good person.
