    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    If you are sure or nearly sure that it is haram money then you should return it to him, otherwise you are not responsible to investigate the matter, you are responsible only to distribute it among the poor correctly:

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
